Harvey Weinstein reportedly Googles himself 'constantly' and still thinks he'll make a career comeback

The Week 1 month ago

Even ahead of his impending rape trial, disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein reportedly still expects to be "welcomed back" to his old life.

That's according to a new CNN report that cites those close to Weinstein two months before he's set to stand trial in New York after facing allegations of sexual abuse from more than 80 women. Weinstein, according to the report, is not only not "sorry" about his alleged sexual misconduct but is "combative, maintains he is innocent of any crime and is planning for a career comeback post-trial."

Weinstein, who reportedly spends much of his time alone in his apartment "constantly" Googling himself, appears to be "in denial" about his situation, the report also says, as evidenced by the fact that he fully intends to continue producing movies, and possibly set up a production company in Europe, if he's acquitted.

"He feels like he is owed an apology from Hollywood," a friend of Weinstein's told CNN. "I think there's a part of him that thinks he will come out on the other side of this and be welcomed back to some version of his old life." Another source said, "He seems more upset that he's been stripped of his power and less about trying to take this as an opportunity to become a changed man."

Weinstein recently made a rare public appearance at a New York event for actors, where several women confronted him. A comedian, Kelly Bachman, also called out Weinstein in her stand-up set, only for some in the crowd to boo her. "I'm not surprised that anyone would boo me for calling out a man accused of rape, because that response is so terrifyingly familiar to me and most survivors," she later wrote in a New York Times op-ed.

Weinstein's trial is set to begin on Jan. 6.
