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.

Jennifer Lawrence is no Harvey Weinstein apologist — and don't you forget it!!

The Hunger Games alum has become the latest A-lister to trash the disgraced Hollywood titan for suggesting she was fine with his conduct towards women.

As you may've seen, in an attempt to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed by many women who dealt with the controversial film mogul, Weinstein recently filed legal documents where he referenced J.Law as a character witness.

Specifically, Harvey claimed that the Oscar winner spoke "glowingly" about him and added that she said he had "only ever been nice to [her]." Like Meryl Streep, Miz Lawrence wants Weinstein to keep her name out of his mouth, especially when it comes to his misconduct scandal.

Although the Red Sparrow actress wasn't one of his victims, she is in no way defending his behavior. In a statement

Keep Meryl Streep's name out of your mouth, Harvey Weinstein!

The celebrated actress fired back at the disgraced producer after his lawyers used her name and positive experience with him in an attempt to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed against him in December.

Weinstein's lawyers filed the motion on Tuesday, arguing the class action status of the allegations was invalid because the claims would apply to "all women who ever met with Weinstein, regardless of whether they claimed to have suffered any identifiable harm," including the 21-time Oscar nominee.

Along with mentioning Streep by name, the motion used a recent statement, in which the actress said Weinstein "had always been respectful to her in their working relationship," to defend the accused rapist.

Naturally, the 68-year-old was outraged to discover her good name was being used in attempt to negate the experiences of over 80 women, and made it clear she finds the tactic "pathetic and exploitative."

She said in a statement on Wednesday:

Harvey Weinstein Uses Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lawrence, & Meryl Streep In Attempt To Dismiss That Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Him!

Not every woman in Hollywood is afraid of Harvey Weinstein.

The disgraced movie mogul wants the lawsuit filed against him dismissed, and he's using the few actresses he didn't allegedly assault to defend himself.

Back in December, we reported that six women filed a class action lawsuit likening the producer and his former companies to a racketeering enterprise that exposed the plaintiffs and "hundreds of other females like them" to sexual misconduct. The suit seeks retribution for the plaintiffs' loss of work opportunities.

But in his response, Harvey claims there's no way he could have used his power to ruin women's careers. Why? Because he helped Gwyneth Paltrow win an Oscar after she rebuffed his advances!

So, who will the legendary actress be playing on the HBO show already led by some of the fiercest females in the game?

Introducing Mary Louise Wright, the mother of Perry Wright (played by Alexander Skarsgård). Streep's character will enter the Monterey scene concerned for the well-being of her grandchildren following her son Perry's death. So this means a lot of scenes between The Post star and Nicole Kidman!!! We could cry.

We're hearing Streep will get upwards of $800,000 per episode.

Blessings.
