Jason Priestley Allegedly Punched Harvey Weinstein at 1995 Golden Globes Party

Getting heated now. He then grabs me tighter and says "why don't we go outside and talk about this'".

"In the 18 months we developed the Lord of the Rings at Miramax, we had many casting conversations with Harvey Weinstein, Bob Weinstein and their executives".

It comes after filmmaker Sir Peter Jackson insisted Weinstein, 65, told him Ashley and Mira were "difficult to work with", and encouraged him not to cast them in the early 2000s fantasy trilogy.

In his tweets, he claimed that he once punched Harvey Weinstein during a confrontation at a 1995 Golden Globes party hosted by Miramax, a company the producer had co-founded and co-managed at the time.

Considering the MANY stories coming out about how Harvey Weinstein ruined whoever he touched, it's a wonder why Hollywood even tolerated him. The disgraced movie mogul issued a statement on Saturday in response to Peter Jackson's comment that The Weinstein Company urged him to not work with actresses Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd.

Weinstein, an individual we all wish would stay quiet and out of sight for the foreseeable future, took time to refute these accusations, because of course he did.

"We have no direct evidence linking Ashley and Mira's allegations to our Lord of the Rings casting conversations of 20 years ago - but we stand by what we were told by Miramax when we raised both of their names, and we are recounting it accurately". Weinstein himself has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex", but said when the knews broke that "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past has caused a lot of pain, and I sincerely apologize for it".

The change in heart came after Griezmann felt he couldn't abandon the side at a time when they were unable to replace him. Atletico will be able to sign players in January 2018, after serving out a transfer ban.

"I'm really sorry Mira", the director wrote.

"Once you hear negative feedback about somebody, you don't forget it".

Recently, directors Peter Jackson and Terry Zwigoff said that that producer Harvey Weinstein reportedly warned them away from casting Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino.

Sorvino said she "burst out crying" after reading Jackson's revelation.

Priestley revealed the incident on Twitter over the weekend after actress Tara Strong alleged Weinstein might've tried to derail Priestley's career after he punched him in the face.

Sir Peter Jackson has returned serve against Harvey Weinstein.
