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".
