Annabella Sciorra is latest to accuse disgraced Harvey Weinstein of rape

Actresses Daryl Hannah and Annabella Sciorra have joined the chorus of women speaking out against film producer Harvey Weinstein. She accused him of raping her in the early 1990s.

As she relived the alleged incidents yesterday, fellow actress Daryl Hannah, who starred in Blade Runner and Splash, became the seventieth woman to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault or harassment.

“I feel a moral obligation to support the women who have suffered much more egregious transgressions, ” Hannah said, later admitting she “experienced instant repercussions” for rejecting his sexual advances.

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle star Sciorra told the New Yorker that after dropping her off at her Los Angeles hotel room after an industry event one evening, Weinstein returned and burst in when she opened the door - then violently raped her.

The 57-year-old actress claimed she met Harvey in the beginning of the 90's after appearing in the film, The Night We Never Met.

She said that after many years Weinstein exhausted to contact her again. He then tried a second assault. The two exchanged information for a possible business meeting and after ignoring his phone calls to her hotel room one night, he started knocking on the door.

"It wasn't that late. like it wasn't the middle of the night, so I opened the door a crack to see who it was".

First Charges Filed in Trump-Russia Special Counsel Investigation
A federal grand jury approved the charges on Friday but they remain under seal on the orders of a federal judge, CNN reported. A person or people could be taken into custody as early as Monday, according to CNN and the Wall Street Journal .

Weinstein left, and Sciorra said she never spoke of the rape and never went to police.

Harvey Weinstein, who recently did a week at a therapy facility, denies all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

Several years later Weinstein began harassing her again while she was filming a movie in London.

"He came through the living room and into the bedroom". From 1992 to 1995, she got no work, she said in the interview.

"I said, 'No, you can't!' And then he said, 'At least flash me, then.' And I said, 'F*** off, Harvey'". She asked the film producer to find her another place to stay, The New Yorker said.

Despite her resistance Weinstein forced sexual intercourse with her and "attempted to perform oral sex on me", she told the magazine.

She remembered him saying things like, "Come here, come on, cut it out, what are you doing, come here", the magazine reported. "It was sort of incessant, and then it started turning into pounding on my door", the Kill Bill actress said, revealing that she left the room through an exterior door and slept in her makeup artist's room, but he returned the next morning. "They're gonna look at me and they're gonna know".
