Oliver Stone on Harvey Weinstein: 'It's Not Easy What He's Going Through'

Oliver Stone has weighed in on Harvey Weinstein amid the growing allegations of sexual assault against his rival producer, according to The Hollywood Reporter. During the Busan International Film Festival on Friday, Stone told reporters that "I'm a believer that you wait until this thing gets to trial."

Stone, who is a chair of the festival's competition jury, declined to denounce Weinstein. "I believe a man shouldn't be condemned by a vigilante system," he continued. "It's not easy what he's going through, either. During that period he was a rival. I never did business with him and didn't really know him."

Amid the mounting allegations against Weinstein, Stone said he would not speculate. "I've heard horror stories on everyone in the business, so I'm not going to comment on gossip," he said. "I'll wait and see, which is the right thing to do."

5. Oh, dear.

He did what he thought was acceptable, for many years. He somehow missed the memo that his behavior wasn't acceptable. And now he's sad, really sad.

Well, fuck him. It's been a really long time since his behavior was acceptable. The fact that it continue long past that date simply shows what an oblivious ignoramus he was.

14. Putin lover. No shock he lacks the sense to keep his trap shut.

His interviews with Vlad were vomit inducing, or at least what I read of them. I refuse to go along with the pretense that Putin doesn't speak English. Turn the channel every time.

16. Oops - Oscar-Winning Director Oliver Stone Accused of Sexual Assault

While Oliver Stone defended Harvey Weinstein amid more than a dozen allegations of sexual harassment and assault, a former Playboy Playmate accused the “Platoon” director of sexual assault.

Carrie Stevens, who was best known as Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in June 1997 but also had several small movie and TV roles, claimed Thursday that Stone had grabbed her breast at a party.

The 48-year-old model told the Daily News that she was at a party at producer Ted Field's home in honor of Stone more than 20 years ago when Stone walked up to her standing by the front door.

"He was really cocky, had this big grin on his face like he was going to get away with something," Stevens, who was 22 at the time
