The actress said that Weinstein also told her that he would not let her leave unless she kissed him.
“I said fine and kissed him on the lips. He sort of held my head and made me kiss him, and then he’s like, ‘OK, you can go now. That’s all I wanted. Just do what I say and you can get your way,’ ” she said. The actress went on to say that she had another unhappy encounter with him when she was flying back to New York, after filming was done in Toronto. She said that Weinstein wanted her to travel with him on his private plane.

I always get what I want,” he told the actress when she on boarded the private plane. Luckily for Melissa, there were other actors on the flight as well, so she said she stayed with Shane West throughout the entire time.
