Vastavam web: Actor Jason Priestley says he punched disgraced Harvey Weinstein in the face at a party organised by the media mogul’s company, Miramax celebrating 1995 Golden Globes.The response by the “902010” alum comes after actor Tara Strong referenced the alleged incident while tweeting a message of sympathy for Mira Sorvino, who thanked director Peter Jackson for speaking up against Weinstein.”I didn’t say you had to leave. You just told me to leave… Right over there’ I tell him once again. Getting heated now. He then grabs me tighter and says ‘Why don’t we go outside and talk about this’. That was all I needed to hear,” Priestley wrote on Twitter.
In a recent interview, Jackson revealed Weinstein ran a “smear campaign” against Sorvino and Ashley Judd to keep them from working on “Lord of the Rings”.After “LOTR” director’s revelations, filmmaker Terry Zwigoff said Weinstein and his brother Bob, discouraged him to take Sorvino in his 2003 film “Bad Santa”.
