Turned out that Tarantino heard about Harvey’s unwelcome advances since 1995 from his ex-girlfriend Mira Sorvino.

“I thought Harvey was hung up on her in this Svengali kind of way,” he said in the interview with the New York Times. “Because he was infatuated with her, he horribly crossed the line.”

Moreover, he also knew about Rose McGowan’s story, who was one of the 50 women involved in Weinstein’s assaults (as for the moment).

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him” – he added.

 Do not afraid anymore

Lysette Anthony reveal she was raped by Weinstein in 1980s in London. The same happened with Asia Argento. She was 21 as she said in the interview, she was afraid to lose her career in case she refused.

Gwyneth Paltrow was 22 when Harvey importuned her. Another world-famous actress Angelina Jolie also reported about unwanted advances in the late 1990s and “as a result chose never to work with him again, and warn others when they did,” she told.

Among women accusing Weinstein in different sexual offensive actions are  Cara Delevingne, Eva Green, Rosanna Arquette, Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, Zoe Brock, Katherine Kendall, Lucia Evans, Tomi-Ann Roberts, Emma de Caunes, Romola Garai, Dawn Dunning, Lauren Sivan, Liza Campbell, Léa Seydoux, Claire Forlani, Erika Rosenbaum, Louisette Geiss, Sophie Dix, Myleene Klass, Heather Graham.

As Nexter wrote before, Weinstein denies many of these allegations. His spokesman adds that “Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual”.
