‘I found that heartbreaking’: Jessica Chastain reveals a ‘well-known actor’ told her to ‘CALM DOWN’ when she first spoke out about run-in with disgraced Harvey Weinstein
Jessica Chastain has claimed she was told to ‘calm down’ by a ‘well-known’ actor after she spoke out about the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
The 40-year-old actress appeared on Friday night’s episode of Graham Norton during which she discussed the ‘heartbreaking’ exchange that arose last month when she said she herself had a run-in with the disgraced producer.
In the midst of the shocking scandal that shook Hollywood to its core, like many actresses, Jessica came forward while utilising Twitter as a platform to speak out yet she was soon stunned by the response from a fellow acting heavyweight.
Weinstein’s accusations of sexual abuse have led to a plethora of high-profile men in the entertainment industry facing similar allegations after decades of silence.
Jessica weighed in last month when she claimed that she herself had a run-in with the disgraced producer after he attempted to get her to ‘pimp out’ her best friend.
As she hit out at the scenario, she used Twitter to respond to a number of issues however she admitted one star took issue with her vocalisation.
Speaking of the reported situation, she said: ‘I was tweeting a lot at the time and actually got an email from a well-known actor that said; “Calm down”.
