"Pulp Fiction" was Harvey Weinstein's breakout hit. The film, financed by Weinstein's studio Miramax and directed by Quentin Tarantino, was nominated for seven Oscars. Tarantino went on to work with Miramax, and later The Weinstein Company, on more films.
"Pulp Fiction" star Uma Thurman told The New York Times in Feb. 2018 that in the 1990s, Weinstein attempted to force himself on her in a London hotel room.Thurman said she then arranged a meeting with Weinstein and said: "If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you."

"Beautiful Girls," 1996
Thurman also worked with Weinstein on "Beautiful Girls," as did Mira Sorvino.
Sorvino said that in 1995, Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her, massaging her shoulders and "chasing" her around. She also said that Weinstein once showed up at her door after midnight, and only left when she told him her boyfriend was coming. Sorvino told the New Yorker that she believes her career has suffered because of the incident. Later, Peter Jackson confirmed this was true.
Gwyneth Paltrow was 22 when she was cast in her first major role in Miramax's "Emma."
Paltrow told The New York Times that at the time, Weinstein put his hands on her and suggested they head to his hotel bedroom for massages. She said she rejected his advances and told then-boyfriend Brad Pitt, who confronted Weinstein. Pitt's rep confirmed her account to the Times.
"The English Patient," 1996
War drama "The English Patient," starring Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas, received 12 Academy Award nominations and won nine.
Weinstein was behind both highbrow, critically acclaimed movies and commercially successful blockbusters. He was an executive producer for "Scream" and its sequels.
"Good Will Hunting," 1997
"Good Will Hunting," about a young man with a genius-level IQ who chooses to work as a janitor at MIT, cemented Weinstein's place as an ally to its breakout stars, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
When the Weinstein scandal broke, the two were initially criticized for not speaking out against him sooner, but they both denounced the producer.

"Shakespeare in Love," 1998
Critical darling "Shakespeare in Love" won Weinstein the Academy Award for Best Picture. Gwyneth Paltrow won Best Actress and was unofficially crowned "the first lady of Miramax" thereafter.
"Playing by Heart," 1998
Angelina Jolie starred in Miramax's "Playing by Heart" in 1998.
Last year, the actress told The New York Times that Weinstein made advances on her in a hotel room in the late 1990s that she rejected.
"I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did," Jolie said. "This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable."
"She's All That," 1999
Miramax also distributed many commercially successful teen movies like "She's All That."
"Music of the Heart," 1999
Meryl Streep starred in "Music of the Heart" as a music teacher at an inner city school. The film marks one of several collaborations between Streep and Weinstein.
"The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring," 2001
"The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" ended up getting distributed by New Line after several months with Miramax, but Weinstein still got an executive producer credit on the blockbuster franchise.
In Dec. 2017, director Peter Jackson said in an interview with New Zealand media outlet Stuff that Harvey and Bob Weinstein specifically told him not to hire Ashley Judd or Mira Sorvino -- who later said they rebuffed Harvey's sexual advances -- for the "Lord of the Rings" movies.

"The Aviator" marks another Miramax collaboration with DiCaprio and Scorsese. The film also starred Kate Beckinsale, who wrote in October on Instagram that when she was 17, Weinstein greeted her in his bathrobe for a meeting in his hotel room. She says she made up an excuse and left.
"It speaks to the status quo in this business that I was aware that standing up for myself and saying no to things, while it did allow me to feel uncompromised in myself, undoubtedly harmed my career," she wrote.
She also said that a few years later, he asked her if he had "tried anything" with her. "I realized he couldn't remember if he had assaulted me or not," she wrote.
"Inglourious Basterds," 2009
