“If I meet [Weinstein] on the street, he oughta hope that he goes to jail, because if we come across, I think he’ll be lying on the floor, somehow, magically. He’s going to go to jail. Oh yeah. That son of a bitch. Good for him if he goes, because if not, he has to meet me. And I will kill the motherf***er. Real simple.”
Since the last fall, Mira comes to the list of those 50 women’s who has accused Harvey of sexual misconduct and harassment. This is the first time Paul has openly talked about Harvey in the public. Though his comment was severe, it was the father speaking up to defend his daughter.
As per the statement of Mira, Harvey harassed her at the Toronto International Film Festival in 1995. Furthermore, she explained:
“He started massaging my shoulders, which made me very uncomfortable, and then tried to get more physical, sort of chasing me around,”
In the recent time, Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson also alleged Harvey and Bob Weinstein that they tried to blacklist Mira Sorvino. Later on, Harvey’s representatives opened up about the allegation of Peter. The representative stated:
“Mr. Weinstein has nothing but the utmost respect for Peter Jackson. However, as Mr. Jackson will probably remember, because Disney would not finance the Lord of the Rings, Miramax lost the project and all casting was done by New Line. While Bob and Harvey Weinstein were executive producers of the film they had no input into the casting whatsoever…”
“As recently as this year, Mira Sorvino called Mr. Weinstein and asked if her husband could be part of the SEAL television series [Six] he was producing and Mr. Weinstein cast him; when Christopher Backus received a better offer, Mr. Weinstein allowed him to amicably break his contract to pursue the opportunity.”
