Actor Nathan Lane is accusing disgraced film executive Harvey Weinstein of physically assaulting him at a birthday party for Hillary Clinton 17 years ago, reports Page Six. The altercation was over a joke the Birdcage actor had made onstage about the comb-over of New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.
"This is my f-king show, we don't need you," Weinstein reportedly yelled at Lane, before allegedly throwing him against a wall. Lane responded by saying, "You can't hurt me, I don't have a film career." The actor recounted the altercation during an interview at the New Yorker Festival on Saturday night.
The accusation comes along with the numerous reports from women claiming that Weinstein had sexually harassed and assaulted them and leveraged his industry power to sweep the acts under the rug. Three women have accused the mogul of rape, while Gwenthyn Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Ashley Judd have joined the chorus of actresses who claim he's been inappropriate around them, reports The New York Times.
