Oliver Stone — WENN

Obviously, Harvey Weinstein has not lost all of its support. The producer and Hollywood mogul, accused of sexual harassment and rape, has been defended by
Oliver Stone, american director of the “documentary” on Vladimir Putin, in which he gave the Russian president, uttering all kinds of lies without ever contradicting each other. The latter, president of the jury of a film festival in Busan, South Korea, has estimated that Harvey Weinstein was ” condemned by a system of vigilantes “.

“Me, I believe in the theory according to which it is necessary to wait until this happens at the trial,” said the director, taking the view that the film industry and the audience judged it prematurely Harvey Weinstein. “If he has broken the law, it will,” added Oliver Stone. For me, a man should not be convicted by a system of vigilantes. “Hollywood is filled with ” stories of horror “, but the charges against the producer, which are spread out over many years, are for the moment only rumors, writes the director of JFK.

“I’m not going to comment on the popular speech”

“What he is going through is not easy. During this period, I was a rival and I didn’t really know him. I’ve heard stories of horrors on the world in the work, so I’m not going to comment on the popular speech “, said Oliver Stone. Harvey Weinstein, one of the most powerful producers of Hollywood, was fired Sunday by his own production house, The Weinstein Company, three days after the publication in the american daily newspaper New York Times investigation revealing a series of accusations of sexual harassment against him.
