Scott Rudin confirmed to me Monday night that it is his email describing Harvey Weinstein’s alleged callous treatment of the late Anthony Minghella’s and the deceased Sydney Pollack’s families. Rudin also claimed to me that HW’s people all day pestered him “to protect Harvey and deny the email and lie to Page Six” — so he told me he did “in order to keep peace for the next weeks that the two of us still have to work together on The Reader.” See my previous, Harvey Weinstein’s Offer I Can’t Refuse… and Harvey Weinstein vs The Film World.
UPDATE: Rudin Admits 'HW' Email Is His
