In a conversation with TMZ reporters, Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino threatened to kill Harvey Weinstein after it was revealed that the disgraced movie mogul allegedly harassed and “blackballed” his daughter Mira.
“He better hope that he goes to jail. Because if we come across [each other] I think he will be lying on the floor,” Paul said.
“He's gonna go to jail that son of a b****. And good for him if he goes, because if he not, he has to meet me.”
“And I will kill that motherf*****.”
“My daughter is a wonderful and courageous human being. And doesn't deserve to be treated this way by this pig,” he continued.
Mira praised her father’s words on Twitter.
“'My love for my father has only continued to grow since this moment. All the love in my heart!” she wrote.
“He is the most loving father, the most brilliant actor, the most beautiful operatic tenor, the most talented visual artist- the wisest and most human advice giver, & best Grandpa ever!!”
Paul added that he was unaware of Weinstein’s treatment of his daughter prior to her revelations in The New Yorker last year.
In the interview, the award-winning actress said that Weinstein harassed her while she was promoting her role in Woody Allen's Mighty Aphrodite. She also said that after rejecting his advances, she suspected that Weinstein deliberately hurt her career.
“There may have been other factors, but I definitely felt iced out and that my rejection of Harvey had something to do with it,” she said.
Her suspicions were ultimately confirmed when Peter Jackson revealed that Weinstein’s company Miramax warned the acclaimed director off working with Mira, as well as Ashley Judd.
“I recall Miramax telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs. This was probably in 1998,” said Jackson.
“At the time, we had no reason to question what these guys were telling us - but in hindsight, I realise that this was very likely the Miramax smear campaign in full swing.”
“I now suspect we were fed false information about both of these talented women - and as a direct result their names were removed from our casting list.”
Mira responded to the news on Twitter.
“Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying. There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure. Thank you Peter Jackson for being honest. I’m just heartsick.”
