Actress Vivica A. Fox told Circa she never experienced sexual assault or harassment issues with film producer and former film executive Harvey Weinstein while working with him on "Kill Bill" (2001) and "Ella Enchanted" (2004), but that there is no excuse for his alleged misconduct.
"He was a gentleman. He actually made my part bigger in 'Ella Enchanted,' but that is absolutely in no defense of the chaos that he has created," Fox told Circa.
More than 50 women have come forward with allegations against Weinstein since the New York Times first dropped their bombshell report.
"He was a gentleman. He actually made my part bigger in 'Ella Enchanted,' but that is absolutely in no defense of the chaos that he has created."
While promoting her new play "Two Can Play That Game," a modern adaptation of the 2001 movie starring Fox, Gabrielle Union, Morris Chestnut, Anthony Anderson and more, she offered advice for women and young girls in the workplace.
"Speak up, speak out. Let people know that it’s going on," she told Circa.
Fox, who has appeared in multiple anti-gun public service announcements, also spoke about the need for better gun control in the United States.
"I definitely believe that we need to start addressing gun control," Fox said. "I mean I think that we are seeing with that guy that’s in the White House that evidently he’s funded by the NRA and that’s the main reason why he’s not fighting for more gun control," she said, referring to president Donald Trump.
"I definitely believe that we need to start addressing gun control."
While speaking at the NRA Leadership Forum in Atlanta earlier this year, Trump told attendees: "You came through for me, and I am going to come through for you. You have a true friend and champion in the White House."
