Harvey Weinstein is no stranger to violence on film since he's produced all of Quentin Tarantino's movies, but after the tragic Dark Knight Rises shooting, the movie mogul is the first to admit it's time to talk about it.
While speaking with sources about a host of issues, Weinstein admitted that he wrestles with the use of violence in productions he is involved with, saying:

Anna Wintour is really serious about getting President Barack Obama reelected!
The First Lady of Vogue will be hosting another fundraiser, this time with producer Harvey Weinstein.
Last year, the duo held a benefit dinner at Weinstein and Georgina Chapman’s townhouse, but there’s no word on where it will be held this year.
No date has been set, but we do know that it will cost $35,800 for a ticket!
Earlier this summer, Wintour co-hosted a Presidential benefit dinner at Sarah Jessica Parker’s NYC home.
Hopefully they'll give away a couple of tickets to the plebs like last time!

Remember the time Alec Baldwin called one of the most powerful people in Hollywood “a f*cking douchebag”??
He’s calling take backsies!!
When Harvey Weinstein refused to appear in Alec’s Cannes documentary last week, the star of 30 Rock became vocally irate at the Calvin Klein party they were both attending!
After Alec sobered up, he probably realized it wasn’t a great idea to publicly humiliate one of the few industry titans who could squash his career like an overripe tomato.
Thursday, Alec stepped down as auction leader of a Weinstein hosted benefit for AIDS research so as not distract from the charitable cause.
He attended as a guest and later sent this note to Harvey:

Alec Baldwin doesn't hold back!
The actor is FURIOUS at Hollywood heavyweight Harvey Weinstein because he refused to participate in a documentary about film financing that he's currently shooting at the Cannes Film Festival.
Alec arrived at the Calvin Klein IFP party on May 17 with fiancée Hilaria Thomas and immediately started bashing the Oscar-winning producer. He reportedly yelled out:

This is the last type of film we'd expect to receive a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival, but now that it has, it sounds like we may have our first huge break-out hit of the season!
The Sapphires tells the story of four Aboriginal sisters and cousins who form an all-girl singing group and wind up leaving the Australian outback to entertain the troops in Vietnam in 1968, and apparently, when it was screened out of competition over the weekend, the comedy received such a warm reception that even producer Harvey Weinstein is predicting that it's going to be a full-on smash!

For lots of $$$!!
If you are super-rich and dream of unwarranted fame then you're in luck!
For this year's amfAR Cinema Against AIDS gala, Chanel fashion God Monsieur Karl Lagerfeld and super-producer Harvey Weinstein have masterminded a rather strange auction item…
The duo will transform the highest bidder into an instant celeb by featuring them in a short film styled/directed by Unkle Karl and produced by Weinstein!
So it is true! Anyone with enough cash money can become famous with the right minds behind them, regardless of actual talent!
