Actor Sandra Bullock is one of the most recognised actors of Hollywood who work experience stretches over three decades. The actor recently opened up about the Harvey Weinstein scandal that shook the entire world and revealed that “she was afraid of the Hollywood mogul”.
In an interview to The Sunday Times, the Oscar winning actor said she heard about the disgraced producer and never wanted to work with him because of the allegations made against him.
“I was afraid of him, I wasn’t asked to be in that world. I learnt early on to shut things off so those things didn’t come my way. I only heard what Harvey wanted people to hear, and that made me so f–king angry. People would say, ‘Well, you know how she got that role? She f–ked Harvey.’ I would say, ‘Shut the f–k up. You don’t know that.’ Then, later, to find out that woman was brutally attacked…They didn’t sleep with Harvey. Harvey wanted you to think that,” Bullock revealed in the interview.
The Gravity actor has never faced any kind of situation at the hands of Weinstein. However, she did face harassment in her initial days in the industry with a person of authority she chose not to reveal.
“It was a lesson. After that, I tended to remove anything that could be misconstrued as sexual. I locked it down,” Bullock said.
On the contrary, Weinstein has denied all sexual allegations made by several women (actors, crew members and production assistants) and doesn’t even recall meeting most of the women privately.
