Emails reveal, Harvey Weinstein told his publicist that actor “Jennifer Aniston should be killed” after she said that he sexually assaulted her.
In documents made public in court today, Sitrick public relations company executive Sallie Hofmeister, who at the time was working as Weinstein’s spokeswoman, forwarded him an email from the National Enquirer dated October 31, 2017, and wrote, “Not sure if you saw this one. Jennifer Aniston.”
In the email, the Enquirer said: “Jennifer confided to a friend that during the production of the 2005 movie Derailed, Weinstein sexually assaulted her by pressing up against her back in (sic) grabbing her buttocks.”
The email continued: “Through the years he would frequently stare at her cleavage/breast and move his mouth around, making Jennifer uncomfortable.
“We also quote a source close to Jennifer who tells the Enquirer: ‘Harvey was infatuated with Jennifer Aniston – he had a massive crush on her and constantly talked about how hot she was.'”
About 45 minutes after Harvey Weinstein received the email, he replied to Hofmeister: “Jen Aniston should be killed,” court documents show.
The emails were among other documents filed under seal in Manhattan Supreme Court but made public ahead of Harvey Weinstein’s scheduled sentencing on Wednesday, for raping a hairdresser and forcibly performing oral sex on a former Project Runway production assistant.
The Enquirer never published the allegations regarding Jennifer Aniston, and a spokesman for the actor called them “false”. “Jennifer has never been harassed or assaulted by Harvey Weinstein,” publicist Stephen Huvane said.
“He never got close enough to touch her and she has never been alone with him.”
