James Cameron admits he almost hit Harvey Weinstein

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Wed Nov 29, 2017 10:03 am

Titanic director James Cameron has revealed that he nearly swung his Oscar trophy at Harvey Weinstein when they got into an argument at the ceremony almost 20 years ago.

The row took place at the 1998 Academy Awards, at which Titanic won 11 Oscars including one for Best Picture. Cameron mused that given the recent sexual assault allegations made against Weinstein, there are probably many who would have liked him to follow through with it.

“I remember almost getting in a fight with Harvey Weinstein and hitting him with my Oscar,” Cameron told Vanity Fair in an interview celebrating Titanic’s 20th anniversary. “[People] would’ve preferred I had played through on that one.”

Cameron explained that the argument never quite descended into a scuffle because fellow guests were telling the pair to stop, and the live broadcast was about to recommence.

“It was happening on the main floor at the [theatre]… And the music had started to play to get back in our seats,” he said.
