Anne Heche Suggests Harvey Weinstein Fired Her From Miramax Film After She Refused Sexual Contact

“I personally did not suck Harvey’s d—, although he showed it to me, and I got out of the room before there was any physical contact,” says actress

Actress Anne Heche suggested Harvey Weinstein fired her from a Miramax film after she refused sexual contact from the disgraced mogul.

In an interview with the podcast Allegedly With Theo Von & Matthew Cole Weiss, Heche said, “I personally did not suck Harvey’s d—, although he showed it to me, and I got out of the room before there was any physical contact.”

She added: “The fact is, I was fired from a job that I had been hired for in Miramax.”

Heche didn’t specify which Miramax film it was, but said that she was afraid of speaking up at the time, fearing Weinstein’s retaliation. “The repercussions of standing up for yourself were as deep and targeted as some of the scars of the women who actually got more physically, unfortunately, involved. The efforts he made to have people followed, to have spies, to have threats, he fired people. You’re talking about girls; young actresses are very vulnerable… You were threatened the second you walk out the door.”

Weinstein has denied the allegations made by Heche through a spokesperson in a statement to the Wrap. “While Ms. Heche and Mr. Weinstein were friendly, he denies these claims as nothing more than an attempt to pile on to the current conversation. Mr. Weinstein denies Ms. Heche’s allegations and has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. “
