Weinstein 'derailed my profession' Sorvino says after Peter Jackson declare

Weinstein 'derailed my profession' Sorvino says after Peter Jackson declare

The blockbuster director told writer Dani McDonald, "I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs".

In Peter's original comments, he claimed he was fed "false information" on the two actresses, which he believes was created to deter him from casting them.

It is quite heartbreaking to think of Sorvino (and all of the other actresses who have been treated similarly) second-guessing their talent when work dried up after they attempted to stand up to Weinstein when nobody was listening. "This was probably in 1998", he told the site. Yesterday, Weinstein and his legal team denied the claim that Miramax derailed Judd and Sorvino's career.

Jackson and wife Fran Walsh developed the films with Weinstein's Miramax in the 1990s but production was eventually moved to New Line Cinema ahead of their launch in 2001.

She wrote on Twitter: "Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying".

During his own interview, Jackson told not just of Weinstein's treatment of the actresses but said he behaved shamefully with everyone else involved in the film. There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure.

Now, Peter Jackson fills in the gaps. At the time, we had no reason to question what these guys were telling us. We have no direct evidence linking Ashley and Mira's allegations to our Lord of the Rings casting conversations of 20 years ago - but we stand by what we were told by Miramax when we raised both of their names, and we are recounting it accurately. Fran and I immediately remembered Miramax's negative reaction when we put their names forward, and we wondered if we had unwittingly been part of the alleged damage to their careers, at the hands of Miramax. "I appreciate the truth coming out", she said. "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", he said.

The statement also said that Judd later appeared in two other Weinstein films, Frida and Crossing Over, and that Sorvino had asked Weinstein earlier this year for her husband to be cast in a series he was producing.

Weinstein is the central figure of the Hollywood sexual harassment scandal, in which dozens of actresses have accused him of misconduct.

Sorvino, who was one of the first actresses to go public with allegations against Weinstein, revealed she "burst out crying" when she heard Jackson confirmed that Weinstein had orchestrated a smear campaign against her.
