An Actor actress Mira Sorvino recently reflected on her Oscar-winning performance, the 1995 film ‘Mighty Aphrodite’. Woody Allen directed and Harvey Weinstein produced it.
What did Mira Sorvino say in the Podcast?
In the Thursday episode of Marc Maron’s ‘WTF’ podcast, Mira said that the early career was tainted by her experience. Nevertheless, she also won a Golden Globe for the role.
“It’s so hard to talk about it now because I now have a very different opinion of Woody than I did then. And I blame myself for not investigating further into what happened with Dylan [Farrow],” said Sorvino. She said all this in reference to the abuse she has gone through by her adoptive father.
Further continued, “It really, in a certain way, ruins ‘Mighty Aphrodite’ for me, ruins my Oscar performance, ruins that start of my career, because I treasured it for years and then it’s like, I should have denounced him and I should have known it then. I didn’t know it then but I didn’t look deep enough to actually educate myself to really make an educated opinion at the time. It’s not an excuse, I should have.”
In 2017, she was one of those women who came forward with the allegation of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein.
Did people black list her?
On Harvey’s request, many directors have admitted to black listing her. “It was really tainted. It was so crazy that much of my early career days were tainted by (Allen) and by Harvey Weinstein.
It’s breathtaking, said Sorbonne. The actress also revealed that she is friends with Allen’s daughter Dylan after she owned down her an open letter in 2018.
“She’s an amazing person, and I have no doubt in my mind that [she] is telling the truth,” Sorvino said on the podcast.
Dylan had claimed that Allen molested her when she was just 7. But Allen has been denying the allegations which first surfaced during his explosive 1992 split from Mia. As per People magazine, he was not charged, though a Connecticut prosecutor said there was probable cause for a criminal case. In 2014, Dylan detailed her allegations in a newspaper’s op-ed. (ANI)
