In an interview with the New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino was candid about his long association with legally embroiled movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” Tarantino admitted, saying that he’d known for decades about Harvey Weinstein and his sexual misconducts, which have resulted in multiple allegations of sexual harassment and graver crimes levied against the producer.
Tarantino is now ashamed that he did not take a firmer stand in not working with Weinstein despite knowing as much as he did. But he also admitted that he didn’t know the extent or depth of the producer’s actions.
“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.”
Tarantino has directed a number of hits with Weinstein in the production and distribution seat, from “Reservoir Dogs” to “Pulp Fiction” to the “Kill Bill” series to the more recent “Inglourious Basterds” and “The Hateful Eight.”
