Not thanking Weinstein was a deliberate act for Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet thanked 19 people by name when she won her Oscar for "The Reader", but Harvey Weinstein was left out on goal. Her first film was Heavenly Creatures, a Peter Jackson-directed drama that was distributed by Miramax, the pre-Weinstein Company banner that Harvey ran with his brother, Bob.

She explained, 'I remember being told. Kate told the Los Angeles Times in an interview, "I remember being told 'Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.' And I remember turning around and saying, 'No I won't.' And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. No, I won't", and it had nothing to do with him being ungrateful.

"We still had a full four days of shooting of very key scenes that for me - as a person playing that part - were absolutely crucial to the story and to Stephen Daldry, they were as well", Winslet says.

"But that's how he operated".

She then went on to detail on he was "bullying and nasty" business wise. She said when it came to making "The Reader", Weinstein was "very, very, very unpleasant to deal with" just on the business side of things.

How terrible. Not to mention, in addition to regularly calling her female agent a derogatory name, Weinstein also displayed "disgraceful behavior" during the making of The Reader.

Harvey Weinstein's membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was revoked over the weekend, following reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker detailing sexual harassment, assault and rape allegations spanning decades.

According to The LA Times, Winslet said the omission '...was deliberate.

And regardless of the legal ramifications, Winslet is glad to be done with the disgraced producer: "The fact that I'm never going to have to deal with Harvey Weinstein again as long as I live is one of the best things that's ever happened and I'm sure the feeling is universal".

That was the last time Winslet worked with Weinstein.

In my 20s, I was very forceful and I had a big voice and I would absolutely say things.

Fired from his own company, excluded from the Academy of the Oscars and banned from any profession, Harvey Weinstein is now the subject of two investigations in NY and London.
