In the wake of those stories, Weinstein issued a long, scattered statement in which he begged for "a second chance in the community", referenced Jay-Z lyrics and declared he would take on the National Rifle Association. "We went back and forth until finally he turned to the waiter and said, 'Get her what I tell you to get her".

"He said that if he was going to introduce me around town to directors and producers he needed to know if I was any good".

Soon after, Weinstein reportedly flew to Arizona to check into a sex-addiction rehabilitation center. And now, the New Yorker offers an inside look into what it was like at the Weinstein Co. on the days both exposés were released.

Grogan nearly retired, 53 years old; Duke, I think less than a year on the job. The biggest takeaway from the briefing was Kelly using his time to attack Rep.

The response came a day after the essay appeared in which Nyong'o detailed a series of alleged Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment encounters that included several explicit passes Weinstein tried to foist on her early in her career, reported Entertainment Weekly. At the time, Nyong'o didn't catch the signals finding Harvey to be, according to her, "pushy" and "idiosyncratic".

"I had shelved my experience with Harvey far in the recesses of my mind, joining in the conspiracy of silence that has allowed this predator to prowl for so many years", she wrote. " After the screening, we would have drinks in TriBeCa", wrote Nyong'o. It's here she began to really panic and feel unsafe. When she auditioned for The Mirror Has Two Faces, Young says she went to her audition with Streisand and quoted the star as saying, "I think it's disgusting that you talked to the press!" I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable. "I did not know that anybody wanted things to change". I have a private room upstairs where we can have the rest of our meal.' I was stunned. "But I also did not know that there was a world in which anybody would care about my experience with him".

"Part of our drama school curriculum at Yale included body work, using massage techniques on one another to understand the connection between body, mind and emotion, and so I felt I could rationalize giving him one and keep a semblance of professionalism in spite of the freaky circumstance". The actress confessed she was afraid and anxious for her future in the industry and asked the producer if the situation could end in good terms. News in a statement. Nyong'o ordered juice to drink, but Weinstein insisted on ordering her vodka and diet soda, and continued to pressure her to drink the cocktail, though she refused. Harvey Weinstein under investigation by LAPD for alleged 2013 sexual assaultRing said his client was 34 at the time of the alleged incident and was working as an actress in Italy. "But I made a quiet promise to myself to never ever work with Harvey Weinstein". Or after TV journalist Lauren Sivan recalled Weinstein had once masturbated into a potted plant in front of her at a NY restaurant and club, an account that was later corroborated by the club owner? "Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events, but believes Lupita is a brilliant actress and a major force for the industry".
