Harvey Weinstein Net Worth: Harvey Weinstein is an American film producer and film studio executive who has a net worth of $200 million. Harvey Weinstein was born March 19, 1952 in Flushing, New York. He is best known as co-founder of Miramax Films. Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob have been co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company, their film production company, since 2005. Weinstein won an Academy Award for producing Shakespeare in Love and earned 7 Tony Awards for producing a variety of winning plays and musicals including The Producers, Billy Elliot the Musical and August: Osage County. Their film company went on to produce numerous other box office hits including Pulp Fiction, The English Patient and Good Will Hunting. In 2004 Weinstein was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in recognition of his contributions to the British film industry. Harvey Weinstein's career has been riddled with Praise, but also with criticism. Weinstein has been criticized by some for the techniques he allegedly applied in his business dealings, specifically for such deeds as 'campaigning' for Oscars for his films during Oscar season, which led to a ban on such campaigns by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Weinstein cultivated a reputation for ruthlessness and fits of anger. Reportedly, he once put a New York Observer reporter in a headlock and threw him out of a party. On another occasion, Weinstein publicly criticized director Julie Taymor and her husband during a disagreement over a test screening of her movie Frida. He was also accused of hassling Sydney Pollack on his deathbed about the release of the film The Reader. In another controversial move, in 2009, Weinstein publicly voiced opposition to efforts to extradite Roman Polanski from Switzerland to the U.S. regarding the 1977 charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old, to which Polanski had pled guilty before fleeing the country. In 2013, New York Post film critic Kyle Smith accused Harvey Weinstein of making numerous anti-Catholic films, including Priest (1994), The Butcher Boy (1997), The Magdalene Sisters (2002) and Philomena (2013).
