“The shock made me cry” continued Beckinsale. “I tried to say ‘Harvey, the city is in flames, people are still searching for their relatives, none of us felt that the premiere would be appropriate and much less go out dressed as if it were a bachelor party. He said: ‘I don’t care, it’s my fucking premiere and if I want to see a vagina on the red carpet, that’s what I get’”.
She and her daughter went running away from there.
Beckinsale was also asserted that not all the abuse of Weinstein can be punished by the lawbut that happened a lot of things as well, to her and to many others, and that they are part of the techniques that the powerful producer of film used to intimidate and control everyone around her. “I was punished for that and in other cases in which I said no to him for years, insidiously and seemingly irreversible”.
