Nope, not sorry! Kate Winslet didn't thank Harvey Weinstein in her 2009 Oscars speech for The Reader on objective.

When the case Harvey Weinstein has flared up to the big day last week, revealing the stories of many women who have been raped, assaulted or harassed by the producer, in hollywood, Kate Winslet has been one of the first celebrities to react to praise the courage of the victims. "If people aren't well-behaved, why would I thank him?" she told the Los Angeles Times in an interview published on Saturday (October 14).

She explained, 'I remember being told. I'm not going to do.' And it had nothing to do with the fact of not being grateful. Like I owe him everything.

No bars were holding #Kate Winslet back when she was asked about her working experience with #Harvey Weinstein in light of the scandal. Moreover, it is in one of the films being produced in 1994 by the company Miramax (a company Weinstein), heavenly Creatures, the lovely British has made his film debut at the age of 19 years.

Winslet was one of the first to condemn Weinstein after the explosive reports surfaced, which have now seen him expelled from the Oscars board with police now also investigating.


The actor said she had a hard relationship with the producer, who would often remind Winslet of his favours.

"He was always, always very, very, very unpleasant to deal with".

"The fact that I'm never going to have to deal with Harvey Weinstein again as long as I live is one of the best things that's ever happened and I'm sure the feeling is universal", she continued.

"He used to call my female agent a [vulgar name for a woman] every time he spoke to her on the telephone", she recounted. I always stood by everything I said.

The 42-year-old actress said she hopes that Weinstein is punished for his actions and that her comments and the accounts of other women who have come forward will inspired others to do the same. His behavior is without question disgraceful and appalling and very, very wrong.
