Harvey Weinstein seemed to be in good spirits Friday a day he was accused of sexually harassing mixed women over the past 3 decades.
The filmmaker, 65, laughed, smiled and joked around with paparazzi as he left his West Village unit and walked toward his car. He declined to pronounce about the allegations swirling around him, but told the photographers he respects them.
“I’m not responding any questions,” he says in a video published by TMZ. “I know you’ve got a pursuit to do.”
He then joked to the shutterbugs as he got into the backseat of a black SUV that he had to go to work since he’s “not abounding like you guys.”
