The president said he has known Weinstein a long time, adding: "I'm not at all surprised to see it".
The story included an account from actress Ashley Judd who said Weinstein once invited her up to his hotel room while he was wearing only a bathrobe and asked her to watch him shower.
It is likely that this is the last we'll hear about his thoughts on the issue considering his Access Hollywood "locker room talk" where he basically said that if you're famous you can do anything you want.
Bloom has been under heavy scrutiny since deciding to represent a man accused of sexual harassment. when she nearly always represents victims.
We saw Lisa Friday and asked her if she felt working with Weinstein was a conflict of interest, and she said no. because of the way he has responded to his allegations. "Georgina will be kicking my ass to be a better human being and to apologise to people for my bad behaviour, to say I'm sorry, and to absolutely mean it". The success of a possible master plan has yet to come to fruition, as the New York Times reported yesterday that a third of the board has resigned.
"What I am saying is that I bear responsibility for my actions, but the reason I am suing is because of the Times' inability to be honest with me, and their reckless reporting", Weinstein told the New York Post.
The latest resignations also come after a new report surfaced late Friday in the Huffington Post claiming that Weinstein had made unwanted sexual advances toward a TV journalist, Lauren Sivan, a decade ago in NY, including cornering Sivan at a restaurant and masturbating in front of her.
On Friday, another woman stepped forward to accuse Weinstein of misconduct.
She told the outlet Weinstein answered with, "Well, can you just stand there and shut up".
Sivan claims Weinstein took her to the restaurant's kitchen, where the Hollywood producer and studio co-chairman proceeded to dismiss two staffers and attempted to kiss her, causing her to pull away and tell him she was in a relationship.
She admitted that some of Weinstein's behavior was "gross", but argued that "his biggest problem is anger", which she says he's been in therapy for for a decade.
The report also stated that Weinstein had reached at least eight settlements with women who had claims against him.
Representatives for Weinstein and The Weinstein Co. have not responded to requests for comment.
