Meryl Streep on sexual misconduct: 'I don't want to hear about the silence of me'

  Meryl Streep on sexual misconduct: 'I don't want to hear about the silence of me' Meryl Streep has spoken out again about the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and the growing movement to combat sexual misconduct in Hollywood and beyond. Speaking to The New York Times, Streep recalled how the Weinstein news “underlined my own sense of cluelessness” and how she “really had to think” before she responded, even as people were calling on her to do so. “I found out about this on a Friday and went home deep into my own life,” she told the Times. And then somebody told me that on Morning Joe they were screaming that I haven’t responded yet. I don’t have a Twitter thing or – handle, whatever. And I don’t have Facebook. I really had to think. Because it really underlined my own sense of cluelessness, and also how evil, deeply evil, and duplicitous, a person he was, yet such a champion of really great work.” “You make movies. You think you know everything about everybody. So much gossip. You don’t know anything,” she added. “People are so inscrutable on a certain level. And it’s a shock. Some of my favorite people have been brought down by this, and he’s not one of them.” Streep, who worked with Weinstein on films like August: Osage County and The Iron Lady, released a statement on Oct. 9 — four days after the Times‘ first bombshell story about Weinstein was published — calling the allegations against him “inexcusable” and saying that she did not know about the alleged “inappropriate, coercive acts” he was accused of doing.

Rose McGowan Blasts 'Hollywood Fakery' Of Black-Dress Protest At Golden Globes

  Rose McGowan Blasts 'Hollywood Fakery' Of Black-Dress Protest At Golden Globes Actress Rose McGowan said Sunday that it was “Hollywood fakery” for actors to wear black to the Golden Globes as a way to protest sexual misconduct. McGowan, an actress and activist who has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her, criticized the awards show in an impassioned Twitter exchange with Asia Argento, another alleged Weinstein victim. When Argento pointed out that McGowan had spoken out about Weinstein and inspired others to step forward, the former “Charmed” star wrote in reply: “And not one of those fancy people wearing black to honor our rapes would have lifted a finger had it not been so.

She added that if Oprah were to run for president, she wouldn’t be against it, and joked that perhaps Hollywood should stage a White House takeover.

“Somebody from the stage [mentioned] Tom Hanks, and he seemed ready to go,” she said. “That would be a pretty good ticket. … You could just keep it in Hollywood, you know, you could have The Rock as the joint chief of staff, Harrison Ford running defense.”
