France moves to revoke Weinstein's honor title

Macron said in an interview with TF1 television on Sunday that he has "taken steps" to strip Weinstein of the honor over the multiple accusations of sexual assault and harassment now swirling around the Hollywood titan.

The scandal has also spurred a nationwide debate about sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace, especially in the film and TV industry.

British actress Lysette Anthony says she reported to police on Wednesday that Weinstein raped her in her west London home in the late 1980s. She said she was left feeling "disgusted and embarrassed" after the attack. The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday reported an allegation by Isa Hackett, a producer on one of Amazon.com Inc's shows, that Price had lewdly propositioned her in 2015.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the English Channel, British police are looking into new allegations of sexual assault against Weinstein.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences took the nearly unprecedented step Saturday of revoking Weinstein's membership.

"The presidency considers that this behaviour is in contradiction with honour", a spokeswoman said.

The fallout from the multiplying accusations against Weinstein also reverberated in France on Sunday.

France has started the process of stripping Harvey Weinstein of his Legion of Honour, France's highest civilian distinction, after allegations of sexual harassment against the film producer, President Emmanuel Macron's office said on Saturday.

Mr Sarkozy awarded the rank of chevalier, the lowest grade, after Mr Weinstein produced The Artist, the French silent film that won the best picture Oscar in 2011.
