A recently unearthed interview from the red carpet of Comedy Central's 2005 roast of Pamela Anderson, shows Courtney Love warning women about Harvey Weinstein. More specifically, the brief clip shows the Hole singer warning aspiring actresses to not enter his hotel room.
In the clip, comedian Natasha Leggero asks Love what advice she'd dispense to young women in Hollywood. The response from Love serves as more of a warning than a piece of career advice.
"Ummm… I’ll get libeled if I say it," Love tells Leggero, before launching in. "If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in his Four Seasons (hotel room), don’t go."
Love's now decade old warning bears a whole new weight in light of Weinstein's sexual abuse allegations the past few weeks. The growing stream of allegations started on October 5th when The New York Times published a report where eight women shared their allegations of harassment and assault at the hands of Weinstein. Following that report, even more women (and men) in Hollywood have detailed traumatic run-ins with the producer.
