Amber Tamblyn explains how she convinced Tarantino to speak out against Harvey Weinstein



- Amber Tamblyn said that over “a very long conversation and dinner” with Tarantino, he complained how damaging the news of Weinstein’s predatory behavior was to him and his films. (Weinstein has produced/released just about every Tarantino picture)

- Tamblyn said Weinstein was a father figure to Tarantino, which only made the news tougher for the filmmaker.

- She says "after a couple of bourbons" she finally convinced him that he had to talk to The Times about what he knew.

- She told him “If you care about the women that he harmed directly that you love, do it for them. Do it for me. If you care about me, do it for me. He knew about Uma Thurman and Mira Sorvino, and he talked a lot about that. And that’s when he really said, ‘You’re right.’”
