Both women accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct earlier this year. The report sparked a national reckoning with sexual assault and harassment in the months since, with dozens of prominent men falling from their positions of power in entertainment, business, the media and politics.
There was no indication that Mira Sorvino had any issues until Mr. Weinstein read about the complaints in the news.
