Quentin Tarantino Admits He ‘Knew’ About Harvey Weinstein

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino admitted that he knew about Harvey Weinstein's pattern of alleged sexual abuse and said nothing. “I knew enough to do more than I did,” Tarantino, who worked closely with Weinstein from 1992's Reservoir Dogs through 2015's The Hateful Eight, said. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.” He added, “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.” Among the actresses who told Tarantino directly of Weinstein's behavior was his former girlfriend Mira Sorvino. “I was shocked and appalled,” Tarantino said of his feelings at the time. “I couldn’t believe he would do that so openly.”
