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.

But now that Hollywood is undergoing a sprawling and fearsome reckoning, all three women are making career comebacks , landing plum roles in Like Sorvino, Rose McGowan has said that she believes Weinstein , and Hollywood at large, blacklisted her after the producer allegedly raped her.

For the last few years, Sciorra has landed guest spots on numerous TV shows, such as Bull,The Good Wife, and CSI; the GLOW role could mark her splashiest part since her Emmy-nominated turn on The Sopranos in the early aughts.

Back in October, Sciorra was one of the first actresses to share a graphic account of her alleged experience with Weinstein, claiming that the producer violently raped her in the 1990s and continued to sexually harass her for the next few years. Her career also suffered as a result, she claimed. “From 1992, I didn’t work again until 1995,” she told The New Yorker. “I just kept getting this pushback of ‘We heard you were difficult; we heard this or that.’ I think that that was the Harvey machine.”

Weinstein’s spokesperson Sallie Hofmeister told The New Yorker that he “unequivocally denies” the allegations.

Earlier in January, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Mira Sorvino would be doing a guest role on Modern Family, playing Nicole Rosemary Page, a woman who “runs a GOOP–esque lifestyles brand called NERP.” GOOP, coincidentally, is run by Gwyneth Paltrow, who also spoke out about Harvey Weinstein last October. Sorvino also stepped forward that month, alleging that Weinstein had sexually harassed her and tried to pressure her into a physical relationship. After she rebuffed him, Sorvino said, Weinstein blacklisted her. “There may have been other factors, but I definitely felt iced out and that my rejection of Harvey had something to do with it,” she told The New Yorker.

That allegation has since been backed up by filmmakers like Peter Jackson, who claimed that Miramax urged him not to hire Sorvino or Ashley Judd, another actress who later claimed that Weinstein had sexually harassed her.

“I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs. This was probably in 1998,” he said in a recent interview. When Sorvino saw Jackson’s comments, she tweeted that she “burst out crying.”

“There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure,” she wrote.

A spokesperson for Weinstein later denied that the producer blacklisted Sorvino. Jackson fired back with a statement saying that aspects of Weinstein’s denial were “insincere.” Director Terry Zwigoff also said in December that the Weinsteins had discouraged him from casting Sorvino in his 2003 comedy, Bad Santa. A representative for Weinstein told Deadline that the producer “denies speaking with Terry regarding casting.”

Like Sorvino, Rose McGowan has said that she believes Weinstein, and Hollywood at large, blacklisted her after the producer allegedly raped her. She has since become one of Weinstein’s most vocal critics after the allegations against him exploded in October, which has given McGowan an enormous variety of coverage. She was featured in Time’s “Person of the Year” issue and has since landed a docu-series at E!
