Jennifer Lawrence says that Weinstein's audio tape made her feel "sick in my bones"

In an interview published on Wednesday with Oprah Winfrey for The Hollywood Reporter & # 39; s 2017 Women in Entertainment Power 100, Jennifer Lawrence and the TV icon discussed Weinstein, who served as a executive producer in the film that drove her to an Oscar: 2012 Silver Linings Playbook co-starring Bradley Cooper.

The actress said that because of her mostly positive experience with Weinstein, she had needed time to process news of the allegations.

"Speaking for myself, I knew him since he was 20 years old, and he had only been nice to me, except for the moments when he was not, and then I called him (expletive), and we went ahead," he said. Winfrey. "He was fatherly to me, he needed a moment to process everything because he thought he knew this guy, and then they accused him of rape."

Lawrence added: "We all knew he was a dog," and he also describes him as "a brute, a tough guy to negotiate with," but he denied knowing the allegations of sexual assault.

"And it is so widespread, the abuse, of so many different people (directors, producers) that I think everyone needed (to process it)," he says. "Everyone needs to deal with this in their own way, everyone should be healed."

Lawrence said she was shaken to the heart by an audio recording of Weinstein pressing the model Ambra Battilana Gutiérrez and apparently admitting to having groped her.

"Being able to listen when the woman wore the microphone and Harvey told her to watch him take a shower: I felt sick in my bones for a whole day," says the mother actress. "And that's why it's so important to talk about the abuse, all the different forms of abuse, because he did not put a finger on it, and I felt chilled to the bone."

When asked what would be the best As a result of all the accusers introducing themselves, the equal wage advocate suggested "social change". "Men need more social awareness," he told Winfrey. "But this is reduced to equality, and until all women in all jobs receive the same salary for the same amount of work, how are we going to think we are the same?" she says. "As long as there is a group of humans that is invalidating another, there will be abuse, (and) why will we be considered the same?"
