A day after he announced he was going to make a film taking on the NRA with Meryl Streep, Harvey Weinstein the producer of several violent films told CNNs Piers Morgan in an interview to air tonight that he has had a change of heart about violent content in film. django-unchained-trailerAsked by Morgan about his hypocrisy of making these violent films, Weinstein said, They have a point. You have to look in the mirror, too. I have to choose movies that arent violent or as violent as they used to be. I know for me personally, you know, I cant continue to do that. The change starts here. It has already. For me, I cant do it. I cant make one movie and say this is want I want for my kids and then just go out and be a hypocrite. He added that he would make a movie like Lone Survivor, a tribute to the United States special forces, but Im not going to make some crazy action movie just to blow up people and exploit people just for the sake of making it. As far as Streep, he said, people have to remember that Meryl Streep is an actress. Shes working as someone whose playing a part and all the heat should come my way. Heres the interview on CNNs website in two parts (the second after the post):

But let us all remember, Hollywood is all about appearances. And Harvey has succeeded in Hollywood. Ergo
well, you fill in the blanks.
Earth To Harvey:”GIVE THE MONEY AWAY,A$$H*LE”!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess he couldn’t take the heat.
It will be a true change of heart when he is able to admit that his movies, and all the others like them, that glorify the social outcast who lashes out with violence, are the true danger to this society and not the freedom to own guns.
Notice he does not say he will not do movies with violence only ones that are not as violent.
I have not seen any of his movies and am not likely to in the future. We will see what he does if he makes nonviolent movies that don’t make money.
I normally do not take much notice of people’s looks, but this man just looks like a fat, miserable, slob. He’s got more money than he knows what to do with, I’m sure, and as you say Hollywood IS about appearances.
And it seems he’s happy to be the ugliest man in town, which is sad.
You can’t have a change of heart when you have none. I know..I met him here in L.A. more than a couple of times. There were a few of us in the room full of libtard bootlickers who just ignored him.
Says the guy who has made millions making violent films. Change of heart, my butt. He just wants to be the “last one” who made them.
I guess he feels he has made enough money.
Right, Harvey. you are just a basket of goodwill.
Change of heart, nothing. He’s scurrying from the spotlight like a cockroach.
“I have to choose movies that arent violent or as violent as they used to be.”
The question, for me, has never been about the amount of violence in a film but whether or not that violence serves a purpose or is simply thrown in for shock effect. For example, The Wild Bunch was one of the most violent movies of its time, but I would argue there is not one gratuitous scene in that movie. So, again, I think this is a total cop out by Weinstein.
POS...money’s in the bank...typical lib hypocrite.
I don’t believe media makes a person violent but riddle me this...
if Hollywood doesn’t show cigarettes on film because they think it influences kids to smoke... why do they show violence?
They can’t even follow their own logic.
slime in two shoes
where does he live?
People like flowers and puppies, he should devote his life to making movies about them.
Greg Gutfeld gave him a good skewering as host of O’Reilly tonight, with special ridicule of his fatness and hypocrisy.
War on Women alert.....Streep is just an actress who does what I say is how I read his statement. Weinstien is covering for her.
Streep has armed guards and knows exactly what roles she plays... and she makes a lot of money for doing her schtick.
He did not have a change of heart in one day. He just threatened that his movie will make others wish they were not alive. What kind of repentance is that. He can go ahead and make his trashy stuff. I don’t care. It is pretty disturbing stuff.
It sounds like the chimp is trying to say that he “evolved”. The next thing you know, he’ll be looking for some stud to marry.
Liars will always lie.
His work has accomplished its purpose.
Harvey has received his reward, in full.
Google Weinstein and “blind item”.
I have half a hunch that Meryl Streep wasn't too happy that Harvey Einstein dragged her moniker into the fray.
Liberal as she is, she ain't that dumb....and she probably picked up the horn and told Harvey to quit using her name in his personal anti-gun crusade or she'll come over and floor him with a right hook to his fat, ugly mouth.
A Hollywood producer who has a heart? Stop the presses.
And that weirdo Quentin Tarantino is very upset.
I worked at his nightclub, Stage One, in Buffalo back in the early 80’s. He was a major A-Hole back then—treated bar staff like his personal servants, and bands like shit. I see time has not changed him.
"They can't even follow their own logic"
Making ultra violent gun movies as he rails against RKBA
is a minor offense for this hideous creep
He is a major player in Hollywood’s war on traditional values and Christianity
It is what it is.....a Godless pimp in a tuxedo accepting awards for entertainment is still just that
An agent of darkness
A living stereotype or charictature
Take her pick
His ape-ish casting couch extortions are legendary....
Imagine some comely lass banging a fat repulsive jerk like him for a role....
He is a few bad movies and one nutjob with a Marlin from being Larry Flynt
Pitiful....rich...gorgeous wife....but self loathing and to despise a nation made you rich but you feel rejects you for what you are
Thats it in a nutshell
I loved going there to hear Cock Robin and some of the other bands.
He and Streep must be getting a TON of HEAT!!! KEEP IT UP!!!
The ONLY people that will pay to go see this movie are the SAME idiots who HATE the NRA anyway!!
This is nothing but a way to get publicity for himself, Streep and his movie.
What does “Lone Survivor” have to do with anything?
I wonder if he, like some in the media, is just stunned by its popularity.
His movies are so gratuitous, I wonder if he ascribes senseless violence to the NRA supporters.
He doesn’t associate with members of his audience, just takes their money.
“Silver Linings Playbook” had some moments, but it had no theme. And I couldn’t bring the kids because of that and because it had pornography, and which could have easily been left out.
The kids loved “Lone Survivor”. No unnecessary violence, no pornography, great theme likeable characters.
Weinstein is baffled by the concept. So is Streep. Tarantino doesn’t care.
They are going to be baffled by “Lone Survivor” which does not care about the Oscars.
The man is a degenerate who produces a degenerate product, and embraces a degenerate culture.
Sounds like he realized he crossed a bridge too far when he decided to go after the 2nd Amendment.
Maybe he'll meet up with a Trayvon someday.
Hey I didn’t really want to kill all those people when I was robbing the bank...I think there should be more love and peace in the world and less violence. So what I did doesn’t matter, it is who I am now upon which I should be judged.
Time hasn’t changed him. He’s not called TWO FACE’ in the producers circle for nothing.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the true scum of the Earth we are discussing here. With any luck he’ll star in an AlQueda youtube clip for his last film.
