Harvey Weinstein may be awaiting trial for sexual misconduct, but in a recent interview, the shamed Hollywood executive whined about not getting enough attention.

More than 80 women have accused him of sexual assault or harassment to date.

"I feel like the forgotten man. I made more movies directed by women and about women than any filmmaker, and I'm talking about 30 years ago. I'm not talking about now when it's vogue. I did it first! I pioneered it!" he complained to Page Six.

Weinstein made headlines last week after several of his accusers reportedly agreed a settlement worth millions. But his criminal case is still ongoing.

"It all got eviscerated because of what happened," Weinstein continued. "My work has been forgotten, adding that he wants "this city to recognize who I was instead of what I've become."

Weinstein goes on trial for rape Jan. 6 in Manhattan Supreme Court after he was accused and charged with the rape of a longtime lover, who has not been named publicly. He then allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006.

He is charged with five counts of predatory sexual assault, criminal sex act, and rape in the cases and faces up to life in prison if convicted.
