Harvey Weinstein is currently in the middle of a criminal investigation and is living under house arrest. Over 80 women have accused him of sexual misconduct, and he recently settled the civil suit with dozens of them for a relatively paltry $25 million, in which he did not have to pay his own money or admit to any wrongdoing.

Weinstein recently sat down for an interview with Page Six and showed an absolutely staggering lack of remorse and awareness of his situation.

"I Deserve A Pat On The Back"

in the interview, Weinstein claimed "I deserve a pat on the back when it comes to women."

"I feel like the forgotten man. I made more movies directed by women and about women than any filmmaker, and I’m talking about 30 years ago. I’m not talking about now when it’s vogue. I did it first! I pioneered it! It all got eviscerated because of what happened. My work has been forgotten."

Allegedly, Weinstein behaved like a tyrant for the entire interview -- that look place in an elite wing of the New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center on Friday, a day after three-hour spinal surgery to remove three bone plates compressing his vertebrae.

Absolutely No Feelings Of Shame

Weinstein goes on trial for rape on January 6th, and he claimed in the interview that "I want this city to recognize who I was instead of what I’ve become."

Weinstein even had the gall to mention making Gwyneth Paltrow's career. Paltrow has gone on the record claiming that Weinstein tried to lure her into a hotel room and massage her when she was only 22.

"Gwyneth Paltrow in 2003 got $10 million to make a movie called View from the Top. Ehe was the highest-paid female actor in an independent film. Higher paid than all the men."

A Typical Bully

Weinstein focuses on the nature of the films that Miramax used to make, touting them as progressive and ahead of their time, particularly films like Transamerica and Paris Is Burning, saying "This was a company that took social issues and tackled them."

Weinstein also harped on his charity work.

"I made a success out of myself. I had no money, and I built quite an empire with Miramax and decided to give back. If you remember who I was then, you might want to question some of this."

"This" being 80 women accusing him of sexual misconduct, rape, and harassment.
