Nothing Personal, Nautilus, It’s Just Business

From Peter Biskind’s Down and Dirty Pictures:

Undoubtedly urged on by Eve, [Harvey Weinstein] hired a personal trainer. At the outset, so the story goes, he told the trainer, “You better be here every day. Here’s a $1,000, I’m giving you in advance, don’t pay any attention to what I say, make me work out.” The trainer duly appeared at the appointed hour. Harvey, on the phone, made him wait, and wait. Finally the trainer gained entry to the inner sanctum, and said, “Let’s start.” Harvey replied, “I don’t have time now, here’s a fifty, get the fuck outta my office, come back tomorrow.” The trainer returned the next day, same thing. He came back day after day, week after week. Until he gave up.
