While interviewing ABC News, performing artist Ashley Judd reviewed an experience she had with Harvey Weinstein, something that happened long ago, about 20 years ago, where the producer supposedly sexually annoyed her. Judd says she was afraid when she was caught by Weinstein in a lodging room and offered to have intercourse with him after she won an Oscar to escape from being assaulted.
“He continued coming at me with so much other stuff, lastly I just stated, ‘When I win an Oscar in one of your films, deal?’ ” Judd made an offer.
“And he was like, ‘Yeah, when you get nominated.’ And I stated,‘No! When I win an Oscar.’ And I fled. I just fled,” she stated.
The 49-year-old stated she had no notion in the matter of what kind of man Weinstein was when she met him for the first time in a hotel room to deal a buisness, alone of course.
“I had no warning,”Judd expressed, “I remember the lurch when I went to the desk and I said, ‘Mr. Weinstein, is he on the patio?‘ and they answered, ‘No, he’s in his room.’ “
“I resembled, ‘Ugh, are you joking me?’ “she thought, however continued at any rate since she “had a business arrangement.”
“That’s his way of sexual predation. That’s how he rolled,” the actress pointed out.
In Weinstein’s lodging room, the producer professedly offered her a back rub, which she declined.
“I thought ‘no’ meant ‘no,’ ” she stated. “I battled with this volley of ‘nos,’ which he overlooked. Who knows? Perhaps he heard them as ‘possibly,’ perhaps he heard them as ‘yeses,’ perhaps they turned him on. I don’t know seriously.”
She was then prompted a storage room, where she was made a request to help Weinstein to choose his suit for that day. Judd expressed she felt caught and Weinstein kept on pursueing her, requesting that the actress go with him to the washroom.
Judd at that point chose to guarantee to sleep with Weinstein at a later date, when she wins an Oscar, keeping in mind the end goal to stay away from rape, she guarantees.
A long time after the hotel “meeting,” Judd stated she saw Weinstein at a supper party. ABC writes about the experience:
Judd said he brought up “that little agreement we made”, and claimed he was “looking around for the material”. Then he looked at her and said, “you know, Ashley, I’m going to let you out of that little agreement that we made”.
Judd thought about the experience and her response: “Am I glad for that? I’m of two personalities: The part that disgraces myself says no,” she said. “The piece of me that comprehends the way disgrace works says, ‘That was completely splendid. Great job, kid. You left. Well done.’”
