Harvey Weinstein sues his own company

Harvey Weinstein sues his own company

London [U.K.], October 26: Norwegian model and actress Natassia Malthe has accused studio mogul Harvey Weinstein of raping her in a London hotel room after BAFTA ceremony in 2008.

Natassia Malthe, 43, revealed the alleged assault at a Wednesday press conference alongside her attorney Gloria Allred, claiming that Weinstein showed up at her hotel room late that night, the Associated Press reports.

Judd's interview with Sawyer will also mark the first time any of Weinstein's alleged victims have spoken on TV about their charges.

Allred said Hayleyi is one of many women she represents who are making serious allegations against Weinstein. "Your first instinct of course is to say no, and I tried, but clearly it didn't work", she said. It was not consensual. He did not use a condom.

"I believe that there is hope and help for everyone", she explained earlier in the interview.

"I would not have wanted anyone to do that to me, even if that person had been a romantic partner", she said. I was mortified. I was in disbelief and disgusted.

When Weinstein reached out at a later date, he said he received excellent feedback about her and wanted to meet again, she agreed to a meeting at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo, she said.

Judd was filming the movie Kiss the Girls when Weinstein invited her to a Beverly Hills hotel for "a business appointment". After refusing, Weinstein told her the only way to make it in Hollywood was to have sex with him.

It also states that a "facility named to honor a person shall not be renamed except for compelling reasons". More than 130 public schools nationwide are named after Confederate leaders, largely in the South.


'Good job kid, you got out of there - well done, ' she added.

She says she refused and when she later called him to turn down a role in one of his films, he became angry and verbally abusive.

The former Miramax and Weinstein Company co-founder's fall has inspired something of a reckoning in Hollywood, with stars like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lupita Nyong'o sharing their experiences with harassment, while men like James Toback, Oliver Stone, Val Kilmer and more are accused of sexual misconduct. While other women might've been warned about the producer's behavior, Judd said, "I had no warning".

Weinstein persisted, she said, and she ended up giving him an "awkward" halfhearted massage.

Huett, her lawyer said, chose to come forward to "be a beacon for other women" to encourage real change, and that will only come if perpetrators are subject to financial consequences.

"I had no warning", Judd said of Weinstein's reputation for sexual harassment prior to meeting him. He has "unequivocally denied" all allegations of non-consensual sex.

Interviewer Diane Sawyer showed a photo of Judd and Weinstein, taken after the attack, in which Judd is smiling.
