My Weakness is a 1933 American Pre-Code musical film directed by David Butler and starring Lilian Harvey, Lew Ayres and Charles Butterworth. It was the second of four films made by the British-German actress Harvey in Hollywood, who had emerged as major star during Weimar Germany.

It both was and wasn't the first mainstream Hollywood film to use the word "gay" as a descriptor of homosexuality. In one scene, Charles Butterworth and Sid Silvers commiserate over their miserable, hopeless shared love for Lilian Harvey, until Butterworth is struck by a solution: "Let's be gay!" However, the Studio Relations Committee censors decreed that the line had to be muffled.
