Harvey Weinstein Allegations

In October 2023 Julia Ormond sued Harvey Weinstein, the talent agency CAA, Miramax and The Walt Disney Company. In her lawsuit she accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting her in 1995. She claimed that in 1995 Weinstein lured her to his hotel room where he climbed on top of her, masturbated and forced her to give him oral sex. She claimed she immediately told her then agents at CAA, Bryan Lourd and Kevin Huvane, who allegedly told her not to speak out. In her lawsuit she accused CAA of breach of fiduciary duty and negligence. Miramax – the company Weinstein co-founded with his brother Bob Weinstein – and The Walt Disney Company were sued for alleged negligent supervision and retention. From the lawsuit:

"The men at CAA who represented Ormond knew about Weinstein. So too did Weinstein's employers at Miramax and Disney. Brazenly, none of these prominent companies warned Ormond that Weinstein had a history of assaulting women because he was too important, too powerful, and made them too much money."

In response to the lawsuit CAA claimed that Ormond's lawyers had demanded a $15 million payment in exchange for her not taking her allegations against the agency public. Ormond was represented by CAA from 1995 through 1999.

Personal Life

From 1988 to 1994, Julia was married to actor Rory Edwards, who she met during a production of "Wuthering Heights." Ormond wed political activist Jon Rubin in 1999, and they welcomed daughter Sophie in 2004. Julia and Jon divorced in 2008. Since the mid-1990s, Ormond has been involved in the fight against human trafficking, and in 2006, she teamed up with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. She has been an advocate for the non-governmental organization Transatlantic Partners Against AIDS, and she served as a founding co-chair of FilmAid International.Β  In 2005, she was named a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, and in 2007, she established the non-profit organization the Alliance to Stop Slavery and End Trafficking (ASSET), whose mission is to "ensure human rights in all supply chains through solutions that drive transparency and empower individuals to make informed purchasing, investment and employment decisions."

Real Estate

In June 1989 Julia paid $1.5 million for a home in LA's Brentwood neighborhood. She sold this home in 2012 for $2.575 million. In 2014, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel bought the home for $3.33 million.
