Bob Weinstein Net Worth 2020 – Harvey Weinstein is an Academy Award winning American film producers, who has been accused by many women of sexually assaulting them.
He co-founded an entertainment company, Miramax, with his brother Bob and the company went on to produce number of successful independent films.
Harvey Weinstein was born on March 19, 1952, in Flushing, Queens, New York into a Jewish family. His father, Max Weinstein, was a diamond cutter, while his mother, Miriam Weinstein (née Postel), later served as receptionist in her sons’ company Miramax.
He is the eldest son of his parents and has a brother named Bob with whom he grew up in a housing co-op named Electchester in New York City.
The brothers used to watch movies in the theatre during Saturday afternoons, which spurred their drive to enter the film industry later.
Harvey Weinstein suddenly found himself in an unfavorable spotlight in October 2017, following a report in The New York Times about his alleged history of sexual harassment.
Harvey Weinstein’s first marriage was to his assistant, Eve Chilton, in 1987, following which the couple had three children: Remy, Emma and Ruth. He divorced Chilton in 2004.
In 2007, he married English fashion designer and actress Georgina Chapman with whom he has a daughter named India Pearl and a son named Dashiell.
He attended John Bowne High School in Flushing, and then enrolled into the State University of New York at Buffalo from where he graduated in 1973.
In 1979, Harvey and Bob Weinstein founded the Miramax Films Corporation, named after their parents. Initially designed to distribute small, art-house-type films, Miramax soon developed into a major player in the industry.
Within a decade, the studio had released such critical successes as My Left Foot (1989) and Sex, Lies, and Videotape (1989), with Harvey serving as the outspoken face of the company.
Even after the Walt Disney Company acquired Miramax in 1993, the Weinsteins oversaw a string of acclaimed releases. Pulp Fiction (1994) and Good Will Hunting (1997) struck box office gold, and The English Patient (1996), Shakespeare in Love (1998) and Chicago (2002) all took home the top Oscar prize of Best Picture.
The brothers departed Miramax in 2005 to found The Weinstein Company, a new venture that produced similar results.
The King’s Speech (2010) and The Artist (2011) both claimed Best Picture honors at the Academy Awards, while Silver Linings Playbook (2012), The Butler(2013) and Lion (2016) also found receptive audiences.
In late 2013, Harvey and Bob Weinstein reunited with Miramax through a co-production and co-distribution deal.
