Meryl Streep comes out against Weinstein, but ‘clarifies misreporting’ on the man she called ‘God’

Meryl Streep became one of the only Hollywood heavyweights to speak out against Harvey Weinstein on Monday, days after he was outed as a sexual predator.

“The disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed, and those whose good and worthy causes he supported,” the Academy Award winning actress said in a statement. “The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes.”

Despite many saying Weinstein’s sexual harassment of women was one of Hollywood’s open secrets, Streep claimed it was not as well-known as the allegations suggest.

“One thing can be clarified. Not everybody knew,” Streep said. “Harvey supported the work fiercely, was exasperating but respectful with me in our working relationship, and with many others with whom he worked professionally.”

“The behavior is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar,” she added. “Each brave voice that is raised, heard and credited by our watchdog media will ultimately change the game.”

Streep worked with Weinstein on movies like “The Iron Lady” and “August: Osage County.”

One of Weinstein’s alleged victims, actress Rose McGowan, has been particularly vocal about the lack of support she has gotten from Hollywood, including from her former “Charmed” costar Alyssa Milano.
