Harvey Weinstein was like a father to me: Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence Tells Oprah She Wants to Form a Commission Against Sexual Abuse in Hollywoodfacebook dialogPinterest

When speaking with The Hollywood Reporter in a discussion published on the 6th of December, the Oscar victor claimed that many people in the industry urged her to talk about the allegations. The Weinstein Company notably produced and distributed "Silver Linings Playbook", the film that earned Lawrence her first Oscar win.

Speaking as part of The Hollywood Reporter's Actress Roundtable, Lawrence recounted a time where a director made inappropriate remarks towards her.

"Just speaking for myself, I had known him since I was 20, and he had only ever been nice to me - except for the moments that he wasn't, and then I called him an asshole, and we moved on".

Despite the horrific accusations against the disgraced producer, Jennifer said he acted like a father to her. Harvey knew who she was since she was 20-years-old, so the thought of him being a rapist was truly shocking.

She told Oprah Winfrey in a new interview that she "didn't know that he was a rapist." .

"As I watched her interact with the other guests, I saw a highly confident woman and I really didn't think she needed any advice from anyone", Lansing continued.

She is ready to take chances again with her upcoming film Red Sparrow, out in March, which features her in a sexual role - a first for the actor who was the victim of a nude photo hack more than three years ago. It's taking somebody's intellectual property but also my body.

"I've got a pretty good speech", Lawrence said, adding with a laugh that "it ends with a martini to the face". "It was violating on a sexual level".

"And then when I said yes to 'Red Sparrow, ' I felt I was taking something back".

Jennifer Lawrence looked to producer Harvey Weinstein as a "paternal" figure before the allegations of sexual harassment and abuse emerged against the famed Hollywood producer.

She said she hopes to see "social change" and that there needs to be equality between men and women for that to happen. I just thought, 'I'll never do that again.

Although Lawrence admitted she was well aware of Weinstein's reputation of being "a tough guy, a brute" and "a tough guy to negotiate with", she was shocked that he was just one of many men in a high position who abused his power. "I always knew I was going to be famous, so I am totally prepared for it".
