Keepin’ It 100: Hollywood Producer Harvey Weinstein Tells President Obama His Movie Idea Sucks!

- By Bossip Staff

Weinstein: 1, Obama: 0

Harvey Weinstein says he rejected a movie pitch sent to him by none other the President of the United States.

In an interview with the Times of London (via The Wrap), Weinstein claimed Barack Obama sent him a spy novel and suggested he adapt it to the screen. “I sent him an email back saying he was the most overqualified book scout I’ve ever had,” Weinsten said.

Though it might seem like a bold move for even a movie producer as accomplished as Weinstein, he may feel like he has earned the right to be frank with the President. According to public records, Weinstein has donated over $75,000 to democratic campaigns this election cycle, including a $35,800 check directly to Obama’s campaign.

Weinstein, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and some other famous friends have hosted fundraisers for the President that have raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars for the campaign.
