Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein says he’s saddened that Hollywood has shunned him and “devastated” by his wife Georgina Chapman leaving him in the wake of extensive revelations of alleged sexual assault.
“I don’t know what to say. With some [people I considered close friends], it saddens me,” he told Page Six TV on Wednesday when asked how he feels about his Hollywood and Washington D.C. friends denouncing him.
Weinstein was fired Sunday in the wake of the Oct. 5 New York Times story detailing sexual harassment allegations from several women, including Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan. The New York Times report was followed Tuesday by another explosive story in the New Yorker with accusers including Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino, and Rosanna Arquette. Chapman later announced that she would be leaving her husband.
“I am profoundly devastated,” he told the show. “I have lost my wife and kids, whom I love more than anything else.”
