Cameron Said He Almost Beat Up Weinstein

Jim Cameron has said that he almost beat up Harvey Weinstein almost 20 years ago, or at least almost hit him with his award.

Asked what provoked the almost-fight, James recounted: ‘It’s kind of a long story, but it has to do with Guillermo Del Toro and how badly he was dealt with by Miramax on Mimic.’

‘Harvey came up glad-handing me, talking about how great they were for the artist,’ James explained.

But James wasn’t having it, remembering: ‘…I just read him chapter and verse about how great I thought he was for the artist based on my friend’s experience, and that led to an altercation.’

Del Toro has previously said working with Weinstein and Miramax left a bad taste in his mouth, back during the production of his first English-language feature Mimic.

‘It was happening on the main floor at the [theater]… And the music had started to play to get back in our seats.

‘The people around us were saying, “Not here! Not here!” Like it was OK to fight in the parking lot, you know, but it was not OK when the music was playing, and they were about to go live.’

    I like “Mimic” and for fans of the movie a reminder for those of you that may not know, there’s actually a director’s cut available of the picture.

    “Harvey Weinstein raped me but.. he told me he was going to get me a movie to star in, so..”
    Gotta love Hollywood

    Harvey Weinstein should just move to France, make movies there and in three to four years he’ll get another Oscar and Meryl Streep and others will give him a standing ovation at the Academy Awards.

    I’m surprised James Cameron talked about something besides how great “Terminator: Genisys” was, being a vegetarian and “Avatar” 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

      The only guy I trust about pwning weinstein physically is Depardieu, who is a former thug.But that weakling Cameron is not going to convince me.

        A bodyslam by Depardieu must hurt like a mothafucka!

  • beat up? Doesn’t seem possible at all. maybe he should’ve said “fought” instead
