Hollywood Knew of Harvey Weinstein’s Sex Addiction Claims Screenwriter

As claims of sexual harassment continue to pile on against entertainment mogul, Harvey Weinstein, there is one screenwriter who is speaking out against the complicit Hollywood enablers who turned a blind cheek for decades.   While most of the industry is saying that were blindsided by these allegations, screenwriter Scott Rosenberg, someone who worked closely with Weinstein and Co. for about a decade is saying that he had always known something was afoul, and that he is sorry for not speaking up until now.

He goes on to say that “Everybody f****** knew”  three times on a his Facebook diatribe.  Scott writes that he was there to witness Harvey’s acts of indiscretion from 1994 to the early 2000’s, but because of all the benefits Harvey and his brother Bob, afforded him, he turned the blind eye.   He writes that Harvey was beyond generous in treating his staff during the early days of Miramax – tickets to the Super Bowl, invitations to extravagant parties, broadway show tickets, private jets, etc.  That generosity coupled with the satiating thirst to “make it” in Hollywood, led agents, directors, producers, actors, and journalists alike to keep his reprehensible acts private among their inner circle.   Although Scott found that air of secrecy necessary back then, he is now apologizing for doing so, and is enraged that others “who knew” are not following suit.

He writes the “current flood of sanctimonious denial and condemnation that now crashes upon these shores of rectitude in gloppy tides of bull**** righteousness.” the most reprehensible.  He goes on to write

“And I saw you. And I talked about it with you. You, the big producers; you, the big directors; you, the big agents; you, the big financiers. And you, the big rival studio chiefs; you, the big actors; you, the big actresses; you, the big models. You, the big journalists; you, the big screenwriters; you, the big rock stars; you, the big restaurateurs; you, the big politicians”

Scott’s lengthy post comes on the heels of Game of Thrones actress, Lena Headey’s detail of her “powerless” experience with Harvey.  She joins Angelina Jolie, Gwenyth Paltow, Kate Beckinsale, Heather Graham, Asia Argento, Rosanna Arquette, Cara Delevigne, Claire Forlani, Ashley Judd, Rose Mcgowen and Mira Sorvino, and dozens of other actresses who have publicly detailed incidents of harassment and assault against the former Oscar winner.

Weinstein is now reportedly in rehab to get help for his sex and behavioral addiction.
