Judd 'made deal to flee Weinstein advances'

The little-known actress said she didn't move and "played dead" during the attack in London, according to the celebrity news site. After she fought off his advances, she said, the mogul forced himself on her and performed oral sex. He was extremely persistent and physically overpowering. He even pulled my tampon out. I was mortified. I was in disbelief and disgusted.

"It's just who I am", she said.

Malthe brought forth the accusations at a news conference held with her attorney, Gloria Allred, at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in Manhattan.

A rep for the producer said: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein". A few days later, at his office, they spoke again, and he offered her a ride home, along with his assistant. "That's how he rolled", she said.

She said Weinstein didn't call her after the hotel encounter and that it wasn't until she attended a Met Gala after party previous year that she saw him again. "And finally I just said, 'When I win an Oscar in one of your movies, OK?' And he was like, 'Yeah, when you get nominated.' I said, "No, when I win an Oscar.' And then I just fled".

Lexus was a sponsor and had product placement in The Weinstein Co.'s "Project Runway" reality television show. She declined and left, feeling "humiliated and stupid" for having been excited about the meeting, she said. They had no contact during production, and after the show wrapped, she sent him an email thanking him for the experience.

When he returned from Paris, Weinstein asked her to meet at his loft apartment in Soho. She recalled going to his hotel for what she presumed to be a business meeting. They met again at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006 and she offered to help on his productions in NY. She said Weinstein went to the bathroom and emerged wearing only a bathrobe, asked Huett for a massage and wouldn't take no for an answer, so she complied.

"What I would say to Harvey is, I love you and I understand you are sick and suffering", she opened up to Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America on Thursday (26Oct17).

"I think we should constantly be talking about whether or not building walls and scapegoating of minorities is how we want to be represented", Clooney said. "Who was I to tell?"

They watched a little TV, and then Weinstein pounced, she said.

Huett said she finally chose to step forward after reading Ashley Judd's account in the New York Times of an eerily similar run-in with Weinstein and watching dozens of other women describe alleged harassment and assault at the hands of the fallen filmmaker.

Judd also shared that she had "no warning" before she met with Weinstein of his reputation for exhibiting this offensive behavior toward women.

"Vague apologies are not enough".

The Lexus luxury vehicle brand is ending its agreements with The Weinstein Co. after dozens of allegations of sexual harassment and assault against Harvey Weinstein. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan.
