Paul Sorvino Threatens to Kill Disgraced Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein
Paul Sorvino, the father of actress Mira Sorvino, has a bone to pick with Harvey Weinstein. In fact, he wants to ruin Weinstein's life.
A Scorned Sorvino
The elder Sorvino does not have any kind words to say about the disgraced movie mogul after reports surfaced last year that Weinstein targeted his daughter. Director Peter Jackson offered proof to both Sorvinos about Weinstein's misdeeds in an interview with New Zealand publication, Stuff Magazine. Jackson revealed that both Weinstein and his brother, Bob, warned him that casting Ms. Sorvino in the Lord of the Rings films would be a bad idea.
While the veteran actor did not learn of his daughter's dark past with the former Weinstein Company leader until much later in life, Mr. Sorvino added that he would have put the disgraced movie mogul in "a wheelchair."
Sorvino also believes that if Weinstein did not end up in jail for his numerous sexual misconduct allegations, he would personally take care of the movie mogul.
"He has to meet me," said Sorvino. "And I will kill the (expletive). Real simple."
On Dec. 8, 2017, Ms. Sorvino wrote a guest column on the Hollywood Reporter website that brutally described her torture at the hands of Weinstein. The actress revealed that the movie mogul allegedly groped her during the media circuit of her 1995 film Mighty Aphrodite. The future Falling Skies star earned both a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and a Golden Globe award for her portrayal of Linda Ash.
"My daughter's ... a courageous and a wonderful human being, and doesn't deserve to have been treated that way by this pig," said Mr. Sorvino.
The older Sorvino is also confident that Weinstein will not only be brought to justice but also claimed that the movie producer would rot in jail.
Weinstein's Victims Speak Out
The Sorvinos are not the only people who want to see Weinstein in jail. Actress Salma Hayek revealed in an editorial piece that not only did Weinstein was her monster, but he also harassed her during the filming process of her 2002 Frida Kahlo biopic Frida. Hayek's co-star, Ashley Judd, also revealed in an Oct. 26, 2017, interview with Diane Sawyer that Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her during a meeting at a Beverly Hills hotel. Game of Thrones actress Lena Headley also stated that she felt "powerless" during her encounters with Weinstein. Headley reported that the former movie mogul bullied her throughout the filming process of the 2005 fantasy horror film The Brothers Grimm.
Weinstein still claims that he is innocent regarding all 80 sexual misconduct allegations against him. However, Weinstein is currently seeking "sex addiction" treatment in Arizona.
