Harvey Weinstein Denies Saying He Traded Acting Jobs for Sex

"Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex", the disgraced movie mogul told the Spectator in an interview published Friday.

Weinstein was quoted by Taki Theodoracopulos, a columnist for the Spectator, as saying "Yes, I did offer them acting jobs in exchange for sex, but so did and still does everyone". However, while he admitted to the transgression, Mr. Weinstein said he never forced himself on anyone, ever. Weinstein said to Taki, the reporter for the publication, that Taki was born rich, privileged, and handsome. "You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood".

The article says Weinstein's lawyer, Ben Brafman, was present during the interview. Brafman says, "Harvey and Taki [the reporter] did not discuss the case, nor would I allow him to".

He pointed to McGowan insisting Argento and her tragic boyfriend, the late Anthony Bourdain, had an open relationship. Another woman, who hasn't been identified publicly yet, stated Harvey raped her after cornering her in a hotel room.

The interview comes almost two months after Weinstein entered a not guilty plea at a NY courthouse on June 5, when he was arraigned on rape and criminal sex act charges.

Dozens more women have accused him of sexual misconduct ranging from harassment to assault. In addition, he could potentially face life in prison for separate sex crime charges.

"Mr. Weinstein maintains that all of these allegations are false and he expects to be fully vindicated", Brafman said in a statement last week.
