The two are pictured here at the premiere of Weinstein Co.'s "Inglourious Basterds" held on August 10, 2009 in Hollywood, California. Weinstein has been accused of harassment and abuse by dozens of women over the last week, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Léa Seydoux, Cara Delevingne, and Kate Beckinsale, and his longtime collaborator Tarantino has remained quiet on the allegations until now. In a statement shared via Amber Tamblyn's Twitter, Tarantino says he has been "stunned and heartbroken" over all of the allegations, and will make a public statement soon.

Quentin Tarantino has finally made an official statement reacting to the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal.

Before Tweeting the statement, Tamblyn noted how the pair "had a long dinner" where Tarantino asked her to share the statement. She then stated that she would be signing off Twitter along with pal Rose McGowan in order to boycott the site for blocking the "Charmed" actress on Thursday.
