Goldie Hawn reveals Harvey Weinstein, Madonna betrayal: ‘Don’t f–k with me’


Goldie Hawn doesn’t mind what Harvey Weinstein is doing Cell Block Tango.

The Hollywood actress, 77, is blasting the jailed producer, saying he cheated her out of a film role in the late 1980s.

Havan said diversity Wednesday that he and Madonna were set to star in a screen adaptation of “Chicago,” produced by Weinstein, before he unexpectedly relaunched the project.

“Harvey really undermined me and Madonna,” said the star, who was cast as Velma Kelly, while the “Like a Virgin” singer was attached to play Roxy Hart.

At the time, Han was in his early 40s. However, before production began, Weinstein unexpectedly began a new script in which Velma was 23 years old, effectively cutting Hahn out of the role.

The star recalled confronting Weinstein after learning of the news. He told Variety: “I said, ‘Don’t mess with me. Because I know what you’re doing. We have made a deal.”

Although Weinstein never moved to hire Han in the role, he did pay him a salary as he signed on to star in the project.

“You stand for a bully. And sometimes, you win,” he declared. “I told him later: ‘You know what the best part of paying me is? Not the money. You’ve restored faith in my dignity and morality.’ Little did I know…”

Weinstein eventually produced the big-screen adaptation of “Chicago” in 2002, with Catherine Zeta-Jones playing Velma.

Zeta-Jones won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for this role.

Weinstein was once the most powerful producer in Hollywood, famous for making and breaking careers.

But in 2017, several women came forward that the film mogul had raped and sexually assaulted them, leading to his dramatic downfall. Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence in New York for his crimes.

Last month, the power player was sentenced to another 16 years behind bars by a Los Angeles judge after pleading guilty to three counts of rape and sexual assault in that city.

Weinstein released a statement from jail about Hahn’s claims.

He told Variety: “Acting roles were always chosen based on what was best for the project, artistically and financially.”

The Notorious producer oddly claimed that Han had a “positive” experience of being attached to the role, adding: “We felt we did the best we could on ‘Chicago’ and I’m proud of that.” And I’m very happy with Goldie’s experience. It was a positive one, and she has the strength to say that in this environment. All I can say is, ‘Thank you.’

Hahn, however, isn’t losing any sleep over Weinstein’s passing, telling Variety: “He’s finally living up to his karma.”

Elsewhere in her interview with the industry publication, Han revealed how she slept when she won her best supporting actress Oscar in 1970 for “Cactus Flower.”
