Harvey Weinstein raped Annabella Sciorra & aggressively harassed Daryl Hannah

Annabella Sciorra

Ronan Farrow has written another piece for The New Yorker about Harvey Weinstein. This follow-up contains graphic, disturbing and triggering stories from actresses who were two scared to come forward in the first round of interviews Farrow conducted. Farrow even says that he spoke to Annabella Sciorra before the first article was published, and that she gave him a line about how she didn’t have anything to say, on or off the record. It’s much like the Bill Cosby thing – once the first victims come forward publicly, the other victims are less afraid, and they feel like there’s space for them to tell their stories too. Anyway, you should read the full piece here in the New Yorker. It’s horrific. I’m going to focus on the two main stories, the stories of Sciorra and Daryl Hannah.

Annabella Sciorra says that Weinstein raped her. Sciorra met Weinstein just as an up-and-coming actress, through industry contacts and parties and such. They had a friendly relationship at first, and she went to Weinstein to help get a friend’s screenplay produced. One night in 1992, Weinstein drove her home and dropped her off. She went inside, got ready for bed, and then Weinstein knocked on the door. She opened the door a crack to basically ask why he was there, and he forced his way inside, then violently raped her in her bed as she tried to physically fight him off. She blamed herself for a long time and she didn’t speak about it to anyone for years, not even her therapist.

After the rape. Weinstein punished Sciorra professionally and she didn’t work for three years, hearing “We heard you were difficult; we heard this or that.’ I think that that was the Harvey machine.” When she did start working again, Weinstein began a campaign of harassment. She was in London working in 1995, and Weinstein began leaving her messages, sending cars for her at her hotel and repeatedly trying to get in touch with her. She couldn’t sleep, she would barricade herself in her hotel room and she even made the production move her to a different hotel so he couldn’t find her. Sciorra says that she still prefers to sleep with a baseball bat beside her bed.

Daryl Hannah met Weinstein in the early 2000s. She met him through her work with Quentin Tarantino on Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2. When promoting Vol. 1 at Cannes, Daryl was staying at the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc. That’s when Weinstein began calling her over and over, and when she didn’t pick up the phone, he came to her hotel room and began pounding on her door, demanding that he let her in. She escaped from the ground-floor hotel room and stayed that night with her makeup artist.

Daryl’s second incident in Rome. A few years later, when in Rome promoting Vol. 2, Daryl had done all of the premiere and parties and everything so she retired to her room with her friend, another hair-and-makeup artist, Steeve Daviault. They were eating spaghetti in bed, watching a Sofia Loren movie and that’s when Weinstein just let himself into her room. He was apparently stunned to find that she had a friend with her, and he started barking orders at her, that she needed to be downstairs at a cocktail party. She thought it was bullsh-t but after he left, she put on a dress and went downstairs to find the bar completely empty. Weinstein was waiting for her, and he demanded that she let him touch her breasts and she declined. Hannah says that immediately after that, she started feeling the effects professionally: “The next morning, the Miramax private plane left without Hannah on it. Her flights for a trip to Cannes for the film’s French première were cancelled, as were her hotel room in Cannes and her hair-and-makeup artist for the festival.”

Daryl Hannah’s last word: “I called everybody,” she recalled, including her manager, a producer on the film, and its director, Quentin Tarantino. “I called all the powers that be and told them what had happened. And that I thought that was the repercussion, you know, the backlash from my experience. And it didn’t matter. I think that it doesn’t matter if you’re a well-known actress, it doesn’t matter if you’re twenty or if you’re forty, it doesn’t matter if you report or if you don’t, because we are not believed. We are more than not believed—we are berated and criticized and blamed.”

[From The New Yorker]

I believe Daryl. I believe Annabella. And I feel ill thinking about how long they’ve been living with this bullsh-t, Annabella in particular. He raped her and then he kept punishing her, over and over. He punished her professionally, he punished her emotionally, he got off on making her feel unsafe and vulnerable. God, there just isn’t even a word for it anymore – he’s disgusting, he’s a monster, he’s inhuman, he’s unrepentant, he’s a psychopath. It’s just awful.

    What was that, Tarantino? Speak up.

    • Snazzy says:

      yup, makes me rethink the way he wrote his statement. Another privileged liar.

    • Sky says:

      I knew there was a reason for my feelings about both Tarantino statement and people giving him too much credit.

      As I said before Tarantino waited so long to see if he would be called out and only spoke the “truth” because he had to, not because he gets it now. Tarantino is the man who own girlfriend told him what Harvey did her and he still chose to be friends with him.

    • Katherine says:


    • Tara says:

      Yeah… very disappointed in QT.

    • Curiosity says:

      Tarantino knows whose a** to kiss in order to make movies the way he wants to make them. He wouldn’t dare to offend W. because W. could end Tarantino’s way of making movies: decent budget and prime actors and prime cameramen … . W. could cut T. out.

    • Wilma says:

      Not going to defend Tarantino, but I think she might be the actor he said hadn’t gone public yet.

    • pinetree13 says:

      YEP my brain stuck on that too! I’m ashamed that I felt empathy for his earlier statement. However, now that I know he knew THIS SPECIFICALLY I am disgusted with QT.

    • N.L. says:

      People give Tarantino too much credit. He’s really freaking weird. There are “stories” about him in H’Wood, as well.

      • zuzusgirl says:

        Thank you N.L.! I don’t know why people think Tarantino is any better. He’s creepy as hell.

        My heart breaks, esp. for Annabella. I always wondered why she seemed to disappear for a long while.

        He (HW) needs to go straight to hell.

  2. Shambles says:

    Just another happy Monday in 2017, y’all.


    *sticks entire head into a bathtub full of liquor*

    • Milla says:

      Don’t look at this that way. At least now people know and those women are somewhat free. It is okay for them to speak up now.

      I cannot believe how many women he abused. It’s mind-blowing. Hollywood is going down and i just hope we continue to read stories until they are all outed. Cos this pos isn’t the only one.

    • marymoon says:

      *cringe laughing. ‘s truth.

  3. Nicole says:

    Notice that she says here that she told all the higher ups including…Terantino! Amazing.
    I’m so done with Hollywood and their BS at this point. I only believe the victims currently. I don’t believe the “I don’t knows” or the “I knew he was a cheater” stories. It’s frankly bullsh*t and lies to cover their asses.
    There are so many complicit parties here it makes me sick

    • crazydaisy says:

      Totally done. Thinking about how many rape scenes, female corpses, serial killers, gun deaths, breasts, strippers and altogether objectified women I have seen in my life…strictly in movies and TV shows made by sick men like QT and HW. Don’t want to support it.

  4. LuckyZeGrand says:

    He was going to be abusing women on his deathbed if that NYT article didn’t come out.

  5. Jayna says:

    I read the full story in The New Yorker when it came out. I was sick to my stomach. Poor Anabella. She was raped by this pig. My heart breaks for her as far as what she endured and also for how fearful she was to to this day on the repercussions.

    And it could have been Darryl if she hadn’t had someone in her room. Then still trying to trick her to go downstairs, and then punishing her like he did cancelling everything.

    This article by Ronan hit me really hard.

    He needs to go to jail. He is a violent criminal.

    • Carrie1 says:

      Same. Annabella’s story hit hardest. Resonates too close too. I can’t cry anymore, I’m exhausted and it’s killing what little health I have.

      Thanks Celebitchy for writing about this and putting words to try defining Weinstein. I can’t even find words for him anymore. Hitler comes to mind now along with Weinstein which is a mess I know but that’s how I feel about them both.

      Heartbreaking. My heart breaks for all these women.

    • Christin says:

      I also think he would have forced himself on DH, had she not escaped or had someone with her.

      She has always had an air of vulnerability about her, and he may have thought he could manipulate her as if she were far younger.

    • Cintra.C says:

      I had read stories in the past about Weinstein, but those stories didn’t even touch on how reprehensible he is. I always wondered why I didn’t see more of Annabella in movies. I wondered if she had made the choice to step back. I now believe that Weinstein blacklisted her.

  6. blogdis says:

    The Stories are actually getting worse if that’s even possible
    I hope at least one of these cases can be prosecuted, he really deserves to be in jail

  7. Sixer says:

    “we heard you were difficult”

    This makes me feel sick. Actually, physically sick. Because that’s the power nexus in a nutshell, isn’t it? And it really is worst where power and fame are concentrated. Politics, media, film, etc.

    • Alix says:

      Suddenly, going to the movies feels like shopping for clothes in the Child Sweatshop department. Just gross.

      • Sixer says:

        It really does. And it makes me feel helpless, like a tsunami has just crashed over me.

      • Betsy says:

        Doesn’t it? I was at a used bookstore that also sells dvds, idly thumbing through them and I just thought god they all feel tainted with the violation of who knows how many women and children.

    • Snazzy says:

      honestly, reading all of this stuff this morning makes me want to stop watching movies and just read books from now on

    • Embee says:

      I have never paid attention to who produces/directs movies. I just went to movies that seemed interesting/good. Now I am paying attention and I will be a very selective consumer, while giving preferential status to women-produced and directed films. This is all such crap.

      • Brian says:

        I’m happy this is starting point for to take a closer look at this industry and how you support it. Unfortunately, most people won’t and not much will change in this industry. It’s terribly sad, but people are so hungry and self-centered that they ignore the problems and pain of others.

    • msd says:

      The “difficult” smear is something we should all – and I include myself – take note of. Her story should make us all very, very careful when women in Hollywood are mysteriously labelled as “difficult”. Who is saying it, and why? We should be more critical and skeptical.

      • Sixer says:

        Yes. We really should.

      • manta says:

        Or when they don’t show up at premiere or a red carpet. The “I see X or Y didn’t even bother to put a dress and defend her movie” comment should be avoided.
        Who knows what happened to them behind close doors? As Hannah’s story shows, the powers that be can totally make it impossible for you.

      • Luca76 says:

        Pretty much every woman that has come forward so far has had that label foisted on them with the exception of Goop who was able to make a sort of uneasy peace with Weinstein.

      • Cintra.C says:

        Yes, I know I will keep that in mind the next time an actor is labeled as “difficult.”

      • Rose says:

        Yes most if not all of these women who have spoken out have been labeled by the media/tabloids as difficult, “slut” diva, fake and so on. The public has brought into that narrative.

        I wonder if Harvey was behind the smear campaign against Lupita? I remember last year or the year before out of no where the tabloids we’re saying that Lupita was a diva on the set of her Broadway show and her cast members hated her. Which was odd because her cast members had group photos posted on Instagram of them having a great time and how much they loved working together even before those stories came out. I also remember how the opinion of her change on this site because people brought into that narrative.

        We should all be mindful of what we believe about female celebrities who have been given these labels without any proofs to back up these claims.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        “We should all be mindful of what we believe about female celebrities who have been given these labels without any proofs to back up these claims.” This.

      • Carrie1 says:

        Yes. I’m on alert whenever I hear anyone disparaging a woman and using the silencing technique. “She’s difficult” or any other manner. Women do it to other women too. Thinking of Julia Roberts et al ostracizing Angelina Jolie, that sort of thing.

      • Sky says:

        @ Rose and CINTRA

        I agree with both of you. It makes me question why we are to quick to believe the narrative that is being sold to us by the tabloids about women.

  8. ArchieGoodwin says:

    You know, i wondered sometimes what happened to her. She was one of my favourites- Hand that Rocks the Cradle is a fantastic movie acting wise. I liked Annabella and Rebecca equally in it.

    And now I know. While i was casually wondering about a great actress, she was coping with being raped, being blamed and punished for that rape.

    • PPP says:

      Speaking of Rebecca DeMornay… gotta wonder is something like this is why her career tanked.

      • holly hobby says:

        Yes Rebecca had a career resurgence during that time span (Hand that Rocks the Cradle, Backdraft, Man in the Iron Mask) then she disappeared.

    • Cannibell says:

      Same here. She’s a brilliant actress and I wondered why we weren’t seeing more of her. Now we know, and it’s horrifying that not only were these women violated, but we were deprived of the opportunity to see them do what they are so good at because of one power-mad rapist and a whole industry full of people with toxic recto-cranial inversion.

      A pox on their houses.

    • Talie says:

      Yeah, the last big thing I knew her from was The Sopranos. Other than that…

      • CE says:

        She is so, so good on Law and Order: Criminal Intent, but only lasted a year. Absolutely tremendous acting. I’m so sick and sad to read what that asshole did to her.

    • manta says:

      She starred in Mr Wonderful, one of my favorite rom-coms, and it’s not even my genre of films. Her duet with D’onofrio on Say a little prayer is a really great scene.
      And of course,Jungle fever.

    • ArchieGoodwin says:

      I wonder now too about Renee Zellweger. She was hot, her career on fire. She married Kenny, annulled and suddenly- she’s gone.
      Maybe she’s coming back now? maybe.

      But in the wake of all these stories coming, from all sides, makes me wonder what actually happened to her. I believe I read she was as surprised at the turn in her career as the rest of us.

    • NorthOfBoston says:

      There are so many actresses over the years who have come and gone like that, or seemed like they were about to break big and then went quiet, or derailed somehow. Like for example, I’d thought Rose McGowan was a good enough actress and a presence, but then she seemed to unravel a bit, same with Selma Blair. I just figured it was the stress or influence of the industry, that not everyone managed it well. Now I’m wondering how many of these people were dealing with the trauma of abuse and/or assault at the hands of a prominent/powerful person in the industry and/or dealing with campaigns of retaliation by their predatory abusers.

      Gah! This makes me so angry and sad!

  9. PPP says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again– the impact he has had on actress’s careers is just astounding. And it’s so much worse than we know, I am sure. Think about it– who is the female Clooney? Who is the female Matt Damon? Who is the female Ben Affleck? Not only do women face a dearth of roles, not only does motherhood have a different impact on a woman’s career– but they face active career sabotage by would-be rapists, and I’m sure Weinstein isn’t the only one. THIS is why women can’t succeed, across all careers. I myself have nearly dropped out of my field due to harassment and the way my harassment was covered up by men who said they were sympathetic to my face while saying I was a dramatic bitch behind my back.

    • Snazzy says:

      this is so true …

      • erbs says:

        yes, in my industry they tell women, “you’re too intimidating.” Code for fuck you, we’re not promoting you.

    • adastraperaspera says:

      I totally agree with you. The major themes running through our popular culture have been shaped by these women-hating men. Those themes in music, movies, art, etc. train little boys that they should treat women like objects. Those themes keep us enslaved. From Hitchcock and “his blondes” to these horrendous recent revelations… It’s a perverted man’s world, and we all just live in it. I don’t trust any of them.

      • adastraperaspera says:

        Also, I left my awesome job at one of the most successful internet start-ups in the 90s, because my boss kept following me into hotel rooms, trying to touch me during lunches, dinners, etc. and booking us on trips where we would be alone in rental cars and hotels. His stalker ways drove me to resign, and I lost all my company stock–which no lie would be worth millions right now. People have asked me why I didn’t say anything, stick up for myself, reach out for help, etc. I felt helpless and stupid for years about it.

      • PPP says:

        @ adastraperaspera You have all my sympathy. I think tech is very much like this. Watching what happened to Ellen Pao was very illuminating. There’s an extent to which powerful people control the press there as well– troll farms, for instance. And it’s not actually mentally healthy to continue to pursue a career if it’s toxic. You made the right choice.

  10. Nancy says:

    In The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, Annabella’s character was touched inappropriately by the perv doctor who is the husband of the psycho who later becomes her nanny. In the film, the doctor shoots himself in the head and the nanny falls to her death after destroying Annabella’s family. Life imitating Art. No. Weinstein isn’t behind bars. He’s alive and well. Guessing the police weren’t notified after the rape. I would love Annabella to have an hour with that baseball bat with him tied and terrified. All of Hollywood who knew of this monster and closed their eyes and shut their mouths should go straight to hell with him.

  11. ell says:

    “Now when I go to a restaurant or to an event, people are going to know that this happened to me,” Sciorra said. “They’re gonna look at me and they’re gonna know. ”

    this brought tears to my eyes. there are tons of reasons as to why people don’t come forward with these stories, and this is one of them. i get it, completely.

    • Sixer says:

      Yes. If you come forward, your life and you your whole self get defined by it. It’s insidious.

      • Nikki says:

        I understand this completely. I live it. Like Archie Goodwin above, I also wondered “what happened” to this actress, and now we know. She had her life and career hijacked. I pray HW goes to jail for a long time.

      • kaiko says:

        it’s called human nature, we judge each other. you can’t change that. ask anyone with autism or a disability what it’s like to be defined by something that happened to them as they live with it every hour of their lives and are judged by everyone they meet. only they don’t give press conferences or interviews or have millions in the bank. perspective really is everything in life.

    • magnoliarose says:

      It had a similar effect on me too. I felt sad for AS. Sometimes saying it makes it real and then there is no going back to the comfort of denial and whatever coping mechanism employed for survival.
      I remembered her from Sopranos and wondered what happened to her after the show.

      This issue is much bigger than I ever imagined and it is like we are existing in a constant low tide where all this garbage is being washed up and exposed. But it should not be seen as only an industry problem when this happens to women in prisons, minimum wage jobs, by men in social services, clergy, Wall Street, universities, hospitality industry, politics and on and on. Anywhere women have very little power we are vulnerable to exploitation.

  12. Char says:

    Is this the 2nd story we are hearing about him forcing his way into someone’s house & raping them there? Or did I hear this story before & it just didn’t have a name attached to it? Many of the other stories are disgusting, but it’s like he is “offering” them to give him a massage or watch him shower, which is messed up & gross, but when this all first came out, I thought he was going to use that as his excuse, that he never forced anyone, he was just harassing them. Not that it makes any of it ok, but now this, him forcing himself into someone’s house, their safe space, and then raping them is horrifying. & I think it sounds like Daryl was dangerously close to being raped as well, and she just so happened to have a friend there. He needs to go to jail. I don’t understand why there is a statue of limitations on sexual assault.

    • greenmonster says:

      You are right. The other actress is Lysette Anthony, if I remember correctly. Weinstein did the same thing to her.
      I also don’t understand why there is a statue of limitation on sexual assault. There shouldn’t be a number of years where rapists can be prosecuted and after that they just can walk free.

      • frisbee says:

        In the UK there is no statute of limitations on sexual assault. After the Jimmy Saville case (I’m not suggesting you look this up, it’s like Wankstain and bloody depression AF) several high profile showbiz men were charged with and found guilty of historic sexual assault due to a police investigation called Operation Yew Tree. That’s what I’m hoping for with Wankstein, they are investigating him here and they have the experience to get convictions, we can only hope they, or indeed anyone, manages to pull this effing bastward down.

  13. greenmonster says:

    “And it didn’t matter. I think that it doesn’t matter if you’re a well-known actress, it doesn’t matter if you’re twenty or if you’re forty, it doesn’t matter if you report or if you don’t, because we are not believed. We are more than not believed—we are berated and criticized and blamed.” I want to wear this on a t-shirt!
    Once again a woman, the star of this effing movie!!!, told people what happened. She even told her good friend and director of the movie and he did nothing. I raise two middle-fingers to male Hollywood.

    • frisbee says:

      I’m currently raising one finger ( they are not worth the effort of my two) to the whole piling, stinking, steaming cess pit, my new motto, “ read more books and don’t give your money to arseholes”.

  14. Talie says:

    Tarantino had power at that point…he could’ve intervened for Daryl and made sure she was taken care of! No wonder he did that lengthy interview with The Times. What a snake.

  15. tracking says:

    I can only hope he goes to jail. If it isn’t too late to prosecute Bill Cosby, certainly isn’t in this case either.

  16. Elle says:

    Ok. We heard the stories. Were is the story that he is behind bars?

  17. Kiki says:

    I really hope he does goes to jail. But the statue of limitations are also in full effect in this case. God, I feel for Annabelle Sciorra and Daryll Hannah because they are really brilliant actors and he would threatened them throughout those years. What a disgusting 🐖.
    And I have said all along that he got names and if he goes down, they are going down with him. This sick psychopath is now suing his own company for his “private property”. I hope he goes to hell 🔥 and there’s that place on Earth. General Prison.

    • babyroxy1969 says:

      The statute of limitations may be up for these ladies, but you can not tell me that someone with this vast history suddenly cleaned up his act and has been “good” for the last 7 years. WHERE ARE THESE LADIES AT??? Thats who we need to come forward NOW.

      • Pamela says:

        Exactly. There have got to be many more recent victims. I hope some of them come forward.
        I worry they won’t because they are scared and may be just starting out. Maybe they haven’t got a big break yet, or maybe they JUST did and don’t want this story to overshadow that bit of success. But hopefully someone will come forward, and maybe it will encourage others. As we have seen, his behaviour was insidious. If the victims can find the strength to come forward, we could see him in court with 20 accusers that ARE NOT past the statute of limitations. That would put him away for a good, long time.

        This is all just so horrifying.

      • Luca76 says:

        Sadly I’m sure some of them at least got the same kind of offer that Rose MacGowan did and took it ( I can’t blame them) . The authorities are going to need to do a search This man is a serial rapist. Of course he did that week long rehab and is now cured so….

    • SK says:

      Also Harvey abused women in the UK, Italy, France… Most countries do not have a Statute of Limitations on sexual assault. So I hope he gets NAILED in the UK or somewhere else. I’ve heard French and Italian jails are particularly horrendous, so my vote goes there.

    • Flaming Oh says:

      Changing the statute of limitation on sex crimes is so necessary to dissuade would be perpetrators. When there is a power/age imbalance it can take so much longer for victims to find the power again to confront their aggressors.

  18. Alexandria says:

    Just wanna add that he also harassed two actresses from my Asian country (Singapore), so you can imagine how widespread his targeting was.

    • Aurelia says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets extradited to the UK for his crimes. Fingers crossed justice will be served.

  19. Natalie S says:

    Tarantino is cancelled as well.

    • Pamela says:

      I am so pissed at QT.

      I have been a fan for years. I have enjoyed his movies. When he released his statement, I wanted to believe him. And I was skeptical but I COULD believe him to an extent.

      But Daryl Hannah’s story leaves no room for any benefit of the doubt. He knew fully, and did nothing, even when he WAS in a position where he could have.

      Really disappointing to see that NONE of these men could be assed to do the right thing.

      • Natalie S says:

        I know. How could Tarantino stand to get on that plane knowing why Hannah was being left behind. What is the point of a movie compared to that.

  20. Lucy2 says:

    How terrifying. Both of these women are brave for coming forward.
    Tarantino, any further comment?

  21. babyroxy1969 says:

    I want the child predators outed next.

  22. Indiana Joanna says:

    I love Annabella as an actress and wondered why she seemed to have disappeared early in her career. I also loved her in one of that Law and Order Criminal Intent series.

    It’s so cruel that these women who were viciously attacked had to suffer more for being Weinstein’s prey. He needs to be prosecuted, tried and sent prison.

  23. Louise says:

    You can almost feel Annabella’s pain through her words. Ive been thinking about it for days.

    • JG says:

      Same. All the stories are horrific, but for some reason, hers and Selma Blair’s felt especially heart-wrenching.

    • Lady D says:

      I read her story two days ago, and it’s all I’ve been thinking about. It makes me sick to my stomach reading about her fear.

  24. FHMom says:

    Lock him up. He is a violent predator and he needs prison time. My heart breaks for these women.

  25. magnoliarose says:

    As more victims speak out, I begin to think that the men in Harvey’s inner circle are suspect. If we are getting to the actors and directors, I would like to know what his wingmen were up to all this time.

    Just to reiterate that any actress that worked with Harvey is a victim. Even consensual contact wasn’t actually consensual because it was done out of fear and job security. Look at Harvey and imagine any of these actresses willingly being intimate with him out of physical attraction. It is impossible. He is a bullying brute and can’t claim a great personality to compensate for his appearance or his slovenly behavior.

    It would be terrifying for any woman to admit anything because the different types of relationships he forced are sometimes complex and easily misunderstood. There are people just salivating at the chance to shame an actress, and they don’t owe us their stories, and we should respect that.

    Shame on every single person Daryl Hannah told.

    • frisbee says:

      Exactly, I agree and was saying on a post a few days ago consent and coercion are two mutually exclusive terms and that coercion takes many forms, it can be implicit and it can be implied but it’s still coercion that robbed all of them if their free choice.

    Oh, what, you want to Gretchen Mol her? Stop speculating about women and let them control their own narratives.

    Still waiting (even more now) for QT’s statement. There is no way he’s getting out of this unscatered.

  29. Serene Wolf says:

    When is this prick going to jail?

  30. Pix says:

    So brave of both of these women to speak on the record. This article was so disturbing and Weinstein really does need to pay for his crimes.

    I love how Daryl Hannah told
    Him “fuck off Harvey” and walked away when he asked to feel her breasts.

    I’m so disappointed in Tarantino. It seems like no one was there for Daryl Hannah and she’s freaking Daryl Hannah. Think of how many women with no fame or prestige they must have let just fade away into the night, harmed and humiliated, and with zero compassion for them.
    They treated Daryl Hannah shamefully, just let her be humiliated! So imagine how many other women his team and associates just ignored, like they were nothing.

    I wish Sciorra would file charges against him or maybe the statute of limitations prevents it. She’s strong she even stayed in the industry after that.

    Much respect to these women for standing up, I hope it brings them piece.

    Tarantino was a coward only interested in self-preservation…but then so are most of the men involved in this.

    Oh and special shout out to all the gossip mongerers and press who spread all the “she’s difficult to work with” tales. How does it feel to have done a serial rapist’s bidding?

    The abuse of women is widespread. We are held hostage by economics, religion, and society.

      And abusers have people enabling and helping them, it’s a horrific experience trying to get to safety and keep safe after. It never leaves your mind.

    I too always like Sciorra & wondered what happened to her. Her story was so sad. I’m so angry for her & Hannah & countless others. I want all of the men who knew & did nothing (I’m looking at you Tarantino & so many others) to be called out. I’m not talking about them outing or speaking out on the victims behalf, I’m talking about behind the scenes. As in, let the predators around you know that you won’t put up w/ people being abused anymore.

    In other words, stop issuing statements of support, rather than actions that actually give support.

      “I want all of the men who knew & did nothing (I’m looking at you Tarantino & so many others) to be called out”

      I agree with this, but I think it is extremely sexist to limit it to only men. Men are not the sole protectors of women, or the sole protectors of other men (thinking of the Kevin Spacey thread). ALL human beings need to hold molesters accountable, and I am disgusted with people who continued to work with and support the rapists like Weinstein, Spacey, Polanski, etc. And that includes men AND women. I know that they couldn’t report it without the victim’s consent, because I think it’s also wrong to “out” a victim who doesn’t want to be outed. But the ONE THING they could have done is refuse to work with or support the careers of these criminals.

    I read that New Yorker article and it just broke my heart. I do remember Annabella from Hand that Rocks the Cradle. She was everywhere in the 90s til she wasn’t. She just dropped off the face of the earth. Now we know.

    Go Ronan Farrow. He’s churning out great articles.

  36. Lisa says:

    I loved Annabella on The Sopranos. When I saw her name and his in the same sentence, my heart sank.

  37. Sage says:

    Harvey is a real monster.

    It’s so disturbing that the only reason he’s been exposed is because of money and power.

  38. JRenee says:

    I keep reading and the more I’ve learned, tge more disgusted I get. Annabella, omg! He let himself into Darryl’s room?
    I pray he goes to jail,and off on a private jet somewhere. He’s a sociopath and I believe them!

  39. Sue says:

    The key is to stop supporting these scumbags financially. Don’t go to a Woody Allen movie. Don’t go to a Tarantino movie.

  40. Curiosity says:

    Why is W. still running around free?

  41. SM says:

    That is disturbing. And makes you wonder just how many lives were ruined due to clective silence and how many carriers this pig have ruined? There was a quite widespread story about bad blood between DH and Uma Turman on set of Kill Bill and Daryl being hard to work with. It ws the main story off of the set and promo tour. Was that also Harvey’s doing or was that due to different reactions of Uma and Daryl to Weinstein himself? I believe that Uma had to know about that too.
    Also Ronan Farrow is quickly becoming my favorite person in the entire universe. Strong convictions, the courage to step up for women and professionalism. I think I may be in love

    This is heartbreaking 😥😥
