Police Gathering Evidence for Weinstein’s Arrest

The New York police is allegedly gathering evidence for the arrest of Harvey Weinstein. Some police sources said according to the Los Angeles Times that the rape allegations made against Weinstein are credible and they just have to gather all the available evidence against him to issue an arrest warrant.

So, The New York Police Department stated that it received credible evidence from an actress, who accused Weinstein of rapping her twice. The actress, Paz de la Huerta, allegedly told the police that Weinstein sexually abused her in 2010. She revealed what happened to her earlier this month in an interview with Vanity Fair.

The actress claimed that she ran into Weinstein at a hotel bar in Manhattan. Paz said that she and Weinstein first met when she was only 14, while working at the movie Cider House Rules. She said that until meeting at the hotel bar, she had a professional relationship with the producer and at one point Weinstein actually sent her some science-fiction books, saying that she might be ready for a main role in one of his movies. Weinstein offered to give her a ride home and when arriving at her apartment he demanded to come inside for a drink. The actress said that when he got inside, he started to kiss her.

“Immediately when we got inside the house, he started to kiss me and I kind of brushed [him] away,” the star explained. “Then he pushed me onto the bed and his pants were down and he lifted up my skirt. I felt afraid. . . . It wasn’t consensual . . . It happened very quickly. . . . He stuck himself inside me. . . . When he was done he said he’d be calling me. I kind of just laid on the bed in shock,” the star added.

Weinstein kept on calling her, although she asked him to leave her alone. At one point, he just showed up at her apartment. “He hushed me and said, ‘Let’s talk about this in your apartment,'” she said. “I was in no state. I was so terrified of him. . . . I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ He kept humping me and it was disgusting. He’s like a pig. . . . He raped me.”

Dozens of women have accused Weinstein of sexual abuse. Out of these women, 13 have filed sexual assault reports with the police.

However, as imagined, the director never arrived, so Julianna was alone with Seagal in his apartment.

Julianna said that the meeting with Seagal was very scary for her. “He made sure that I saw his gun, which I’d never seen a gun in real life,” the actress confessed. “I got out of there unscathed. … I don’t know how I got out of that hotel room. … I sort of squirmed my way out,” she went on to add. The actress said that Seagal wanted the meeting to be a sexual encounter and he actually had similar tactics with Weinstein, asking her to allow him to give her a massage.

The actress revealed that after she had this experience with Seagal, she went through a similar situation with Weinstein. This happened in 1996. She said that she was brought by another woman to his hotel to give a screen test for a role. Julianna said that she refused to go to Weinstein’s room alone, so the woman accompanied her. The actress said that Weinstein opened the door in his bathrobe and he had dinner for two prepared in the room.

However, Quentin also said that he regretted that he did nothing about it. The director said in an interview with The New York Times that he knew enough about his longtime friend and collaborator. “I knew enough to do more than I did,” he said.

“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” the star went on to add. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.” Tarantino said that he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s-era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. … What I did was marginalize the incidents. Anything I say now will sound like a crappy excuse.”

Tarantino also talked about one incident involving Weinstein. Weinstein actually made unwanted sexual advances towards Tarantino’s former girlfriend, Mira Sorvino. Mira told Tarantino about Weinstein’s advances and unwanted touching. Tarantino said he was shocked when learning about this, adding that he was sure that “[Weinstein] won’t mess with her, he knows that she’s my girlfriend.”

The Los Angeles Times reported that the model is “well-known in Italy, where she appeared on the cover of Italian Vogue and as an actress in Italian films.” The same publication reported that the woman said that the incident happened at a hotel in Beverly Hills. Allegedly, it occurred after she attended the 8th Los Angeles, Italia Film, Fashion and Art Fest. According to the model after meeting her, Weinstein invited her to his hotel room.

The woman said that she refused the invitation, but after midnight Weinstein appeared in the lobby of her hotel. He asked her to invite him to her room, but once again she refused and told him she would only meet him downstairs. However, Weinstein did not agree and he was soon knocking on her door.

“‘I’m not going to [have sex with] you, I just want to talk,'” the woman said Weinstein told her. “Once inside, he asked me questions about myself, but soon became very aggressive and demanding and kept asking to see me naked.” The woman said that she started crying and asked him to let her go. “He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me,” she said.

“He acted like nothing happened,” the woman went on to say. “I barely knew this man. It was the most demeaning thing ever done to me by far. It sickens me still. … He made me feel like an object, like nothing, with all his power.” The woman said she was scared and regretted that she didn’t call the police when it happened.

I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked,” the famous actress revealed.

She added that she told Weinstein to get back inside. “I remember thinking, it’s got to be a joke, I said something like.. oh come on mate ?!?? It’d be like kissing my dad !! Let’s go get a drink, get back to the others. I was never in any other Miramax film,” she said. However, unfortunately for Lena this was not the only experience that she had to share.

She met Weinstein for the second time at a Los Angeles hotel. She said that although she expected it to be a business meeting, Weinstein actually asked questions about her love life and then asked her to go to his room and look at a script.

The star said that Weinstein was furious and made her feel powerless.

Kate Winslet Says She Didn’t Want to Thank Harvey Weinstein during Oscars Speech

Famous actress Kate Winslet also had a story to share about Harvey Weinstein. Luckily, in this case it did not talk about allegations of sexual harassment. In fact, Kate decided to reveal now the reason why she decided not to thank Weinstein when she won an Oscar in 2009.

Actually, when she held her winning speech at the Oscars back in 2009 many people wondered why Kate excluded Weinstein from the list of people she thanked. Some believed that she forgot, but that was not the case. During an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Kate said that she actually made the decision to not thank Harvey.

“I remember being told, ‘Make sure you thank Harvey if you win.’ And I remember turning around and saying, ‘No I won’t. No I won’t,'” the actress said. “And it was nothing to do with not being grateful. If people aren’t well-behaved, why would I thank him?” she went on to add. Kate and Weinstein collaborated back in 1994 when Kate actually made her debut. However, Kate revealed that it was not the best experience possible for her.

In fact, the star said that Weinstein always reminded her about the fact that he was the one who cast her in her first movie, Heavenly Creatures. “For my whole career, Harvey Weinstein, whenever I’ve bumped into him, he’d grab my arm and say, ‘Don’t forget who gave you your first movie.’ Like I owe him everything,” the actress said during her interview.

“But that’s how he operated. He was bullying and nasty. Going on a business level, he was always very, very hard to deal with — he was rude. He used to call my female agent a [vulgar name for a woman] every time he spoke to her on the telephone,” Kate also explained.

Kate previously praised all the women who decided to speak up about Weinstein’s misconduct. Kate also expressed her support for these women and said that Weinstein’s behavior was “disgraceful and appalling and very, very wrong.”

Kate Beckinsale Talks about Harvey Weinstein Abuse

Kate Beckinsale is one of the famous actresses who has been a victim to sexual harassment conducted by Harvey Weinstein. The actress revealed her experience in an Instagram post. The Underworld star claimed that it all happened when she was only 17 years old.

Kate revealed that she had a very uncomfortable meeting with Weinstein back then. The star said that she was called to meet the famous Hollywood producer at the Savoy Hotel. The famous actress, who is now 44 years old, said that she believed the meeting will be taking place in a conference room, which was actually something very common when it comes to such encounters. However, things didn’t happen like that.

Actually, Kate said that when she arrived at the hotel, she was told to go up to Weinstein’s room. “He opened the door in his bathrobe,” the actress said. “I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him. After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed,” Kate explained.

Kate also said that she was shocked years later when she met Weinstein once again. “A few years later he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting,” she said. “I realized he couldn’t remember if he had assaulted me or not. I had what I thought were boundaries – I said no to him professionally many times over the years – some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a c**t and making threats, some of which made him laughingly tell people oh ‘Kate lives to say no to me,'” she added.

Kate said that the fact that she said no to things actually harmed her career and she never received support from anyone, naturally, except for her family. Kate also praised all the women who decided to speak up and share their experience involving the famous Hollywood producer. She also claimed that such behavior has created a climate of fear in Hollywood. “I had a male friend who, based on my experience, warned a young actress who said she was going to dinner with Harvey to be careful,” she said.

However, that woman was already sleeping with Weinstein, so the friend “received a phone call the next day saying he would never work in another Miramax film.” “Let’s remember that Harvey is an emblem of a system that is sick, and that we have work to do,” she concluded.
