During the interview, Love was asked to speak about any advice she’d give to young Hollywood hopefuls, Courtney Love’s response was, “If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party at the Four Seasons, don’t go.” At the time, many speculated her words were more of a humorous tone, but recent allegations against Harvey Weinstein paint a very different picture.
