A litany of A-listers want to make sure they get their money before the Weinstein Company goes under.
Hollywood's finest, including Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts and Leonardo DiCaprio, have all filed paperwork in an attempt to ensure they receive their royalty checks, according to The Blast.
Jennifer Lawrence claims she's still owed more than $102,000 for "Silver Linings Playbook," while Meryl Streep says she's waiting on paychecks for both "August: Osage County" and "The Giver," according to Deadline.
The Weinstein Company filed for bankruptcy in March after months of collapsed sales. The actors seemingly fear that there will not be enough money left to pay out the remaining debts once a bankruptcy court is done with the company.
Anne Heche added herself to the growing list of women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. The "Six Days, Seven Nights" star said Tuesday, January 23, 2018, on the "Allegedly with Theo Vonn & Matthew Cole Weiss" podcast that the disgraced movie mogul fired her after she refused to give him oral sex. "I personally did not suck Harvey's d--k, although he showed it to me and I got out of the room before there was any physical contact," the 48-year-old actress said. Heche went on to say that she was then fired from the Miramax project she had been hired for. She said on the podcast that she didn't come forward at the time because she feared further retribution. "That’s why every one of us was 19, 20, 21 or 22. He didn't go after the 40-year-old woman," she said. "He hits on me when I’m 19, 20, 21, 22, vulnerable, scared, frightened. And that doesn't mean it's not going to happen anymore, but it sure as hell got a kick in the pants the last couple of months." (Taylor Jewell/Invision/AP)

The waiting parties also claim they aren't even sure how much they're owed because Weinstein Company accountants failed to provide accurate information, according to The Blast.
In late March, the Weinstein Company released a 394-page document listing all of the people and companies who are still owed money, including Malia Obama, Alexis Bledel, Robert De Niro, John Legend and Jerry Seinfeld.
The production company remains in limbo six months after more than 100 women came forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault.
