How many people knew about Harvey Weinstein? This legendary director did..by

The Harvey Weinstein scandal is arguably the biggest story of the now – with allegations regarding the movie mogul’s conduct with women behind the scenes reaching fever pitch – as some stars have accused him of sexual harassment, while others have outright stated that he committed sexual assault. In any case, ahead of any legal proceedings, Weinstein has been fired from his own company with his relationship with his wife also in tatters , according to reports – as the rabbit hole appears to deepen every day. The scandal is enabling women and men to speak out about various harassments they have witnessed and experienced in Hollywood – with pop stars Ed Sheeran and Paloma Faith also expressing concern that such problems may be occurring within the music industry too. It is a bombshell that is causing ripples – and, for many people, cathartic ones – as it appears this is a scandal which may help to unveil the seedier underbelly of Hollywood which stars hope will be overturned.

It has emerged that director Quentin Tarantino – best known for celebrated works such as Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds and last year’s The Hateful Eight – has expressed regret over having known about Weinstein’s alleged mistreatment of women in the past. As an investigation launches into allegations levelled at Weinstein, Tarantino went public on what he knew – stating that while he had once made sure to confront the movie boss over his conduct, he wished he had done more.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard,” advised the director, in conversation with the New York Times. “I knew enough to do more than I did. There was more to it than just normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t second hand. I knew he did a couple of these things.” The Weinstein Company has a long history with Tarantino – having produced the vast majority of his movies – whether this will change in future in light of such scandals remains to be seen.

Weinstein has been expelled by his own company, the British Film Institute and the Hollywood Academy. At the time of writing, his accusers reportedly number more than 40 – and with big names such as Kate Beckinsale, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevigne and Lena Headey all having shared stories about Weinstein behind the scenes, it appears that this could be a scandal set to blow Hollywood apart – and for good reason.
