Howard Stern considered the nakedness of Harvey Weinstein, concluding that there is “no girl on the planet” who wants “to see Harvey Weinstein naked and is going to get aroused.” Stern was talking about the biggest story in Hollywood on Jimmy Kimmel Live! — as Stern’s friend Kimmel brought his show to New York for “Brooklyn Week.” The two pals had plenty to talk about. Stern was customarily self-deprecating too, putting himself in the same situation as Weinstein saying: “Now, I’m a man, if you saw me naked you’d throw up.” But where Stern differs from the disgraced movie mogul is that Stern is self-aware. Weinstein apparently thought the women he propositioned — or worse — liked the idea of watching him.
Stern was incredulous. So many women have come forward with tales about being harassed by Weinstein that Stern wondered when he had time to make movies. “It’s an unbelievable story,” Stern said — and that’s saying something coming from a man who has seen just about everything in the entertainment business. Once in a while even the original shock jock can be shocked by something. And Harvey Weinstein’s lechery did it for Stern.
