    Jennifer Lawrence Just Spoke About How She Felt After Being Used As A Defence By Harvey Weinstein

    "He's just that horrible ass boil that does not go away."

    Last Wednesday, Harvey Weinstein asked a judge to dismiss a lawsuit against him that had been made by six women who claimed he assaulted them.

    In the motion that he filed, Weinstein used parts of past statements made by actors Meryl Streep and Jennifer Lawrence in his defence.

    According to the statements, Meryl previously said that Weinstein "had always been respectful to her in their working relationship", while Jennifer has previously told Oprah that "[Weinstein] had only ever been nice to me."

    Both actors have since released statements denouncing their use in Weinstein's defence.

    Recently, Jennifer appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, who brought up the subject.


    Jennifer removed her shoes and got comfy before saying: "He's just that horrible ass boil that does not go away. You pop the ass boil. He's just the worst. When is it gonna end?"


    "In the middle of the night I had to come up with a statement in London, and it's still not over? His awfulness is still happening?"


    When Stephen asked if this was part of the reason she would be taking a year off from working, Jennifer said: "No, it's just by coincidence. I really love my job and I'm very happy."
