Harvey Weinstein believes he'll ultimately be forgiven by Hollywood, Piers Morgan has mentioned.
Morgan told GQ magazine he spoke to Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual assault by dozens of women such as Rose McGowan, pictured, and is being investigated by police in London, New York and LA.
Weinstein said in a statement that he spoke with Morgan past year.
Morgan told GQ magazine he had spoken to Weinstein at a clinic in Arizona, where the producer is seeking treatment for sex addiction.
He said: "I've spoken to Harvey in the clinic in Arizona, for about an hour".
Morgan said that the disgraced film producer is "fighting", and said that he is a "fascinating character". "The apocalyptic symptom of the whole thing - the casting couch finally brought to judgement".
"I am unable to categorical the identical stage of shock as some folks in Hollywood".
"Listen, this has been the system since Hollywood existed", Morgan said.
Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sex with anyone.
"It has been an ethical cesspit for the reason that Twenties, and the concept Harvey Weinstein is the one villain?" Do me a favour.
