Quentin Tarantino Claims He Knew Nothing About Harvey Weinstein; He’s “stunned and heartbroken” and Needs More Time To Process

I was a horrible poker player in my college years, but that’s quite a poker face Quentin Tarantino is making in that photo! If you play the odds or take probabilities into account when gauging Quentin Tarantino’s sincerity with regards to the Harvey Weinstein situation, you have to assume those odds are stacked heavily against the multi-Oscar-winning director.

If Tarantino was a woman in his 60s or 70s when making “Pulp Fiction” or “Reservoir Dogs,” his seemingly muted response would have far more weight, but I have a hard time believing that over 25 years, he was thoroughly clueless as to what Harvey Weinstein was doing behind closed doors.

From the LA Times:

“For the last week I’ve been stunned and heartbroken about the revelations that have come to light about my friend for 25 years Harvey Weinstein,” Tarantino said Thursday night in a statement tweeted by Amber Tamblyn.

Either through Miramax or Weinstein Co., the embattled industry executive has produced all of Tarantino’s films since 1994’s “Pulp Fiction.”

Tamblyn also explained that she was the messenger of the day after “a long dinner with my friend Quentin Tarantino,” who asked her to share his words.
