But you do hear a million fanciful rumours all the time. And some turn out to be true and some – many – are just stories about this actress, or that actor.
The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved,” he added. Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that [his] life is so messed up.
There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.”
