I’m legitimately crying right now at this news. When the celebs you put your trust in and step up like they should. Oh, man.

His comments are pretty great too: 

“My entire career is tied up with the man,” Smith said of Weinstein on his podcast Hollywood Babble-On. “I just wanted to make some fucking movies, that’s it…. And no fucking movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, fuck it, take it. It’s wrapped up in something really fucking horrible.

Though Smith says he was unaware of the allegations against Weinstein until the recent onslaught of public accusations, he still claims responsibility. “I know it’s not my fault, but I didn’t fucking help,” Smith told his podcast audience. “Because I sat out there talking about this man like he was a hero, like he was my friend.” He added, “I didn’t know the man that they keep talking about in the press. Clearly he exists, but that man never showed himself to me.”

Good for him both for doing this and acknowledging that not knowing about the accusations doesn’t change anything

‘No fucking movie is worth all this. Like, my entire career, fuck it, take it.’

I almost cried at reading this. I’m so used in the film world to hearing the rape and exploitation of women treated as some sort of unfortunate but necessary evil, like, oh, of course it’s terrible and of course I don’t support it but the important thing to focus on here is the movie, I mean would you really rather live in a world where Woody Allen and Roman Polanski never made a movie, I mean women are raped every day but how often do we get a film as important as Annie Hall or Chinatown? So yes, it’s terrible, but we just have to try not to think too much about how the sausage is made, the suffering of women is sad but mundane compared to the significance of Male Art

And for a filmmaker to come out and actually say no, ‘no movie is worth this’ because real human suffering is more fucking important than art, makes me simultaneously so happy and so sad because I’ve literally never heard anyone say it before
