Multiple women have come forward with allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

The accusations, which some in the entertainment industry say have been common knowledge for some time, were uncovered last week by multiple news outlets. The number of accusers continues to grow, as women who have had interactions with the award-winning producer over the years begin to tell their stories.

On October 8, because of the various reports of sexual harassment and assault, The Weinstein Company fired its co-founder. The company released a statement announcing his termination because of “new information about misconduct.”

On October 10, Weinstein’s spokesperson Sallie Hofmeister released a statement in response to the recent developments, saying he denies all of the allegations.

Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counseling and rebuilding his life.

Here’s a list of women who have came forward publicly accusing Weinstein of sexual misconduct:

Gwyneth Paltrow

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow told The New York Times in an October 10 article that Weinstein tried to sexually assault her when she was 22-years old. She had been hired by Weinstein to be the lead actress in the adaptation of Emma when the encounter happened.

Paltrow said that Weinstein asked her to come to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting. But when she arrived, the producer placed his hands onto her and asked her to go to the bedroom for a massage.

“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” she told The Times during an interview.

Paltrow said she refused his sexual advances and told her boyfriend at the time, Brad Pitt, about it. Pitt confirmed to The Times that he confronted Weinstein at a Hollywood premiere, telling him to never put his hands on her again. After the encounter, Weinstein allegedly warned Paltrow not to tell anyone else about the incident.

“I thought he was going to fire me,” she said.

Paltrow said she came forward with her allegations against Weinstein because: “We’re at a point in time when women need to send a clear message that this is over. This way of treating women ends now.”


Angelina Jolie

Actress Angelina Jolie sent an email to The Times saying that she “had a bad experience” with Weinstein dating back to her youth.

Jolie said that as a result of the unwanted advances inside a hotel room, she elected to “never work with him again” and was sure to warn others about his behavior when they did, she said.

“This behavior towards women in any field, any country, is unacceptable,” she wrote in the email.

A New York Times article on the accusations against Weinstein leads with the story of actress Ashley Judd‘s experience with the producer.

The incident happened 20 years ago, Judd told The Times, and it was at the beginning of her career. She allegedly met Weinstein at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what she expected to be a breakfast meeting.

When she got to the hotel, though, she said she was sent up to Weinstein’s room. As she walked in, Weinstein was allegedly in a bathrobe, and he asked her if she wanted a massage, or if she could watch him shower.

“How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?” Judd told The Times, adding that women in the entertainment industry had been talking about Weinstein’s misconduct “for a long time.”

Weinstein reportedly offered Judd a shoulder rub instead, but she declined before he asked her to pick out his clothing for the day from a nearby closet.

“I said no, a lot of ways, a lot of times, and he always came back at me with some new ask,” Judd said to The Times. “It was all this bargaining, this coercive bargaining.”


Lauren Sivan

Another accusation came from 39-year-old Lauren Sivan. She was an anchor on Long Island 12, a cable channel in New York at the time, and subsequently went on to work for Fox News Channel and KTLA. Sivan came forward with her story of Weinstein’s advances to Yashar Ali of The Huffington Post.

In Ali’s article, Sivan spoke of an incident 10 years ago where Weinstein masturbated in front of her.

Sivan said she went with others to Cipriani, a popular Italian restaurant in Manhattan, and met with Weinstein. After eating together, the group went to a Cuban-themed club/restaurant called Socialista. Weinstein was an investor in the business at the time, and the group congregated in the club area. At one point, Weinstein allegedly asked Sivan if she wanted to go on a tour of the restaurant. She “reluctantly agreed” and went downstairs alone with Weinstein, telling her friend to come check on her if she didn’t return in 10 minutes.

Once downstairs in the restaurant, Weinstein and Sivan made small talk as they walked into the kitchen. With the restaurant closed at the time,Weinstein leaned in for a kiss, Sivan told Ali. She said that she rejected the kiss, telling Weinstein that she had a serious boyfriend.

“Well, can you just stand there and shut up?” Weinstein allegedly asked Sivan.

Sivan said she was unable to get past Weinstein as he got exposed his genitals and started masturbating. She told Ali that she was in shock and wasn’t sure what to do or say, adding that the ordeal didn’t last too long.

Sivan said that Weinstein ejaculated into a potted plant nearby. When her friend came looking for her, she was halted by a security guard at first, but ended up getting to the lower level and greeted the pair as they left the kitchen.

The Weinstein Company and Weinstein’s former attorney, Lisa Bloom, didn’t provide comment to Ali for his story when requested.


Lucia Stroller-Evans

Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman and co-founder of Weinstein Co., attends the second day of the annual Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference, July 12 in Sun Valley, Idaho.

Lucia Evans (formerly Lucia Stroller) was an aspiring actress when she and Weinstein first met. She told The New Yorker‘s Ronan Farrow that she was approached by Weinstein at a New York City club in 2004. It was the summer before her senior year in college, and she gave Weinstein her number for networking purposes.

However, Weinstein allegedly used that number to call her late at night asking to meet. She told Farrow that she continuously declined but agreed to do readings during the day for a casting agency.

As she arrived at the casting agency, Evans said she was led into an office that had exercise equipment and food boxes on the floor. Weinstein was there alone, and she said, “The type of control he exerted, it was very real. Even just his presence was intimidating.”

Evans recalled to Farrow that Weinstein told her she’d be great in the TV show Project Runway, a show he was a producer on, if she would lose weight. She said suddenly, Weinstein proceeded to sexually assault her, allegedly forcing her to perform oral sex on him as she protested.

“I said, over and over, ‘I don’t want to do this, stop, don’t,'” she told Farrow, adding that he overpowered her and she “gave up.” “I tried to get away, but maybe I didn’t try hard enough. I didn’t want to kick him or fight him.”

Evans said she developed an eating disorder because of the alleged assault and “ruined several really good relationships” because of it. She and Weinstein made contact “occasionally” after that, she said.


Asia Argento

Italian actress Asia Argento poses as she arrives on May 17 for the screening of the film ‘Ismael’s Ghosts’ (Les Fantomes d’Ismael) during the opening ceremony of the 70th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, southern France.

Italian-born actress Asia Argento worked with Weinstein in the crime drama B. Monkey, which was released in the U.S. in 1999. Argento told Farrow in The New Yorker article that Weinstein sexually assaulted her while they worked on the film.

Argento, 21-years old at the time, said she was just rising in the entertainment industry when one of Weinstein’s producers invited her to what she thought was a party organized by Miramax at a hotel on the French Riviera. But when she arrived, she realized there was no party, and the producer led her upstairs to Weinstein’s empty hotel room.

Once in the room, the producer left her alone with Weinstein, she told Farrow.

The conversation started with him giving praise for her past work, but things got out of hand quickly, she claims. Weinstein allegedly left the room and returned wearing only a robe and held a bottle of lotion in his hands, asking her to give him a massage. Argento “reluctantly agreed” to perform the massage, during which she claims he pulled her skirt up and performed oral sex on her, despite asking him to stop.

“It wouldn’t stop, it was a nightmare,” she told Farrow emotionally. She said that she was the one who felt guilty because of the incident, especially because she didn’t fight him off.

In the months that followed, Weinstein continued to contact Argento, offering “expensive gifts.” Eventually, the two formed a relationship and often went out for dinners and had consensual sex “multiple times over the course of the next five years.”

Argento told Farrow that she felt she had to have sex with Weinstein or he would “ruin her career.”

In 2000, Argento wrote, directed and acted the movie Scarlet Diva. In one scene, her character is approached by a large producer in a hotel room, asking her for a massage and subsequently assaulting her. She said that after the film’s release, she was approached by multiple women who recalled similar encounters with Weinstein.


Miro Sorvino

Actress Mira Sorvino attends The Weinstein Company and Netflix Golden Globe Party, presented with FIJI Water, Grey Goose Vodka, Lindt Chocolate, and Moroccanoil at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 8 in Beverly Hills, California.

Actress Mira Sorvino has been in numerous Weinstein films over the years and told Farrow that the producer sexually harassed her multiple times, once trying to coerce her into a sexual relationship.

The relationship between the two started in 1995, and similar to other accusers, she found herself alone with Weinstein inside a hotel room. Sorvino said that Weinstein massaged her shoulders, making her “very uncomfortable” before he tried to get more physical with her.

Weinstein was married to former assistant Eve Chilton at the time, and Sorvino said she claimed she couldn’t have a relationship with a married man because it was against her religion. Regardless, Sorvino told Farrow that Weinstein called her after a few weeks late in the evening, offering to meet up at a diner. Instead, he told her that he was coming over to her apartment before handing up.

Sorvino said she called a male friend and asked him to come over and pose as her boyfriend, but he didn’t make it by the time Weinstein was at her front door. She told him her new boyfriend was on his way, and Weinstein left.

Another encounter between the two involved Weinstein masturbating in front of her, she told Farrow. She said that she never came forward with the accusations because Weinstein was instrumental in her career, and she felt “afraid and intimidated” that publicly revealing the incidents would have a negative impact.


Ambra Battilana Gutierre

A post shared by Ambra Battilana Gutierrez ♉️♏️ (@ambrabgutierrez) on

Farrow uncovered a New York Police Department recording from a 2015 sting after Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez filed a report after Weinstein allegedly sexually assaulter her.

In the recording, Weinstein tells Gutierrez in the hallway of the Tribeca Grand Hotel that he was going to take a shower in his hotel room while she sits and watches. Gutierrez continuously says she didn’t want to and adds, “Yesterday was kind of aggressive for me.”

During that incident, according to The New Yorker, Gutierrez told police that Weinstein sat with her in his office with her modeling portfolio. Suddenly, he started touching her breasts and “lunged at her.” At one point, Weinstein allegedly tried to put his hand up her skirt while she continuously said no. He finally stopped and told her that his assistant would give her tickets to a Broadway play he was producing for that evening, Farrow’s article in The New Yorker said. But instead of going to the show, Gutierrez went to police and reported the assault.

In the sting recording from the following day, Weinstein tells Gutierrez not to embarrass him at the hotel, and he vows to “never see” her again after the incident.

“I’m not going to do anything, I swear on my children, please come in,” Weinstein says, ordering her to come into the room to watch him bathe. “On everything, I’m a famous guy. Please come in now for one minute.”

“Yesterday you touched by breasts,” Gutierrez says at one point, with Weinstein replying that he’s “used to that.”

Listen to the shocking audio below:


The sting was reportedly set up by NYPD when Weinstein called Gutierrez hours after the alleged sexual assault, sounding frustrated that she didn’t end up coming to the Broadway play. The plan was for Gutierrez to meet with Weinstein the next day, agreeing to attend the play while wearing a wire in an effort to get a confession from him.

The two ended up meeting at a hotel bar, and Weinstein allegedly invited her up to his hotel room. In the hallway outside of his room, Gutierrez said no to going in and watching him shower. They get as far as outside of his room before she refuses to go any further. Eventually, Weinstein agrees to let her go on her way, but not before he pleads with her.

Weinstein was never charged in the incident, but would have likely faced third-degree sexual abuse. The reason police never charged Weinstein, according to The New Yorker, was because background information about Gutierrez’s past came out in tabloids shortly after, and it included past sexual assault allegations where she ended up declining to cooperate with prosecutors. After about two weeks of investigating her allegations against Weinstein, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office declined to file charges.

A statement released from the D.A.’s office back in 2015 said that the case was “taken seriously from the outset” and was “thoroughly” investigated.

This case was taken seriously from the outset, with a thorough investigation conducted by our Sex Crimes Unit. After analyzing the available evidence, including multiple interviews with both parties, a criminal charge is not supported.

Gutierrez declined to comment in The New Yorker story, but a source told Farrow that the two parties settled and she signed a “highly restrictive nondisclosure agreement.”


Tomi-Ann Roberts

Harvey Weinstein Sexual Harassment Allegations

In a New York Times article published days after the initial accusations against Weinstein, other women came forward with similar experiences. One of those women is Tomi-Ann Roberts, who was a 20-year-old junior in college when she met Weinstein in 1984. She worked as a waitress during the summer and had hoped to start a career in acting.

One night, Weinstein was in the restaurant and implored her to audition for a movie that he was planning to direct. He even went as far as sending her scripts, she said, and asked her to meet him to discuss the role.

As Roberts arrived at the place Weinstein was staying, she told The Times that he was naked in a bathtub. Roberts said that Weinstein asked her to get naked for him because the actress that she was going to portray had a topless scene in the film.

Roberts accused Weinstein of saying that if she didn’t take off her top in private, she wouldn’t be able to do it on film. After the comments from Weinstein, she said she stormed out of the residence, telling him that she was “too prudish.”

Nowadays, Roberts teaches psychology at Colorado College and is researching in sexual objectification. She said in The Times story that her interest in the topic dates back to her encounter with Weinstein.


Katherine Kendall

Actor Naveen Andrews poses with Katherine Kendall at the after party for “The Notorious Bettie Page” hosted by Picturehouse and Interview magazine at club Bed on April 10, 2006 in New York City.

Also in the article, actress Katherine Kendall recalled an encounter with Weinstein in which he asked her to give him a massage while he was in a robe. The alleged incident took place in 1993 when she was 23. In a meeting set up by Kendall’s agent, Weinstein reportedly provided her scripts for the movie Beautiful Girl and invited her to a screening of it.

However, the screening turned out to be a trip alone with Weinstein to a Manhattan movie theater. On the way to the cinema, Kendall said Weinstein asked her to stop at his apartment to “pick something up.”

Kendall walked into his apartment and thought that he’d be keeping it professional as he made her a drink and the two spoke about movies.

“I thought, he’s taking me seriously,” she told The Times.

Weinstein went to the bathroom and came back in just a robe, requesting her to give him a massage, she said. He explained to her that “everybody does it,” citing other notable people who gave him massages. Kendall said she refused, but he came back naked and continued insisting.

“He literally chased me,” she said to the publication. “He wouldn’t let me pass him to get to the door.”

Kendall said Weinstein asked if he would “at least show her breasts, if nothing else,” but she continued her refusal and left the apartment.


Judith Godreche

Actress Judith Godreche also accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct back during the 90s. She told The Times that she received an invite from Weinstein to attend the Cannes Film Festival in 1996, but didn’t know who he was at the time.

Godreche was 24-years old and already had built a career in France. He invited her to breakfast along with a Miramax executive at a hotel before the festival. Once the executive left, though, Godreche said Weinstein invited her to his hotel room “to see the view” and discuss a marketing campaign.

Once inside the room, Weinstein asked to give her a massage, Godreche said. She said no to the request but he was adamant and argued that massages were “an American custom.”

“The next thing I know, he’s pressing against me and pulling off my sweater,” she said in the article. Godreche was able to pull away from Weinstein and left the suite, she said.

Since the incident, Godreche starred in numerous Miramax films and had a friendly relationship with Weinstein. She said to The Times that she tried to pretend that the encounter never happened.


Emily Nestor

Another accusation came from a former temporary employee of Weinsteins, Emily Nestor. She worked at the front desk for Weinstein’s production company and told The Times that he tried to make sexual advances on her after working for just one day at the company.

Nestor told colleagues that the incident happened in 2014, and Weinstein offered that if she accepted his advances, he would “boost her career.”

Nestor was a law and business school student at the time and accepted an invitation for breakfast from Weinstein at the Peninsula. She accepted because she “did not want to miss an opportunity,” she told co-workers. But as she arrived, she found Weinstein alone in his hotel room.

A memo at The Weinstein Company noted that Nestor claims her boss was “very persistent” even though she refused his advances for over one hour.

“She was disappointed that he met with her and did not seem to be interested in her résumé or skill set,” the document obtained by The Times said.

Nestor never formally brought the encounter to human resources, but had told other company employees about it.


Dawn Dunning

From left to right, Dawn Dunning, Tanya Fischer, Ashley Stanton and Lynne Marie Volk attend the Creative Coalition & friends celebration of the Broadway show “Born Yesterday” at the Nat Sherman Flagship Store on April 14, 2011 in New York City.

Actress Dawn Dunning also came forward with accusations of sexual harassment by Weinstein. She said she met Weinstein in 2003 when she was cast in small acting gigs and was a student in design school.

Dunning was 24-years old at the time and referred to Weinstein as being friendly and professional at first. The two met for lunch a few times, and she was invited by his assistant to a hotel in Manhattan for another meal. Once she got to the restaurant, she was told to go up to his room because a previous meeting was running late.

However, there was no meeting in the first place, and Dunning saw Weinstein in a robe standing behind a table with contracts for three films. She said that he told her she would be ablge to sign them only if “she would have three-way sex with him.”

Dunning told The Times that she assumed he was joking, but Weinstein got angry, telling her that she would “never make it in the business” because “this is how the business works.”

Dunning was able to get out of the room, and she told her father about the incident a few months later. She ended up becoming a costume designer after the incident.


Emma de Caunes

French actress Emma De Caunes poses during a photocall for the TV series “Ransom” as part of the MIPCOM (The world’s entertainment content market), on October 17, 2016 in Cannes, southeastern France.

French-born actress Emma de Caunes met Weinstein in 2010 at a party at the Cannes Film Festival in France. The two exchanged conversation and contact information, and Weinstein asked her to lunch in Paris a few months later, she told Farrow.

At the lunch meeting, De Caunes said Weinstein offered her a role in an upcoming film “with a prominent director.” She said that Weinstein invited her to his hotel room because he couldn’t remember the film’s title, but had the book of it back at the hotel.

Once she arrived at the room with Weinstein, she said that she got a phone call from a friend and saw him head into the bathroom. As she hung up the phone, De Caunes heard the shower running and suddenly Weinstein walked out naked with an erection.

“What are you doing?” De Caunes told Farrow she asked.

Weinstein told her to lay on the bed, adding that many others women had done it before, De Caunes said. She refused to do so, leaving the room and heading down to the lobby, where she sat physically shaking for a number of minutes, she said. Weinstein continuously called de Caunes and offered her gifts in the hours that followed.


Rosanna Arquette

US actress Rosanna Arquette poses for a portrait session during the luncheon honouring French director Agnes Varda and “Photograffeur”/artist JR at the Residence de France, on October 9.

Actress Rosanna Arquette told Farrow that she had similar encounter with Weinstein during the early 1990s. She said that she was meeting Weinstein for dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where she intended to pick up a new film script.

Once she arrived at the hotel, Arquette said that she was told to go upstairs to Weinstein’s hotel room. When she arrived, Weinstein was in a robe and said he needed a massage, grabbing her hand and putting it onto his neck.

Arquette said she pulled her hand away, but he grabbed it again and put it near his visibly-erect penis.

“My heart was really racing,” the actress told Farrow, adding that she refused. “I was in a fight-or-flight moment.”

After her refusal, Weinstein allegedly told Arquette that her career would suffer as a result, and she believes she lost out on numerous roles because of it.


Jessica Barth

Actress Jessica Barth arrives for the movie premiere TED presented by Universal Pictures and MRC at Grauman’s Chinese theatre on June 21, 2012 in Hollywood, California.

Another actress, Jessica Barth, recalls a similar encounter with Weinstein after meeting him at a 2011 Golden Globes party. She told Farrow that he invited her to a business meeting at the Peninsula.

When Barth arrived to his room, she said Weinstein told her he just wanted to talk about “career stuff.” But he ordered champagne and sushi from room service, and she claims he demanded a naked massage in bed while offering to cast her in a film at the same time.

Barth said she refused and moved toward the door, but Weinstein “lashed out,” telling her that she needed to “lose weight” to compete with other actresses.

He not the actresses needs to lose weight and get a real wife who wants to be with him and stop assaulting the young women. Sounds like Billy Cosby. Too bad. Women know not to go to a person’s house/room, but may think they will be ok.

You could easily replace Weinstein with Trump and it would make total sense. Tacky, greasy old guy relying on his notoriety because he has no game. Super creepy.
