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

Sir Peter Jackson says the Weinstein brothers behaved like

The 56-year-old filmmaker said he was unaware of the allegations against Weinstein while working him on projects including The Hobbit and LOTR trilogy, but was wary of collaborating again. During this period, no offers were made to actors because that occurs after a film is greenlit, and Miramax never greenlit these films.

While he admitted that casting didn't actually take place until after the project had moved from Miramax to New Line, "because we had been warned off Ashley and Mira by Miramax, and we were naive enough to assume we'd been told the truth, Fran and I did not raise their names in New Line casting conversations".

On Saturday, Bad Santa director Zwigoff tweeted that Weinstein allegedly hung up the phone on him every time he mentioned the possibility of casting Sorvino in his holiday film. That was all I needed to hear'. "They weren't the type of guys I wanted to work with - so I haven't..." The same, however, can not be said for Weinstein. Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan and Gwyneth Paltrow are among the women who have accused Weinstein of sexual assault or harassment, many of which Weinstein has denied.

As recently as this year, Mira Sorvino called Mr. Weinstein and asked if her husband could be part of the SEAL television series ["Six"] he was producing and Mr. Weinstein cast him; when Christopher Backus received a better offer, Mr. Weinstein allowed him to amicably break his contact to peruse the opportunity.

"Priestley chimed in to tell his whole story: "'95 Golden Globes... at the Miramax Party...

Osweiler leads Broncos past Colts, losers of five straight
But the Broncos scored the final 18 points. "Pleased how we started the game, obviously". "He's a volume back. You can see what he can do, he can run through tackles". "It's simply being in one-score games".

"He then grabbed me tighter and said "Why don't we go outside and talk about this". "This was probably in 1998". "If we were unwitting accomplices in harming their careers, Fran and I unreservedly apologize to both Ashley and Mira".

Last week, Jackson told Stuff that he remembers Miramax shooting down the idea of casting either Sorvino or Judd in Lord of the Rings during the period that the film was going to be produced by the company. I guess we all know what type of person now.

While Sorvino wrote, "Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying". I said "you told me leave, I'm leaving." .

Mr. Weinstein has nothing but the utmost respect for Peter Jackson. I appreciate the truth coming out.

The Hollywood film producer has "unequivocally denied" any allegations of non-consensual sex.
