Actress Eva Green came forward to detail her own personal encounter with Harvey Weinstein, her mother recapped the experience on a French radio interview Friday.
After the interview, Green, 37, detailed when the Oscar-winning producer made inappropriate sexual advances on her during a business meeting in Paris, reported Variety on Saturday.
“I wish to address comments made by my mother in a recent interview regarding Harvey Weinstein,” Green said in a statement to Variety. “I met him for a business meeting in Paris where he behaved inappropriately and I had to push him off. I got away without it going further, but the experience left me shocked and disgusted.”
Weinstein allegedly lured Green back to his hotel room pretending it was for a professional meeting, said Jobert, adding that Weinstein threatened to destroy her daughter’s career after escaping the unwanted sexual act, reported the Daily Mail.
“He operated with her the exact same way he acted with all the others, under the pretext of a professional meeting, of a script that had to get to her with a nice part into the bargain,” said Jobert.
“I have not discussed this before because I wanted to maintain my privacy, but I understand it is important to do so as I hear about other women’s experiences,” added Green.
