Harvey Weinstein scandal: Who has accused him of what?
Kate Beckinsale, Lysette Anthony and Gwyneth Paltrow are among more than 50 women who have come forward with allegations ranging from rape to sexual harassment by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Together, the claims build up a picture of one of the most powerful men in the industry exerting pressure on younger women at the start of their careers, often in hotel rooms and offices.
He has admitted his behaviour has “caused a lot of pain” but has described many of the allegations against him as “patently false”.
His spokesperson has said “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied” and there were “never any acts of retaliation” against women who turned him down.
Here are some of those who have made allegations against him.
The Splash actress says she repeatedly turned down Weinstein’s advances during promotion for Kill Bill and its sequel. He tried, she says, to get into her hotel room on multiple occasions, once getting a key and “burst[ing] in like a raging bull.”
He asked to grope her breasts and then asked her to expose herself to him, she alleges. She suffered physical repercussions as her flights were cancelled and she was left stranded in Italy after she turned him down on one occasion, she adds.
“I was so ashamed of what happened,” Sciorra told the New Yorker. “And I fought. I fought. But still I was like, Why did I open that door?”
Former production worker Mimi Haleyi alleges that she was raped by Weinstein when he forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006 in his New York apartment.
“I told him ‘no, no, no’. But he insisted,” Ms Haleyi told a press conference in New York.
