Jennifer Lawrence Deeply Disturbed By Harvey Weinstein Reports

Add Jennifer Lawrence to the growing list of Hollywood celebrities who have condemned former studio honcho Harvey Weinstein amid Weinstein's growing sexual harassment scandal.

"I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein's behavior," Lawrence said in a statement to Variety published late Monday, October 9, 2017. "I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting."

"My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions," she added. "And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward."

Lawrence worked with Weinstein on the 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook, for which she received a Best Actress Oscar.

Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Company on Sunday, October 8, 2017, just days after The New York Times published a shocking exposé detailing years of alleged sexual abuse against multiple actresses in Hollywood. Included on that list: Ashley Judd, who alleged that Weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room while she was filming the movie Kiss the Girls (1997).

In wake of the scandal, other actors like Lawrence have spoken out against Weinstein, including Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and, most recently, George Clooney, who called his actions "indefensible."
