Director Quentin Tarantino admitted in a New York Times interview that he knew about Harvey Weinstein's history of sexual harassment and chose to work with him anyway. Tarantino admitted, “I knew enough to do more than I did. [...] I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard." Tarantino formerly dated actress Mira Sorvino, who informed him of how Weinstein acted to her and other actresses. He was also aware of the settlement that Rose McGowan had reached with the producer.
