Peter Jackson: Harvey Weinstein told me not to cast His Accusers Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino In Lord of the Rings Trilogy

By , USATODAY, 12/15/2017

As the Harvey Weinstein scandal has unfolded, a constant theme has been Weinstein’s accusers claiming that the disgraced mogul threatened to end their careers if they did not submit to his requests.

In a chilling new interview with New Zealand media outlet Stuff, director Peter Jackson recalled that Weinstein told him not to cast actresses Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino, both among Weinstein’s recent accusers, in his Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying,” Sorvino wrote on Twitter, linking to the interview. “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.”

Judd also shared the story on Twitter, writing, “I remember this well.”
