"Afterwards I lay there in complete disgust".

"Step by step, it was a power play to shut me down to do what he wanted to do to me", she explained.

"I had experienced sexual harassment from other powerful men in Hollywood, but my experiences with Harvey were the worst", she said, according to the BBC.

Weinstein has previously issued a statement saying he denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.

Her lawyer, Gloria Allred, has a meeting scheduled with The Weinstein Co.

Asked if NYPD officials have reached out already to request a sit-down, Allred declined to answer.

"It's a civil case and one of her motivations is to kind of clean up Hollywood by holding the (Weinstein) company accountable for the casting couch, which would be a seismic shift in Hollywood", he said. A few days later, at his office, they spoke again, and he offered her a ride home, along with his assistant. Then, she said, he masturbated in front of her.

Haleyi said she first met Weinstein in 2004 at the London premiere of "The Aviator".

But Weinstein got in touch afterward and offered her a job on one of his TV productions in NY. "As a practical matter, they're trying to say the Weinstein Co. had a duty to protect every actress and every woman in the world from sexual misconduct by Weinstein, and that's just not going to fly". She declined and left, feeling "humiliated and stupid" for having been excited about the meeting, she said.

Once back in Los Angeles, Malthe said Weinstein called her to check in about a role she was training and preparing for. They had no contact during production, and after the show wrapped, she sent him an email thanking him for the experience.

They discussed his projects, and he lent her a copy of the book "Tender is the Night" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, she said.

"I wasn't able to do what I normally would do", she told The News.

She said Weinstein kept calling and even showed up unannounced at her apartment in the East Village, bullied his way through the door and pleaded with her to join him in Paris. "I love you, and I understand that you are sick and suffering, and there is help for a guy like you, too, and it's up to you to get that help", Judd said during the conversation with Diane Sawyer. She revealed that before the interview with The New York Times, she told her parents what she was about to do, and her mother had this to say to her: "Go get him". "This is something I did not want", she told The News.

The new movie, they say, will illuminate the "behavior of predatory perpetrators such as Harvey Weinstein and others", and the culture that "enables and protects them".

Following the latest of countless allegations of sexual harassment and assault, Malthe explained to a press conference in NY how Weinstein raped her in a London hotel after a Bafta awards ceremony.

The actress also claimed that she was asked to do a threesome with Weinstein and another woman.

Judd was filming the movie Kiss the Girls when Weinstein invited her to a Beverly Hills hotel for "a business appointment".
