That was the response that the Hollywood producer gave to a journalist who asked about her alleged sexual harassment of the actress.
The criminal court in New York on Tuesday revealed about 1,000 pages of documents linked to the Harvey Weinstein case, found guilty of rape and sexual assault. Among those papers came an email from the former US producer, in which he wrote: “Jen Aniston should be killed”, inform Variety
That was his response to a National Enquirer journalist, who contacted one of his representatives, Sallie Hofmeister, in October 2017, looking for the film producer’s version of a story he was working on. “National Enquirer wants to publish a story about reports that Jennifer Aniston was sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein,” the reporter said in the email.
Aniston’s representative, Stephen Huvane, denied the accusations: “National Enquirer’s claims are false. Jennifer has not been harassed or assaulted by Harvey,” Variety said Tuesday.
Even when the actress’s publicist pointed out that her client had not been harassed by the producer, Aniston herself told in a interview for Variety, in 2019, that Harvey, while not sexually assaulting her, had questionable behaviors with her. During a dinner for the premiere of the movie ‘Derailed’, 2005, when the actress was sitting next to Clive Owen – also the protagonist and also producer of the film, as well as a friend -, Weinstein made him get up so he could sit next to him from the star of the series ‘Friends’. “With that dirty behavior, he only showed his high level of stupidity,” Jennifer Aniston said.
Last month, Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of two charges, one of them for rape, in an open trial before the New York Supreme Court (USA). Thus, the jury in charge of the case considers a first-degree criminal sexual act against production assistant Mimi Haleyi, occurred in 2006, when she was forced to practice oral sex, and a third-degree rape (which does not imply use of force ) against actress Jessica Mann, perpetrated at a New York hotel in 2013.
