Wait Until Trial to Judge Weinstein, Oliver Stone Said

SEOUL – Hollywood director Oliver Stone said on Friday he did not wish to denounce powerful American film producer Harvey Weinstein until a trial was held to prove the charges of sexual harassment against him.

Reports of sexual harassment complaints against the co-founder of Miramax and The Weinstein Company have come to light during the past week, following investigations by The New York Times and The New Yorker.

“I’m a believer that you wait until this thing gets to trial,” Stone said at a press conference held at the Busan International Film Festival, where he is presiding over the jury.

“I believe a man shouldn’t be condemned by a vigilante system. It’s not easy what he’s going through, either,” he added in statements reported by South Korean news agency Yonhap.

“During that period, he was a rival. I never did business with him and didn’t really know him. I’ve heard horror stories on everybody in the business, so I’m not going to comment on gossip,” explained the director of “JFK” and “Platoon.”

“I’ll wait and see, which is the right thing to do,” he concluded.

The scandal surrounding Weinstein continues to grow with an increasing list of actresses and models accusing him of sexual assault.

Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mira Sorvino, Ashley Judd, Lea Seydoux and Asia Argento are only some of the women who have launched allegations against the Hollywood producer, ranging from sexual abuse to rape.
