Actress Daryl Hannah: I Was Punished After Telling Tarantino, ‘Powerful People’ About Weinstein Sexual Harassment


Actress Daryl Hannah accused Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing her at the Cannes Film Festival, during which he “pounded on her hotel room door “leaving her no choice” but to “escaped out a back entrance.”

Hannah, who starred in the Weinstein-produced cult classic Kill Bill filmstold the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow that her second encounter with Weinstein came years after the Cannes encounter. Hannah said Weinstein rushed into her hotel room, “like a raging bull,” during the Kill Bill Vol. 2 Italian première in Rome. Weinstein told her to put on a dress and head downstairs to a party.

Hannah said when she arrived downstairs there was no party. “And it wasn’t even like there had been a party there. I didn’t see drinks around,” she recalled. As she turned back to the elevator, Hannah said she saw Weinstein standing in the entrance. He asked her if her breasts were real and if he could feel them. She responded, “No, you can’t,” and he allegedly said, “At least flash me then.”

Hannah said she told a producer for the film, anybody in power who would listen, and the film’s director and longtime Weinstein collaborator Quentin Tarantino — but she said no one seemed to care, and she was subsequently punished for speaking out.
