Following the New York Times story detailing sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, Jennifer Lawrence has joined fellow celebrities Meryl Streep and Jessica Chastain in speaking out about the reports. "I was deeply disturbed to hear the news about Harvey Weinstein's behavior," she said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. "I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations. This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting. My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward."
Lawrence worked with Weinstein on the 2012 film Silver Linings Playbook, which was distributed by the Weinstein Company. The movie earned Lawrence an Oscar for Best Actress in 2013.
Several days after the Times published its story, the Weinstein Company announced that Weinstein had been fired.
