Jennifer Lawrence Has Revealed That She 'Wanted To Kill' Harvey Weinstein When Allegations Towards Him Came To Light

The actress speaks out one more against her former producer.


Jennifer Lawrence, who accidentally revealed last week that she is working on a series project with ex E! host Catt Sadler, has come out once more against her former producer Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein has denied the multiple accusations of sexual harassment, abuse and misconduct against him. Most recently, he released a statement (through his lawyers) which named both Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep as evidence of his positive working relationships with women.


Both Streep and Lawrence subsequently gave statements distancing themselves from the Hollywood executive, demanding their names be removed from Harvey Weinstein's legal team's defence tactic.

In response, Weinstein indirectly apologised to the two women, neither of whom have accused him of sexual misconduct.

'Mr. Weinstein acknowledges the valuable input both Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence have contributed to this conversation and apologises. Moving forward, Mr. Weinstein has advised his counsel to not include specific names of former associates; and to avoid whenever possible, even if they are in the public record.'

However, this has not appeared to dampen the 27-year-old's anger towards the producer, whose company recently filed for bankruptcy.

On Sunday night on 60 Minutes, Lawrence reiterated her disdain towards the 64-year-old. She told CBS's Bill Whitaker, 'What he did is criminal and deplorable. And when it came out and I heard about it, I wanted to kill him. The way that he destroyed so many women's lives. I want to see him in jail.'

Lawrence's opinion echoes the sentiment of other stars who have not directly accused him, such as Lupita Nyong'o, Uma Thurman, and Sharon Stone, who told the Mail on Sunday last month, 'I hope he goes to jail.'
