Quentin Tarantino breaks silence on Harvey Weinstein allegations: 'I'm stunned and heartbroken'

Quentin Tarantino breaks silence on Harvey Weinstein allegations: 'I'm stunned and heartbroken'”

Quentin Tarantino has now commented on the three dozen allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

The Weinstein Company also released Tarantino's films "Django Unchained" (2012 ) and "Inglorious Basterds" (2009), which rank among the company's highest-grossing films.

They've been close friends for 25 years - Weinstein even hosted an engagement party/Pulp Fiction-reunion for Tarantino and his girlfriend Daniella Pick. Many in the media have questioned the silence of Hollywood men in the wake of Weinstein scandal which grows bigger everyday with many female actors such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne, Heather Graham and many others opening up about Weinstein. "After looking at what has been reported in many publications over the last couple of days, I'm appalled and commend the courage of the women who've stepped forward to report sexual abuse or rape", Stone said in a statement to Variety.

Weinstein and Tarantino have worked together since the former distributed the latter's 1992 breakout film Reservoir Dogs.

The 34-year-old actress shared on Twitter that she went to a "long dinner" with the 54-year-old director, who then asked her to issue a statement on his behalf regarding his longtime collaborator, Harvey.

Weinstein has denied any wrongdoing, with a spokeswoman for Weinstein saying: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein..."
