Courtney Love Warns Actresses About Harvey Weinstein in 2005 Red Carpet Interview
Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has been at the center of headlines for the past week-plus after an in-depth piece was published detailing his alleged history of sexual harassment and assault with now over 30 women coming forward to call out his past actions. While more info continues to come out concerning who knew what, footage has surfaced of singer-actress Courtney Love offering some advice to young actresses about Weinstein during a red carpet interview circa 2005.
TMZ posted the video seen above of Love responding to a question from comedienne Natasha Leggero at a Comedy Central Roast asking if she had any advice to young women trying to make it in Hollywood, with Love initially debating whether or not to say her comments fearing legal retaliation, then frankly stating, "If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in the Four Seasons, don't go."
TMZ later updated their story with a tweet from Love, who revealed, "Although I wasn't one of his victims, I was eternally banned by CAA for speaking out against Harvey Weinstein."
In the wake of all the allegations against Weinstein, Hollywood's Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted on Saturday (Oct. 14) to expel him from their ranks in an emergency session vote. Weinstein was also fired earlier in the week by the Weinstein Company, the studio that he co-founded.
