Lupita Nyong'o Weinstein Tried Undressing In Front of Me

Lupita Nyong'o Weinstein Tried Undressing In Front of Me

The London investigation is related to an incident that took place in the 1980s, police previously told CNN.

The Los Angeles Times reported the woman is a 38-year-old Italian actress who spoke to the newspaper on Thursday.

Weinstein allegedly appeared "without warning" in the lobby of her hotel later in the evening and asked to come up to her room.

The woman's attorney, David M. Ring, planned to release further details on Friday.

Additionally, half of young women (48%) said that they had been made to feel uncomfortable by jokes of a sexual nature, and 38% had experienced inappropriate touching.

"These women may not have realized it, but they gave my client the support and encouragement to hold Weinstein accountable for this frightful act". "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

In recent weeks, dozens of women have accused him of sexual assault and harassment. NY police have already launched two active sex crime investigations into Weinstein, and London's Metropolitan Police are looking into allegations made by three other women.

Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o has added her voice to sexual harassment and abuse allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, saying she had an encounter with him in 2011 at his home in CT.

Director Quentin Tarantino says he knew about a few instances of improper conduct by producer Harvey Weinstein and wishes he had done more.

Actress Lupita Nyong'o attends the Calvin Klein Collection fashion show during New York Fashion Week on September 7, 2017 in New York City.

Argento was one of the original six, accusing Weinstein of rape in France 20 years ago, when she 21.

Weinstein, 65, has not been seen in public since last week. He already has been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Producers Guild and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Weinstein was also stripped of a prestigious fellowship by the British Film Institute and Havard University's W.E.B. "But I made a quiet promise to myself to never ever work with Harvey Weinstein", she said. "It felt like both a threat and a reassurance at the same time; of what, I couldn't be sure", she said. "That's the egg on my face right now", said Tarantino.

Tarantino also called on Hollywood to alter its culture, saying men have "almost tolerated" a "Jim Crow-like system" that's harmed women. Don't just give out statements.

The actress penned an Op-Ed for The New York Times chronicling her experience with the producer at the start of her career.

Once at his house, Nyong'o alleges Weinstein led her into a bedroom and offered to give her a massage. She says that is when she "personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of his trousers".

In the full essay, Nyong'o detailed several other encounters with Weinstein - which you can read here.
