Ryan Gosling Speaks Out on Harvey Weinstein Scandal: ‘I’m Deeply Disappointed in Myself’

”He is emblematic of a systemic problem,“ the ”Blade Runner 2049“ star says

Ryan Gosling has added his voice to the chorus of Hollywood stars who have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein in the wake of the movie mogul’s sexual assault scandal.

“Like most people in Hollywood, I have worked with him and I’m deeply disappointed in myself for being so oblivious to these devastating experiences of sexual harassment and abuse,” Gosling wrote in a statement shared to Twitter.

Gosling starred in and executive produced 2010’s “Blue Valentine,” which was distributed by The Weinstein Company. Weinstein also produced the Gosling-led “All Good Things” in 2010.

“He is emblematic of a systemic problem,” the “Blade Runner 2049” star continued. “Men should stand with women and work together until there is real accountability and change.”

Last week, The New York Times published a report detailing three decades of sexual misconduct, including accusations that Weinstein propositioned actresses and harassed female employees. A number of other women have since come forward to accuse Weinstein of harassment or assault, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Kate Beckinsale and Cara Delevingne.

A bombshell New Yorker report on Tuesday expanded the scope of the allegations about Weinstein’s behavior and featured the accounts of 13 women, three of whom said they were raped by the high-powered producer.

Dozens of stars and former collaborators have publicly condemned Weinstein in the wake of the allegations, including George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Judi Dench, Glenn Close, Rose McGowan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Ruffalo and Nicole Kidman.
