Harvey Weinstein Actually Apologizes To Jennifer Lawrence & Meryl Streep!

Well, at least that's something Harvey Weinstein is willing to apologize for.

In case you didn't hear, the disgraced movie mogul's latest defense was to point out some A-list stars he *didn't* sexually assault or harass. Like that proves something.

As you might imagine, Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence did not appreciate having their names used in this way and immediately stood up for the rights of his accusers.

Now Harvey has apologized to the stars in a statement from his rep to The Hollywood Reporter, saying:

"Mr. Weinstein acknowledges the valuable input both Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence have contributed to this conversation and apologizes. Moving forward, Mr. Weinstein has advised his counsel to not include specific names of former associates; and to avoid whenever possible, even if they are in the public record.

Mr. Weinstein has been informed that his civil counsel responded in court to a class action lawsuit which improperly sought to include all actresses who had previously worked with Mr. Weinstein, even where those actresses have made no claim of wrongdoing. Even though Mr. Weinstein has worked with hundreds of actresses and actors who had only professional and mutually respectful experiences with him, Mr. Weinstein has directed in the future that no specific names be used by his counsel, even where those actors have made previous public statements about him."

Is it just us or is he still saying he's planning on using the fact he didn't sexually abuse everyone as evidence he didn't sexually abuse anyone?

Thankfully that defense is insane or every criminal who ever lived could use it:

"As the court can see, I'm not murdering anyone now."

Eesh.
