Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s press tour for his new e-book, ‘Cinema Speculation’, continued with a visitor look on Chris Wallace’s HBO Max collection ‘Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace’, the place the host pressed Tarantino on his relationship with Harvey Weinstein.

The disgraced movie producer labored with Tarantino on 9 films. The two severed ties amid Weinstein’s downfall in October 2017 over s*xual harassment and assault. Tarantino mentioned on the time that he was conscious of Weinstein’s behaviour to a sure diploma, however he harassed to Wallace that he by no means knew such behaviour included s*xual assault, stories Variety.

“I’d never heard the stories that later came out at all,” Tarantino mentioned.

“I heard the same stories that everybody had heard. What I wish I had done was talk to Harvey about it and say, ‘Harvey, you can’t do this.’”

“To tell you the truth, I chalked it up to a ‘Mad Men’-era version of the boss chasing the secretary around the desk. I’m not saying that’s ok. That’s how I heard it in that category. There was never any talk of r*pe or anything like that.”

Quentin Tarantino continued: “The reason I didn’t [say something to Weinstein] was because that’s a real hard conversation to have. I felt it was pathetic. I felt what he was doing was pathetic and I didn’t want to deal with his pathetic-ness.”

“I didn’t think it was, ‘Ok, you do this for me or you’re not going to get this movie.’ I never heard any actresses say anything like that,” Tarantino concluded. “It was just you know, ‘Don’t get in the back of a limo with him.’ It was easy to compartmentalise that to some degree. Anyway, I feel bad about. What I feel bad about is I feel bad that I did not have a man-to-man talk with him about it.”

Tarantino revealed in October 2017 that former girlfriend Mira Sorvino confided in him about Weinstein’s s*xual harassment. “I knew enough to do more than I did,” the director mentioned on the time.

“There was more to it than just the normal rumours, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things. I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Back in July 2021, Tarantino appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast and mentioned: “I wish I had sat (Harvey) down and gone, ‘Harvey, you can’t do this, you’re gonna f*ck up everything.’ Maybe his brother Bob (did), but I don’t think anybody talked to him about it.”

“And the thing about it is everybody who was in his orbit knew about it. Probably they didn’t know anything about r*pes, but they had heard things.”
