Jennifer Lawrence Condemns Harvey Weinstein: ‘My Heart Goes Out To All of the Women’

Jennifer Lawrence said she never witnessed any inappropriate behavior from Harvey Weinstein, but she nevertheless joined the chorus of actresses who spoke out on Monday about the mogul’s alleged sexual harassment of multiple women over three decades.

“I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior,” Lawrence said in a statement to Variety. “I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting.”

She added, “My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward.”

Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Glenn Close all voiced their disapproval on Monday of Weinstein’s alleged conduct.

Lawrence won an Oscar in 2013 for “Silver Linings Playbook,” which was produced by Weinstein.

On Sunday, the board of the indie studio that Weinstein co-founded voted to terminate him with cause. He’s denied parts of a bombshell report published in the New York Times last week that detailed his alleged harassment towards women, including actresses Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan.
