Washington D.C. [USA], Jan. 06 (ANI): Actress Mira Sorvino's father Paul Sorvino is "furious" and wants to "kill" the disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein for sexually harassed his daughter in mid 1990's.

He has gone as far as to threaten to kill him and is adamant that he be jailed for life.

The 78-year-old actor told TMZ, "If I meet him on the street... he oughta hope that he goes to jail, because if we come across I think he'll be lying on the floor, somehow, magically."

"He's gonna go to jail. Oh yeah. That son of a b***h', he continued. 'Good for him if he goes, because if not, he has to meet me. And I will kill the motherf***er. Real simple," he added.

Mira Sorvino was one of the many women, who came forward last year and accused Weinstein of sexually harassing her in a hotel room in the mid-Nineties.

She also accused that Weinstein had a hand in derailing her movie career, which faded in the years after winning an Oscar for 'Mighty Aphrodite'.

The Miramax Films producer deliberately blacklisted Sorvino's Oscar-winning daughter Mira after she rejected his sexual advances.

Later, the 'The Dutch Master' star praised her father in a post on Twitter, by labelling him, "the most loving father' and 'best grandpa ever". (ANI)
