The Weinstein company has in recent years turned more toward television, producing series like the long-running "Project Runway" and the canceled Netflix drama "Marco Polo". Weinstein has since been removed from his position at his movie studio The Weinstein Company. The brothers previously founded the film company Miramax, which was named after their parents, Miriam and Max. "I appreciate the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it".

Streep won a best actress Academy Award in 2012 for her portrayal as British stateswoman Margaret Thatcher in the Weinstein Company release, "The Iron Lady".

Weinstein's Hollywood career spans decades. Explaining that he was an owner of the restaurant, he invited her to tour the kitchen.

The mogul's then-attorney Lisa Bloom said in a statement that her client "denies numerous accusations as patently false", though Weinstein said that he "bear [s] responsibility for my actions" in an interview to The New York Post on Friday. When he finished, he suggested they both return to the dining room. And f**k you to anyone who know about it and let him get away with it.

She told him absolutely not, ending what she described as a "very short conversation".

Meryl Streep, one of the greatest female Hollywood actors of all time, has spoken out against former producer Harvey Weinstein following reports that he sexually harassed a number of women in the business.

"The behaviour is inexcusable, but the abuse of power familiar".

"The intrepid women who raised their voices to expose this abuse are our heroes", she said.

Hamas' weapons risk could kill Palestinian reconciliation
An official in the Islamic militant group said Thursday that Saleh Arouri will be the deputy to politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh. The PA now coordinates security of the West Bank with Israel, which Hamas rejects.

Streep says that many people in Hollywood did not know about his alleged behaviour until then.

"I see this as a tipping point", Konner said. The company produced hit films including "Pulp Fiction", "The Thin Blue Line", "Sex, Lies and Videotape", "Tie Me Up!"

Representatives for Streep didn't immediately return messages Monday.

Kiss The Girls star Judd and Rose McGowan, who appeared in films including Scream, were among the women involved, according to a New York Times story which first detailed the allegations last week.

Mark Ruffalo has slammed Harvey Weinstein for his "disgusting abuse of power" after it emerged he had sexually harassed a number of female employees for nearly three decades.

It was a surprisingly swift downfall for a man who once dominated the Oscars.

Weinstein's leave of absence from the production house he co-founded with his brother began on Friday, and the company announced the hiring of a team of lawyers to conduct an investigation into sexual harassment claims against the movie mogul outlined in a New York Times story. He has said he intends to fight the Times over its reporting.

The Weinstein Co.'s board of directors fired its co-chairman Sunday.
