Actress Courtney Love, who was lead singer of grunge rock band Hole, warned aspiring actresses in 2005 to stay away from film producer Harvey Weinstein.

TMZ released the video Saturday showing an interview with Love at a red carpet event for the Comedy Central Roast of Pamela Anderson. 

“Do you have any advice for a young girl moving to Hollywood?” an interviewer asks Love.

The singer pauses for a moment, saying, “I’ll get libeled if I say it,” before issuing a warning.

“If Harvey Weinstein invites you to a private party in the Four Seasons, don’t go,” she quickly says. 

Weinstein has recently been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual harassment and assault.

Love took to Twitter on Saturday to say Creative Artists Agency, a talent and sports agency, “eternally banned” her for talking about Weinstein.

In a 2001 interview with the New York Daily News, Love joked that Weinstein wouldn’t have sex with her because she’s “not a shiksa,” a non-Jewish woman.

Clarification: Language in this story has been amended to clarify that Love said Creative Artists Agency “banned” her for comments she made about Weinstein, not banned her from speaking about him.
