Quentin Tarantino, the director of films like Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds among others, admitted he knew for years about disgraced movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein's, alleged misconduct toward women.

In an interview with the New York Times Tarantino said, "I knew enough to do more than I did. There was more to it than just the normal rumours, the normal gossip. It wasn't second-hand. I knew he did a couple of these things,"

"I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him," Tarantino continued.

The Los Angeles police department announced it is investigating Weinstein over a suspected sexual assault in California in 2013.

This comes on the heels of allegations of sexual misconduct and assault from dozens of other women, although he has released a statement "unequivocally" denying having "non-consensual sex".

Speaking to the BBC earlier, LAPD spokesman Sal Ramirez said, "The Los Angeles Police Department's Robbery-Homicide Division has interviewed a potential sexual assault victim involving Harvey Weinstein which allegedly occurred in 2013," 

"The case is under investigation. There is no more information at this time."

California's statute of limitations for the crime of rape sits at 10-years and could lead to a trial if prosecutors decide they have a case against Weinstein.

According to US media, the alleged victim is a 38-year-old Italian model and actress who is reported to have met detectives earlier this week.

California is not the first to investigate these claims, separate investigations are already underway in New York and London.

Actor, Tom Hanks, also weighed in, telling the BBC "We're at a watershed moment, this is a sea change."

"His last name will become a noun and a verb. It will become an identifying moniker for a state of being for which there was a before and an after."
