Harvey Weinstein scandal victims list is so long that includes such big named of Hollywood like: Daryl Hannah, Rose MacGowan, Asia Argento, Annabella Sciorra, Brit Marling, Kate Beckinsale, Gwyneth Paltrow and many more.

The now-disgraced producer is being accused of sexual misconduct by more than 50 women, The New York Times first reported the allegations; since then The Times and The New Yorker have reported numerous allegation of sexual misconduct in detailed articles.

Former film mogul’s attorneys, Berk and Brafman said in a statement to PEOPLE,  “Mr. Weinstein has never at any time committed an act of sexual assault, and it is wrong and irresponsible to conflate claims of impolitic behavior or consensual sexual contact later regretted, with an untrue claim of criminal conduct. There is a wide canyon between mere allegation and truth, and we are confident that any sober calculation of the facts will prove no legal wrongdoing occurred.”

The statement concluded, “Nonetheless, to those offended by Mr. Weinstein’s behavior, he remains deeply apologetic.”

On Tuesday, C.A.A. issued a statement to The Wrap, “We apologize to any person the agency let down for not meeting the high expectations we place on ourselves, as individuals and as a company. We unequivocally support those who have spoken out publicly. Out of respect for our clients, we will maintain the confidence of anything said in private conversations.”

The company said, “We continue to take additional action. We established an initiative called Evolve, led by a group of 17 women, to evaluate and improve our existing policies and practices to ensure even greater vigilance, awareness, and information-sharing in preventing harassment.”
