Sorvino was unaware of the alleged harassment until Mira was interviewed by The New Yorker.
In it, she accused Harvey Weinstein of making her uncomfortable at the Toronto International Film Festival in 1995.
He reportedly massaged her shoulders and was "chasing" her around.
She said she feared it had affected her career and Peter Jackson has since said he was told to blacklist Mira Sorvino and Ashley Judd in casting for The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films.
“I recall Miramax [Weinstein’s studio] telling us they were a nightmare to work with and we should avoid them at all costs. This was probably in 1998,” Jackson said of the actresses. “I realize that this was very likely the Miramax smear campaign in full swing.”
