He was once a globe-trotting Hollywood titan - now he’s a cut-off prisoner who’s out of the loop on how people cook meals.

Harvey Weinstein, the infamous movie producer and convicted rapist, was part of an unlikely discussion about the ins and outs of air-fried food with his defense lawyer during an extradition hearing on Monday.

“I bought an air fryer, and it’s a whole new world,” said attorney Norman Effman before the former film producer showed up.

A court clerk also jumped into the discussion saying: “I keep saying, should I get one, should I not get one – I probably should!”

Effman mentioned that you could prepare more than just the typical fried chicken and french fries. “You can do hamburgers. You can do anything in the damn thing. It’s great,” he said.

Weinstein immediately looked curious, and asked his lawyer if the life-changing Appliance was similar to a George Foreman grill, which it is not.

“This is a kind of like a convection oven,” Effman said.

Effman continues using wings as an example, saying, “You can make them without a lot of oil. You just do a little brushing, so you’re making healthy fried food.”

Weinstein is currently serving time in the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison in Alden, New York.

Evidently, air-fried wings are not an option on the menu, so this newfound information is a mere tantalizing tease.

Weinstein is serving 23 years in prison for rape and other felony sex crimes and is also facing life in prison on new charges in California.
