Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, who rejected alleged advances made by American film producer Harvey Weinstein, feels her action had hurt her career for decades.
The British actress, popularly known for her role as Cersei Lannister in the HBO series, has previously opened up about Weinstein’s two unwanted advances back in 2017. The two first met at The Brothers Grimm premiere at the Venice Film Festival in 2005.
Recently, the actress talked about the incident in an interview to The Sunday Times.
“After he was discovered to be a slime ball, on a grander scale than me just knowing it, I did start thinking, ‘Fuck, maybe because I didn’t sh*g him, that’s impacted a decade of my working life’, because I did two jobs for Miramax before those incidents, and after that there was nothing,” she said.
“At one point, Harvey asked me to take a walk down to the water, I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture, I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked. ‘I remember thinking, it’s got to be a joke, I said something like.. oh come on mate! It’d be like kissing my dad’,” Lena narrated the incident.
Lena, who has worked on two projects with Miramax, which is co founded by Harvey, was no longer offered any jobs by the company.
Meanwhile, the disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is facing sexual assault charges filed by multiple women in the US.
