Leonardo DiCaprio has added his voice to those condemning Harvey Weinstein for decades of sexual harassment and alleged abuse.
The movie star, who worked with the producer on films like Gangs of New York, The Aviator, Django Unchained, has released a statement slamming the 65-year-old at the centre of multiple sexual harassment allegations.
The 42-year-old actor took to Facebook on Tuesday (10Oct17), writing: “There is no excuse for sexual harassment or sexual assault – no matter who you are and no matter what profession.”
DiCaprio also applauded the “strength and courage” of the women who have come forward “and made their voices heard” in recent New York Times and New Yorker exposes.
DiCaprio’s statement landed shortly after Weinstein’s wife, designer Georgina Chapman, announced she is leaving the movie mogul.
