Of course, it’s always important to hear both sides in an argument. So what defence has Harvey Weinstein mounted for his behaviour? Well, there was this interview from NY Magazine in 2002 where he seemed to be pointing the finger at… M&Ms?
“You know, for years I used to read about myself. They’d say, ‘He has a temper’ or ‘He’s a bully’ or something like that, and it always bothered me…
“What happened was, I was never an eater of breakfast or anything… I would just eat M&Ms all day, sweets, you know, for what I thought was energy, which is not energy at all. Some people handle sweets better… So that’s what caused these outbursts, you know?
“As soon as I started to recognize the sugar thing, there have been no outbursts. There’s been no anything at all. Zero. There’s been nothing. Not a word to anybody… My relationship with sugar has been the worst relationship of my life, but now I’ve tamed it.”
