Sam Smith had nothing but praise for Emma Thompson speaking out against Harvey Weinstein. The singer tweeted early Friday (Oct. 13) morning, “POWERFUL words from Emma Thompson this morning about Harvey Weinstein. F---ing RESPECT!!”
On BBC2’s Newsnight, Emma Thompson gave a blunt interview regarding Weinstein’s role in casting couch culture was part of a systemic “public health” and gender crisis. Thompson referred to Weinstein as “the top of a very particular iceberg.” Of course, just as an iceberg only shows 10% above the water’s surface, the same applies to dangerous men in Hollywood, Thompson pointed out.
