Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino have reacted to the news Harvey Weinstein was found guilty today on two out of five counts in a landmark rape trial.

Today, 67-year-old Weinstein was found guilty after he went on trial in early January facing five charges of rape and sexual assault, all of which he pleaded not guilty to.

A jury of seven men and five women found the disgraced producer guilty on the fifth day of deliberations.

The former mogul has been convicted on two out of five counts – criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree. He was acquitted on others.

Judd had previously accused the Weinstein of sexual harassment in 1998 and for threatening to sabotage her career after she rejected his alleged sexual advances (however a lawsuit was later dismissed in court).

Following his conviction on Monday in New York, Judd posted on Twitter, addressing the women who had testified during the lengthy trial.
