Bloom, who says she has known Weinstein for about a year since her book Suspicion Nation was optioned for a film, defended him last week in an interview with Good Morning America.
On Sunday, The Weinstein Company Board of Representatives released the following statement to E! On Sunday, the disgraced Hollywood mogul was sacked from the studio he started 12 years ago with his younger brother, Bob.
Before the Times ran their article, Weinstein told them that he was taking a leave of absence.
The company has also hired a law firm, Debevoise & Plimpton, to investigate the allegations independently despite his ouster. Weinstein was notified of the decision today via e-mail, according to The New York Times, which reported that his brother, board member Bob Weinstein, was one of the signatories.
But Streep was also quick to disavow any prior knowledge of Weinstein's alleged bad behavior, acknowledging that to her he was only ever "exasperating but respectful".
Following the allegations, Weinstein did issue a statement which began: "I came of age in the 60's and 70's, when all the rules about behaviour and workplaces were different". That was the culture then.
"I didn't know about these other offenses: I did not know about his financial settlements with actresses and colleagues; I did not know about his having meetings in his hotel room, his bathroom, or other inappropriate, coercive acts", Streep said.
