There has been a lot of talk about the sexual abuse scandal that has been happening in Hollywood and, in particular, the amount of accusations that are being faced by huge Hollywood movie producer Harvey Weinstein. There have been a number of Hollywood stars who have come out to slam Harvey, but there is one Hollywood legend who has been particularly silent on the subject.
Hollywood superstar Meryl Streep has worked with Harvey Weinstein on a number of occasions over the years and she has not really said a lot about the situation. Now though, Meryl has opened up, admitting that she would much rather hear what the likes of Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump have to say about it all, since their opinions are so much more valuable.
Streep was asked to respond to people who wanted her to break her silence on the whole Harvey Wenstein accusations, when she said, "I don’t want to hear about the silence of me. I want to hear about the silence of Melania Trump I want to hear from her. She has so much that’s valuable to say. And so does Ivanka. I want her to speak now."
She added, "In terms of Harvey, I really didn’t know. I did think he was having girlfriends. But when I heard rumours about actresses, I thought that that was a way of denigrating the actress and her ability to get the job. That really raised my hackles. I didn’t know that he was in any way abusing people. He never asked me to a hotel room. I don’t know how his life was conducted without people intimately knowing about it."
It will be interesting to see if we do ever get to hear what Ivanka Trump and Melania Trump have to say about the sexual abuse scandal in Hollywood.
