Mira Sorvino Says Harvey Weinstein Raped Many Of Her Friends
Harvey Weinstein has been indicted for rape and criminal sex act charges, and Mira Sorvino has been there since the beginning of his downfall as one of his most outspoke victims-turned-activists.
“He has raped many people that I love, so it’s not really a happy occasion,” she told Today this morning. “I think maybe there will be some celebration when he gets convicted and goes to jail. That is when the process will be complete and we will see justice really being served. But until then, this is a great first step.”
She added, “It feels like a really good first step, it’s him finally facing real, real criminal consequences for his criminal behavior. And so for that I feel gratified but, honestly, last weekend was a very emotional one and I cried many times because just seeing him brings up a lot of bad feelings.”
Mira claimed that he blacklisted her after she rejected his sexual advances, shortly after she won an Oscar for working with him in Mighty Aphrodite.
“At the time it happened, I told everyone that I knew…No one said, ‘Hey, this is sexual harassment you should go to the authorities.’…I didn’t think I was important enough to make a big deal over.” @MiraSorvino talks about her Harvey Weinstein story pic.twitter.com/Z2t2OvPguf
