Ugh!

We’re hearing more evidence that Harvey Weinstein intentionally derailed Mira Sorvino‘s acting career. As we reported, Peter Jackson revealed the disgraced producer blacklisted both Mira and Ashley Judd from Lord Of The Rings — and now Terry Zwigoff (pictured above) has come forward saying the Miramax exec and his brother, Bob, kept him from casting the 50-year-old actress in Bad Santa.

The 68-year-old filmmaker shared on Twitter:

Weinstein’s lawyer said in a statement to EW:

“Mr. Weinstein denies speaking with Terry regarding casting. That was a Dimension film (Bob Weinstein) and Harvey had nothing to do with it.”

Wow, what a coward.

As for Mira, she’s understandably shaken that Harvey used his power to thwart her career, but she’s touched by all the support she’s received during this time, writing on social media:

Hang in there, bb.
