The (black) legend of Harvey Weinstein does not stop growing. It seems that everyone in Hollywood knew their ways of acting, although decades have passed until people have dared to denounce it. Because the producer was not only apparently engaged in harassing many of the actresses with whom he worked, but his reign of terror extended to blacklist anyone who dared to contradict him. That’s what actresses like Ashley Judd or Mira Sorvino have denounced. And in the support that the actress Tara Strong has given them, we find a reference to Jason Priestley who has revealed a hidden history for more than twenty years.

It all began with the statement of Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings , recognizing that the two actresses, Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino, did not participate in the saga because they were on a Weinstein blacklist . Mira reacted on Twitter with the following words:

I just saw this when I woke up and I started crying. There it is, the confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I always suspected, but of which I was not sure. Thanks, Peter Jackson, for being honest. I have a broken heart.

Tara Strong, a Canadian actress specialized in dubbing animated films and videogames, alluded to her friend Jason Priestley and the possibility that he also formed part of a blacklist:

Desolador… I would not be surprised if this had also happened to my friend Jason Priestley, who punched Weinstein in the face in a club one night.

The confession gave rise to many questions about what had really happened, that the unforgettable Brandon Walsh of Sensation of Life was quick to respond in this chain of tweets:

Of course there is more history… Golden Globes 1995. At the Miramax party. Harvey told me I had to leave. He was leaving me when he took me by the arm and asked me “what are you doing?” I said, “You told me to leave and I’m leaving.” “I did not tell you to leave,” he replied. «You just told me to leave… right there». I repeated it once more. We were warming up. Then, he grabbed me harder and said, “Why do not we go talk about it?” That was all I needed to hear. “I’m not going anywhere with you,” I said, and I pushed and punched him with my right hand in the face. Suddenly, there were security guards pulling us away and I was escorted out of the party.

It is difficult not to ask, in light of all the information that is coming out about the case of the producer, how many people in the film industry have been harmed by their practices in these decades in which their power made it seem untouchable.
