TMZ posted video earlier today of Courtney Love telling a reporter that young women should stay away from Harvey Weinstein – you may have heard something about the Hollywood heavyweight recently in the news. Love, attending the 2005 Pamela Anderson roast hosted by Comedy Central, was asked on the red carpet, “Do you have any advice for a young girl moving to Hollywood?”
Her succinct reply, after a slight hesitation, “I’ll get libeled if I say it,” she says, presumably intending to mean she could get sued for libel, then drops the bomb. “If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party at the Four Seasons, don’t go.”
A couple of hours after TMZ posted the video, Love issued a clarifying statement via Twitter: “Although I wasn’t one of his victims, I was eternally banned by CAA for speaking out against Harvey Weinstein.”
