In 2017, it was revealed that Hollywood’s most powerful mogul – and, as it turned out, sexual predator – Harvey Weinstein had been carrying out his stomach-churning practice of serial, systematic rape of aspiring actresses and assistants for decades.
Quentin Tarantino, whose latest film is 2019 Once upon a time… Hollywood was on October 25 Cinema Speculation is publishing a new book about filmmaking. On the tour promoting his book, the director said he had heard about the stories, but not all of them.
“I never heard the stories that came out later,” Tarantino said of Harvey Weinstein.
I heard the same stories everyone else heard. I wish I had talked to Harvey about this! I would have told him: “Harvey, you can’t do that”. To be honest, I chalked up his relationship with women to the period version of Mad Men when the boss chases his secretary around the desk. I’m not saying it’s okay, but that’s how I’ve heard it…in this category. It was never about rape or anything like that. I didn’t say anything to Weinstein because it’s a very difficult thing to discuss
Tarantino admitted Deadline according to She added that she found what Weinstein was doing pathetic and “didn’t want to deal with the patheticness of it.”
Only word of mouth in the limousine reached him
Tarantino said he was unaware of the severity of Weinstein’s abuse.
According to him, not a single actress refused her role in the film. He hasn’t heard of anyone being blackmailed into doing what they ask or being kicked out of the film. “I’ve never heard any actress say that,” Tarantino added. “There was only the rumor that “Don’t get into the back seat of the limousine with him.” Anyway, I feel bad for not talking to him manly about it”.
