Lauren Hutton Bears Witness to Harvey Weinstein’s Infamous Bathrobe Antics
In a new interview, the veteran model-turned-actress recalls the bizarre incident when she got called for a meeting with the disgraced producer, only to find him in a dirty white bathrobe.
AceShowbiz -Veteran model Lauren Hutton witnessed Harvey Weinstein’s infamous bathrobe antics, but made it clear to the disgraced mogul she was not to be messed with.
Several women have accused the film producer of assaulting them while dressed in a bathrobe during private meetings, often in a hotel suite, but Lauren tells People he thought about trying it once with her in an office.
The 75-year-old says, “You could spot across the street that he was swine… Harvey wanted to see me about some project and I asked if there was a script they wanted me to look at. There wasn’t.”
“I’m waiting and suddenly a side door opens and there’s Harvey in a dirty white bathrobe. He looked out and then shut the door. I don’t think it occurred to me that he would actually hit on me. It was too far out and first of all, I could take him. I’d whack him. Maybe he understood when he took a look.”
“He looked out, sort of stunned. It was all so bizarre and then it was over. I never saw him again. The bathrobe was enough for me.”
Hutton, who has also enjoyed success as an actress, admits she’s had her fair share of “dolts and idiots” during her time in the spotlight, but her experiences as a cocktail waitress in New Orleans, Louisiana prepared her for the worst.
“I was armed by fending off people that got drunk in a nightclub,” she smiles.
