Quentin Tarantino breaks silence on longtime partner Harvey Weinstein

Director Quentin Tarantino shared his preliminary feelings on the ongoing Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, saying he has been "stunned and heartbroken" and still needs "a few more days to process" before releasing an official statement.

Actress Amber Tamblyn - who worked with Tarantino on Django Unchained - posted the director's statement on social media.

"For the last week I've been stunned and heartbroken about the revelations that have come to light about my friend for 25 years Harvey Weinstein".

The hashtag #WomenBoycottTwitter has so far gained the support of a number of high profile figures, including Kelly Ellis, Anna Paquin, John Cusack, Mark Ruffalo and Kathy Griffin. The report was followed by claims from more women - including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale, and Angelina Jolie - that Weinstein had harassed them too.

Tarantino has done all of his films with Weinstein, beginning with "Pulp Fiction" in 1994 through the producers then-company Miramax.

Weinstein was also slated to work with Tarantino on his upcoming Charles Manson film focused on the Tate family murders.

In the next few days, we should expect to hear more from Tarantino on the Weinstein allegations. "Mr Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual".
