Ryan Gosling ‘Deeply Disappointed’ in Himself for ‘Being So Oblivious’ to Weinstein Allegations

Ryan Gosling voiced his support of the growing number of women who have come forward with their experiences of sexual assault and harassment against Harvey Weinstein.

The actor starred in the Weinstein-produced drama “All Good Things” in 2010.

“I want to add my voice of support for the women who have had the courage to speak out against Harvey Weinstein,” Gosling wrote on Twitter. “Like most people in Hollywood, I have worked with him and I’m deeply disappointed in myself for being so oblivious to these devastating experiences of sexual harassment and abuse. He is emblematic of a systemic problem. Men should stand with women and work together until there is real accountability and change.”

On Wednesday, Weinstein responded to most of Hollywood denouncing him in wake of the scandal.

“I don’t know what to say. With some [people I considered close friends], it saddens me,” he told Page Six TV. He added: “I am profoundly devastated. I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else.”

Weinstein was fired from his own studio, the Weinstein Company, following the Oct. 5 New York Times story detailing three decades of sexual harassment allegations from a number of women including Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd. Since, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne, and Kate Beckinsale have added to the growing list of women who have come forward with stories against Weinstein.
