Oscar victor Lupita Nyong'o accuses Harvey Weinstein of harassment

Sean Young, perhaps best known for her role as Rachael in 1982's Blade Runner, has brought allegations of sexual harassment against disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

One of the roughly dozen women who came forward with accusations of sexual harassment or assault against Donald Trump during the presidential campaign doubts that the uproar over allegations against Harvey Weinstein will lead to lasting change.

"Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but he unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex", a representative for Weinstein told PEOPLE in a statement. She says that Weinstein raped her in the bathroom of her hotel room near Beverly Hills in February 2013 after she attended an Italian film, fashion and art festival in Los Angeles. Soon afterwards, Weinstein invited her to his home under the pretence of watching a film.

Prior to arriving at his home, the pair had lunch at a restaurant nearby where Weinstein insisted several times she drink alcohol, Nyong'o said.

The invitation to screen a movie with Weinstein and his children at his CT home turned into a restaurant lunch where he tried to bully her into drinking alcohol, she wrote, followed by him cutting short her viewing of the movie after 15 minutes and taking her to his bedroom where he offered to give her a massage. "And she told me she thought that was disgusting".

Over the years that followed, he continued to get in touch, Nyong'o said, and when she declined another proposition she felt her career was threatened. I panicked a little and thought quickly to offer to give him one instead: "It would allow me to be in control physically, to know exactly where his hands were at all times", Nyong'o said.

The filmmaker reveals Sorvino told him about Weinstein's unwanted advances, admitting he was aware that his Grindhouse leading lady Rose McGowan had reached a legal settlement with Weinstein following allegations he had been inappropriate with her. Fifteen minutes into the film, Weinstein said he wanted to show her something. She did not see him again until 2013, and by then she had made a promise to herself that she kept: never to work for Harvey Weinstein. In addition to talking to detectives, Ring spoke to reporters Friday, telling them Weinstein "bullied his way into her room", refused to leave and raped her.

She says that she managed to turn him down, and left without eating. It was not. His assistants, she said, had seemed uncomfortable as they set up the logistics with her. I think there will be a lot more stories that will come up.

"At an after-party, he found me and evicted whoever was sitting next to me to sit beside me", she wrote.

"There is going to be - righteously, I think - a pause in the discussion for the women to be heard, meaning that perhaps all men, myself included, should pipe down and not try to explain it, and not try to comment on it, certainly not try to defend it or even try to prosecute it".

Jessica Leeds alleged a year ago that Trump groped her on an airplane in the late-1970s, which the president has repeatedly denied. "I knew he did a couple of these things".

"As actors we are paid to do very intimate things in public". "You have no idea what you are passing up", he said.
