Harvey Weinstein scandal: Sopranos actress accuses producer of rape

29 October 2017

Ms Sciorra claims she was attacked following a dinner to celebrate finishing the 1993 film The Night We Never Met for Miramax, Weinstein's then company.

"I was very forthcoming about my experiences all these years", she said. They often saw each other at events, dinners and screenings, and after one such evening in NY, she said, Weinstein offered to give her a ride home. And when she told people what happened, it didn't help.

"Mr. Weinstein unequivocally denies any allegations of non-consensual sex", a spokesperson for the director said in response to the allegations.

A few minutes later, someone knocked at the door. When she opened it, Harvey allegedly forced the door open and came inside. "And he pushed the door open", she told The New Yorker. He "walked in like it was his apartment, like he owned the place, and started unbuttoning his shirt". And I was in a nightgown.

"And to the couple of women who came up to me today and gave me anonymous love letters, I'd like to say, this is for you", Ashley added. "He said, 'I have impeccable timing, ' and then he said, 'This is for you, '" she told the magazine.

She was there in the early 2000s, when Weinstein spotted her in the hotel, commended her work and asked for her room number to schedule a meeting. "You've got to go".

But Weinstein wouldn't budge. Hannah, who said she didn't know of Weinstein's reputation at the time, agreed.

"He shoved me onto the bed, and he got on top of me". He just burst in like a raging bull.

"I said, 'No, you can't!' And then he said, 'At least flash me, then.' And I said, 'F*** off, Harvey'".

"And then he attempted to perform oral sex on me".

"I struggled, but I had very little strength left in me".

Weinstein left, and Sciorra said she never spoke of the rape and never went to police.

Actress Daryl Hannah - who appeared in Kill Bill: Volume 1, which Weinstein produced - also said the powerful Hollywood executive aggressively pursued her but she managed to dodge his advances.

Ms Sciorra told the magazine that Weinstein forced his way into her NY apartment and assaulted her in the early 1990s.
