Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson has claimed that the sexual abuse and harassment scandal surrounding disgraced Hollywood producer and Democratic Party donor Harvey Weinstein is just “the top of a very particular iceberg” in Hollywood’s overall culture.
“I didn’t know about these things, but they don’t surprise me at all, and they’re endemic to the system anyway,” claimed Thompson in an interview with BBC Newsnight.
When asked whether she thought there were other sexual predators like Weinstein in Hollywood at the moment, Thompson replied, “Of course.
Do they all have to be as bad as him to make it count?” Thompson asked.
Thompson was just the latest actress of dozens who have spoken out on the allegations surrounding Weinstein this week.
