Paul Sorvino on Harvey Weinstein Harassing, Blacklisting Daughter: ‘I’ll Kill the Motherf*cker’
Mira Sorvino’s father said that Harvey Weinstein ought to go to prison…for his own good.
TMZ approached Paul Sorvino this week, and they asked him about how Weinstein allegedly harassed his daughter and threatened to derail her film career. And the elder Sorvino gave some very blunt comments about how the embattled producer should hope that they never see each other again.
“He ought to hope that he goes to jail, because if we come across, I think he’ll be lying on the floor,” Sorvino said. “Good for him if he goes, cause if not, he’ll meet me and I’ll kill the motherfucker. Real simple.”
The revelations about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct — ranging from harassment to assault — have left his entertainment career in ruins, and he might soon face criminal charges for his behavior throughout the years. Mr. Sorvino said he was not aware of how Weinstein treated his daughter before her story broke in the news, but Weinstein “would not be walking” if Sorvino knew sooner.
“This pig will get his comeuppance. The law will get him,” said Sorvino. “He’s going to go to jail and die in jail. But if he doesn’t, Harvey, come here, I have some news for you.”
