Harvey Weinstein admits he offered acting jobs for sex

Harvey Weinstein

"You were born rich and privileged and you were handsome".

As if this was not enough, he has now given an interview to The Spectator magazine in which he admits he exchanged sex for work in his movies, but denies ever having raped anyone.

During a talk with The Spectator, Mr. Weinstein admitted to offering young women roles for sex, a practice he described as ubiquitous in Hollywood and in the entertainment industry.

Further in the interview, Harvey stands by his previous claims that he has never "forced himself on "a single woman" but has used his money and power to try and score the ladies". "You got lotsa girls, no girl looked at me until I made it big in Hollywood".

Trump, meanwhile, has been criticized for being reluctant to speak publicly about Russian interference into the campaign. The announcement comes as Trump prepares to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit in Helsinki next week.

Additionally, Weinstein, while sitting with his attorney, Ben Brafman, stated Asia and Rose McGowan were lying when they claimed Asia and the Parts Unknown star, Anthony, had an open relationship.

"It was obviously not true, says Harvey, but dead men tell no tales", Taki wrote in his column. Taki's statement is a retraction, saying, "I believe that I may have misrepresented Harvey Weinstein's conversation with me".

Asia Argento, left, accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, a claim her late boyfriend, Anthony Bourdain, supported before his death earlier this year.

The interview was published just days after the former Weinstein & Co. boss pleaded not guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault. In addition, he could potentially face life in prison for separate sex crime charges. His lawyer has challenged the credibility of his alleged victims and says his client is confident he is going to clear his name.
