Jennifer Lawrence On Weinstein: 'We All Knew He Was A Dog'

Jennifer Lawrence Tells Oprah She Wants to Form a Commission Against Sexual Abuse in Hollywoodfacebook dialogPinterest

At least, that's according to a Hollywood executive, who presented the 27 year old with an award named after her at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Power 100 Women in Entertainment breakfast this week.

Lawrence, a board member for the non-profit organization Represent.Us, says she wants to embark on high school and college campus tours throughout the country: "I want to travel around to the areas I'm from so that people realize corruption is a completely nonpartisan issue".

"I've got a pretty good speech", Lawrence said, adding with a laugh that "it ends with a martini to the face".

Lansig then said that Lawrence then told her, "I have a secret. She turned to me and she said, 'I know Michael is anxious about me, and I know he wanted you to talk to me but please don't worry about me'".

"As I watched her interact with the other guests, I saw a highly confident woman and I really didn't think she needed any advice from anyone", Lansing continued.

However J.Law is ready to move on, also opening up about her upcoming project Red Sparrow, and how she approached the overtly sexual role after a series of nude photos of her were leaked in 2014 when her iCloud account was hacked. It's taking somebody's intellectual property but also my body. "He had only ever been nice to me - except for the moments that he wasn't, and then I called him an a***** a class="key_underline" href="https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/topic/Kate-Beckinsale" *Kate Beckinsale, Cara Delevingne, Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwyneth Paltrow. It was violating on a sexual level". "And that's why it's so important to talk about abuse, all of the different forms of abuse, because he didn't lay a finger on her, and I felt chilled to my bones". "He was paternal to me".

Jennifer Lawrence was unaware of Harvey Weinstein's behavior behind closed doors. "I didn't know that he was a rapist".

Speaking about the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, Lawrence said she has known the producer since she was 20, but had not had a negative experience with him.

"As you may already know, The New York Times published their devastating report on Harvey Weinstein over two months ago, and since then, many women have come forward with their own stories under the hashtag-umbrella of "#MeToo".
