Anne Heche Says She Was Fired From A Movie For Refusing To Give Harvey Weinstein Oral Sex!

no title

Anne Heche is the latest actress to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

On Tuesday, the Six Days, Seven Knights actress appeared on the Allegedly podcast where she says she was fired from a Miramax movie after she refused to perform oral sex on the producer.

While it is unclear which film she is referring to, the 48-year-old last acted in the company’s 2001 feature Prozac Nation.

When asked why some alleged victims didn’t come forward sooner, Ellen DeGeneres‘ ex responded:

“First of all, you were threatened the second you walk out the door. I personally did not suck Harvey’s dick, although he showed it to me and I got out of the room before there was any physical contact… The fact is, I was fired from a job I had been hired for in Miramax. 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 thespian also accuses the disgraced exec of preying on young, “very vulnerable” girls who “come from hurt backgrounds.”

“You’re talking about girls, young actresses are very vulnerable. A lot of us come from hurt backgrounds. What happens when you come from a broken place, you don’t have any guidance, you don’t have support, a parent you can go to. And you certainly don’t want to go to Harvey’s partner and say this happened. You come to LA, you’re alone, you don’t have friends that you are being able to talk to and that’s what he takes advantage of, that isolated, vulnerable girl… That’s why every one of us was 19, 20, 21 or 22. He didn’t go after the 40 year old woman. He hits on me when I’m 19, 20, 21, 22, vulnerable, scared, frightened.”

However, Heche credits her dysfunctional childhood with giving her the courage to walk away from Weinstein’s alleged attack.

“If I wasn’t sexually abused as a child, I don’t know if I would have had the strength to stand up to Harvey and many others.”

Luckily, she says “there is no bigger monster” in Hollywood than Weinstein, and “it’s great that he’s being taken down.”

We echo Anne’s words, and we hope significant change will come from these reports.
