Natalie Mendoza I Forgive Harvey Weinstein

Natalie Mendoza says she forgives Harvey Weinstein[1] for his alleged sexual assault on her.

We got the Australian actress Wednesday at LAX and asked if she'd forgiven him for what she claims he did to her during a 2005 script meeting -- allegedly lunging at her and groping her, before she threatened to punch him if he didn't lay off.

Surprisingly, she does -- and her explanation is interesting. Sounds like she thinks society is partially to blame for Harvey's misdeeds[2], and the only way forward is through forgiveness.

She also tells us why she thinks Weinstein deserves another chance in show biz -- once again putting the burden on everyone else to bring him back into the fold.
