“Sex and the City” actor Gilles Marini: I was “a piece of meat” for Hollywood execs

Gilles Marini, who played Samantha Jones’ boy toy in the 2008 Sex and the City film, has opened up about his experiences with Hollywood execs in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

“I was approached by extremely powerful people,” he tells People“I became a piece of meat for many executives in Hollywood.”

“This man doesn’t need to go to a sexual addiction [treatment],” says the 41-year-old French actor/model. “That is a joke to me. When you violate someone, the only place you need to go is jail.”
