Tom Hanks Slams Harvey Weinstein As More Sexual Harassment Accusations Are Made

'This is a sea of change.'

Tom Hanks has given his damning verdict on Harvey Weinstein, explaining how he sees the current state of things as “a watershed moment”.

The actor, who is on the board that voted to expel Weinstein from the Academy, is the latest in a long line of A-listers who have condemned the movie mogul.

“I think there should be a code of ethics posted in every lunchroom of every company on the planet that says here is the behaviour that is expected of you as an employee of this company.”

His comments came as Lupita Nyong’o became the latest actress to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct, writing an op-ed in the New York Times to describe a series of incidents that took place when she was still a student hoping to break into the industry. 

On Wednesday (18 October), ‘Game Of Thrones’ Lena Headey also became one of them when she detailed two separate encounters in a Twitter post. 

The number of women who have shared their stories is now over 35.

While Weinstein has apologised for some of his behaviour, he “unequivocally denies” all allegations of non-consensual sex.
