a Long time, 66-year-old John Malkovich kept himself aloof from the movement #MeToo and the Hollywood witch hunt that started after the first charge producer Harvey Weinstein in the harassment. But recently this topic caught him in a theatre production of the play by David Mamet’s “Bitter’s wheat” — the actor played a character charged with Weinstein. In a recent interview with The Guardian Malkovich spoke about the convicted to 23 years in prison in Weinstein and remembered that once he was faced with harassment.
I was shocked that he (Harvey Weinstein. — Approx. ed.) actually went to trial. I don’t know anyone who would believe that he is going to jail… It’s awful, if someone’s job depends on whether you take the sex for her or no, said Malkovich.
the actor has never been accused of inappropriate behaviour towards colleagues. But on the question of whether he faced harassment, John answered in the affirmative.
When I was young we used to have in the theatre Department was the Professor who gave me unwanted attention. I was 19 years old and he was 50. I just told him I do not approve of such, and everything stopped. The situation of Weinstein is quite different. It was a bargain. It’s terrible for women and for the working principles said the actor.
