Harvey Weinstein has taken part in a new interview since he was charged with sexual misconduct and abuse.
The disgraced film producer spoke to the New York Post after his back surgery in a hospital room in New York City.
A message Weinstein wants publicising is everything he’s done for women, and expresses his feelings about being a “forgotten man,” since allegations were made by over 90 different women of sexual abuse and misconduct.
He said, “I made more movies directed by women and about women than any filmmaker, and I’m talking about 30 years ago. I’m not talking about now when it’s vogue. I did it first! I pioneered it!”
The 67-year-old professes, “It all got eviscerated because of what happened. My work has been forgotten.” — an example of his work includes giving $10 million to Gwyneth Paltrow to star in View from the Top.
If he’s convicted of the predatory sexual assault, rape and criminal sex act he faces life in prison. The trial is set for January 6, 2020, and Weinstein has pled not guilty to all five charges against him.
