Actor Nathan Lane breaks silence, tells how Weinstein threatened him at Hillary Clinton’s birthday party

Actor Nathan Lane revealed on Saturday that director Harvey Weinstein’s penchant for employing intimidation tactics didn’t end with women.

The award-winning actor spoke about an incident that occurred at Hillary Clinton’s 53rd birthday party in New York in the year 2000 when Weinstein flung Lane against a wall, Page Six reported.

The party was given by Weinstein, who has been a longtime supporter of the Clintons, both financially and otherwise, and Lane was the event’s emcee.

“This is my f–king show, we don’t need you,” Lane remembered Weinstein saying to him, when he spoke in an interview at the New Yorker Festival.


The director was angry about a joke Lane told about former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s combover, according to Lane.

“You can’t hurt me, I don’t have a film career,” Lane said he replied.

Not entirely accurate as Lane has had roles in movies like “The Birdcage,” “The Lion King” and “The Producers.”

But it does ring true of Weinstein, who is known around Hollywood and elsewhere as being a world-class jerk and a bully.

When the controversial director was portrayed as an out of control, obnoxious character, named Harvey Weingard, on the hit HBO show “Entourage” he told one of its stars, Kevin Connolly, to tell producers “they’re dead” if they ever mention him again.

Despite her close ties to Weinstein, who was outed by the New York Times last week for decades of sexual harassment against women, Hillary Clinton, who based the majority of her campaign on fighting for women, has not made a statement about her long time friend.
