Woman Who Applied to Be Harvey Weinstein's Nanny Describes Creepy Interview With Movie Mogul
A woman has come forward with details of an unsettling interview she had after applying to be Harvey Weinstein’s nanny.
“He opened the door wearing only boxer shorts and an undershirt," Sarah Anne Massie told Inside Edition. "I obviously thought it was strange.”
She says it happened at Weinstein’s mansion in Connecticut when she was just a teenager.
“I just tried to continue to conduct myself professionally and just look at his face and answer his questions,” she recalled. “All I wanted to do was to finish the interview and get out of there.”
But when the interview was over, she says the situation became even more bizarre.
“He pulled me in for a very tight, very long hug," she recalled. "Keep in mind he's still only wearing boxer shorts and an undershirt and during this hug he said 'I love you.’”
She didn't get the job.
Over the weekend, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted to expel Weinstein, the organization's second expulsion in its 89-year history.
HBO's John Oliver slammed the Academy on Sunday's Last Week Tonight.
Meanwhile, Kate Winslet, who won a Best Actress Oscar in 2009 for The Reader, has revealed that she did not thank Harvey Weinstein deliberately in her acceptance speech, despite showing gratitude to 19 others by name.
"He was bullying and nasty, very hard to deal with," she told the L.A. Times. "The fact that I’m never going to have to deal with Harvey Weinstein again is the best thing that ever happened.”
