Not everyone in Hollywood turned a blind eye to Harvey Weinstein's ways.
Priestley tweeted on Friday that he punched Weinstein in the face during a confrontation at a 1995 Golden Globes party hosted by Miramax, the production company Weinstein co-founded.
"'95 Golden Globes... at the Miramax Party... Harvey told me I had to leave... I was leaving when he grabbed me by the arm and said, 'What are you doing?' I said, 'You told me leave, I'm leaving,'" Priestley wrote. "'I didn't say you had to leave,' he replied. 'You just told me to leave... right over there,' I tell him once again. Getting heated now. He then grabs me tighter and says, 'Why don't we go outside and talk about this.' That was all I needed to hear."
Priestley continued, "'I'm not going anywhere with you,' I said as I pushed him back and punched him with a right hand to his face. Suddenly, there were security guards pulling us apart and I was escorted out of the party..."

On Friday, Mira Sorvino tweeted her reaction to Peter Jackson's confirmation that the Weinstein brothers orchestrated a smear campaign to blacklist Sorvino and Ashley Judd.
According to E! News, after Canadian star Tara Strong tweeted "a message of sympathy" to Sorvino, Priestley shared the full story in response to Sorvino's tweet.
Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying. There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure. Thank you Peter Jackson for being honest. I’m just heartsick https://t.co/ljK9NqICbm— Mira Sorvino (@MiraSorvino) December 15, 2017
