- Harvey Weinstein's former assistant spoke against him
- "Harvey was a monster," says Zelda Perkins
- "He tried to rape my colleague," she added
Zelda Perkins said that Harvey was more of a "power addict" than a "sex addict" and the incidents of sexual misconduct stemmed from his obsession for power. She told BBC: "I don't think he's a sex addict. He's a power addict. Everything that drove him was about dominance with men and women. He put an enormous amount of energy into humiliating men and an enormous amount of energy into getting women to submit. That was what drove him: his overarching need for Power," Zelda added in her interview.
Zelda called Harvey a 'monster' and said, "He was a master manipulator and his moods changed very quickly and you never knew if you were his confidante or going to be screamed at."
Many big Hollywood names including Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, George Clooney, Kate Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio have spoken against Harvey Weinstein in recent days.
