Harvey Weinstein: 'I Did Not Snub Nicole Kidman Film In Cannes'

Harvey Weinstein has dismissed reports he deliberately snubbed the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Nicole Kidman's new Grace Kelly movie following a feud with the director, insisting he was busy visiting Syrian refugee camps.

The movie mogul has been embroiled in a public dispute with Grace of Monaco director Olivier Dahan over the film's content and proposed changes, and he was noticeably absent from the red carpet unveiling at the famous French event on Wednesday (14May14).

However, Weinstein is adamant he did not intentionally avoid the premiere, insisting he was unable to attend as he had a prior engagement on a United Nations charity trip to Jordan to meet refugees from war-torn Syria.

Weinstein tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "My wife Georgina (Chapman) and I have been in Jordan visiting two Syrian refugee camps. This was a long-planned trip with (the United Nations)... to bring attention to the plight of refugees... forced to flee Syria."

Grace of Monaco was hit with scathing reviews from critics followings its premiere at Cannes, while Dahan told reporters at a press conference during the festival that his feud with Weinstein had been resolved: "If we're making changes, we'll do them together. There are no more polemics, It's all resolved, we're working together."
