'Pulp Fiction' director Quentin Tarantino regrets not talking to producer Harvey Weinstein, 'I wish I had...'

Los Angeles: Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino continued his press tour for his new book ‘Cinema Speculation’ with a guest appearance on Chris Wallace’s HBO Max series ‘Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace’, where the host pressed on his relationship with Tarantino. Harvey Weinstein. The disgraced filmmaker worked with Tarantino on nine films. The two cut ties amid Weinstein’s October 2017 fallout over sexual harassment and assault. Tarantino said he was aware of Weinstein’s behavior to a certain extent at the time, but insisted to Wallace that he never knew such behavior included sexual assault, Variety reports.

“I never heard the stories that came out afterwards,” Tarantino said. “I heard the same stories that everybody heard. All I wish I could have done was talk to Harvey about it and say, ‘Harvey, you can’t do this.'”

“To be honest, I said it as a “Mad Men’-era version of the boss chasing the secretary around the desk. I’m not saying that’s right. That’s just the way I heard it. . . . There was no rape or anything like that.”

Tarantino continued: “The reason I didn’t [say something to Weinstein] Because that’s a real tough conversation. I felt miserable. I felt what he was doing was pathetic and I didn’t want to deal with his misery.”

I don’t think, “Well, you do this for me or you won’t get this film.” I’ve never heard any actress say that,” Tarantino concluded. “You know, `Don’t get in the back of a limo with her.’ It’s easy to break it down to some extent. Anyway, I feel bad. I feel bad about feeling bad. No man spoke to him about it.”

In October 2017, Tarantino revealed that ex-girlfriend Mira Servino had told him about Weinstein’s sexual harassment. “I know how to do more than I do,” the director said at the time.

“There was more to it than normal rumours, normal gossip. It’s not a second thing. I know he did these two things. I want to take responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work. I should have done it then, I wouldn’t have worked with him.”

In July 2021, Tarantino appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast and said: “If I (Harvey) sat down and said, ‘Harvey, you can’t do this, you’re going to screw it up.’ Brother Bob (did), but I don’t think anybody talked to him about it.”

“And the thing about it is that everyone in his orbit knew about it. Maybe they didn’t know anything about the rape, but they heard things.”
