Roy Price Put on Leave of Absence at Amazon Studios

Amazon Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bezos has said he wants his studio division to deliver more big hits like HBO's popular series "Game of Thrones" that get people talking and set social media abuzz, prompting changes in the studio unit, Variety reported in September. "You will love my d**k", he said, according to Hackett, who relayed her account to multiple individuals in the hours after the alleged episode.

There was no immediate response from Price.

Casey Affleck - who has also been dogged by allegations of sexual harassment that he has denied - won a best actor Oscar this year for his role in the Amazon original movie "Manchester by the Sea". She received no further updates on the claims, and refrained from sharing details publicly until now.

Hackett is the daughter of author Philip K. Dick and a producer of Amazon's "Man in the High Castle", based on his work.

Meanwhile, Price continued to spearhead other Amazon projects, including two Weinstein Company television shows - The Romanoffs, from Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, and an untitled David O. Russell drama starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore. Hackett says she was never told the outcome of that inquiry, but notes that she hasn't seen Price at any events involving her shows. Weinstein, whom McGowan and other women have accused of harassment and, in some cases, rape, has denied sexually assaulting anyone.

Amazon says the head of Amazon Studios is on leave following allegations of sexual harassment.

Writer and actress Rose McGowan, who came forward as one of Harvey Weinstein's victims and remains one of the most outspoken voices against sexual harassment in the industry, added her own thoughts on how Amazon enables sexual predators Thursday. "We are reviewing our options for the projects we have with The Weinstein Co".

The news comes as Amazon is now reviewing two expensive dramas the streamer has in the works from The Weinstein Co.in the wake of rape and sexual harassment allegations against former co-founder Harvey Weinstein.
