Mira Sorvino's dad threatens to kill Harvey Weinstein

Posted January 06, 2018

"Because if we come across [each other], I think he'll be lying on the floor".

Mr Sorvino said he would turn to mob justice if Mr Weinstein was not jailed over claims of sexual harassment and rape. "I will kill the motherf****r".

Sorvino, 78, added that he would "kill" Weinstein if he ever sees him.

Mira Sorvino is proud of her dad for speaking out against Harvey Weinstein, to say the least. "If I had known it...he would not be walking".

"My daughter is a wonderful person-courageous and a wonderful human being who doesn't deserve to have been treated this way by this pig", he told TMZ.

Weinstein has denied any non-consensual contact with the women who have accused him, and has said he did not attempt to blacklist those who refused his advances, as Mira Sorvino alleges.

Mira Sorvino tweeted that she "burst out crying" after reading the interview with Jackson.

Mira believes this rejection of Weinstein ultimately hurt her career. Add Harvey Weinstein as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Harvey Weinstein news, video, and analysis from ABC News. The producer was accused last month of discouraging the director Terry Zwigoff from casting Mira Sorvino, the actor's daughter, in the 2003 film Bad Santa.

Both cases were brought to the attention of the Beverly Hills Police Department last month
Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault

Mira Sorvino is among the dozens of women to publicly accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

"The movies changed hands from Miramax to New Line before casting actually got underway, but because we had been warned off... by Miramax, and we were naive enough to assume we'd been told the truth, (producer) Fran (Walsh) and I did not raise their names in New Line casting conversations", Jackson recalled. "This was probably in 1998", said Jackson. "But in hindsight, I realize this was very likely the Miramax smear campaign in full swing".

Just seeing this after I awoke. "There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure", she tweeted on December 20. Thank you Peter Jackson for being honest.

A few days later Mira wrote: "I am blown away by all the immensely loving support you have all been giving me". But all this goodwill and kindness touches my heart.

He predicted Weinstein will end up in jail.

Weeks later, Sorvino said Weinstein invited himself to her New York City apartment after midnight on the pretense of work.

"I'll just slap him around".
