Most of them are completely replaceable by others. They largely have no unique or intrinsic ability. They should stop whinging the nonsense about harmed careers.
Power and influence goes a long way. Consider this.

Imdb give Weinstein 331 credits as a producer, which is evidence of the enormous amount of influence he has accrued and the vast number of people he has worked with over the last four decades.
Other producers respect his opinion. Don't employ her would go a long way in Hollywood.

Producers are the ones who make the money available for films to be made they can easily be scared off by another producer who they believe to be more knowledgeable of the actor/actress. e.g. "don't invest in that film unless she/he is replaced, they'll cost you a fortune in delays as they are prima donnas!"

That is the reality of Hollywood.

So what. Still is a VERY LONG way from showing he actually carried out any "threats".

You agree with my point that it would involve other people. Has anybody actually come forward and said "he advised me not to employ her"? How could he have claimed "X is a prima donna", when X doesn't yet have a career?

It was have been more than a full-time job keeping track of everybody and supposedly sabotaging their non-existent careers.

Re: Harvey Weinstein

You have your opinion, I have mine. I don't think we'll ever agree so no point in continuing this discussion.
