Peter Jackson says Harvey Weinstein made him pass actresses for LotR


#1

A substantial confirmation of Weinstein’s MO.


#2

I had a crush on Sorvino in the 90s. Always wondered why I never saw much of her, guess now I know.


#3

By the end of this I expect HW and his management team will be in prison for conspiracy, and we will see some smiles that haven’t seen the light of the camera in many years.

I feel like Jackson’s statement clarifies things. Like, the actual nuts and bolts of just how Weinstein abused his power- What actually made the difference between just using a “big man on campus” thing to appeal to impressionable young starlets, versus actually coercing them with real threats to their career… and actually followed through.


#5

Exactly. And people like Peter Jackson could be influenced without being wittingly complicit, which makes for tremendous influence to be used for Weinstein’s nefarious goals.


#6

Here’s hoping. But AFAIK, none of his enablers have faced consequences. Bob Weinstein still heads The Weinstein Company and owns a majority stake.


#7

Perhaps not everyone in Tinsel Town knew he was a sexual predator, but his reputation as a bully sure proceeded him.
