Harvey Weinstein just dropped some of Hollywood's biggest names in a recent court filing as a means to appear well-liked and get the alleged sex crimes against him tossed out of court.

As Radar reported, six women filed the class-action lawsuit against Weinstein, The Weinstein Company, and others, last December, alleging all defendants were involved in the operation of an immoral organization of sexual assault dubbed the "Weinstein Sexual Enterprise."

Weinstein's shocking defensive remarks were filed Tuesday, The Blast first reported. In the papers, he reminds the court that A-lister Jennifer Lawrence once "told Oprah Winfrey she had known Weinstein since she was 20 years old and said 'he had only ever been nice to me.'"


The executive, who was let go from the company he founded last year, furthered in the docs that Meryl Streep also "stated publicly that Weinstein had always been respectful to her in their working relationship."

Additionally, Weinstein claims even Gwyneth Paltrow was not bothered by his alleged inappropriate behavior. In 2017, Paltrow came forward claiming she, too, was harassed by the former film exec, The New York Times reported.

"For example, Gwyneth Paltrow was allegedly harassed during the filming of Emma in 1994, which allegedly caused her to fear the prospect of being hired," the papers state. "Yet, Paltrow went on to star in another Weinstein production - Shakespeare in Love - for which she won an Academy Award in 1998."

The documents further allege Paltrow "was not so offended that she refused to work with Weinstein again, nor did her career suffer as a result of her rebuffing his alleged advances."

Also in the motion to dismiss, Weinstein asks for "all" of the six women's accusations against him to be dropped as they are "long expired" due to various statute of limitations.

The papers were filed by Weinstein's lawyer on the same day TWC filed its own motion to dismiss. The company placed all of the blame on Weinstein, Radar reported.
