She claims that Weinstein, however, persisted and performed oral sex on her and then masturbated in front of her.

"I shut that down immediately, and I said, 'No, that has nothing to do with what I want to do.' I said, 'What is this, a casting couch thing?'" she said, and noted that Weinstein got "annoyed" with that response.

Haleyi said she wanted "a good relationship with [Weinstein], but not a sexual or romantic one". "I was in disbelief and disgusted".

In her lawsuit, Huett had alleged that Weinstein lured her to a room at the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills in November 2010 under the guise of helping her procure future TV and film roles.

"Harvey asked if I'd give him a massage".

Women have started a kind of movement to break their silence surrounding their experiences with sexual harassment and assault amid the Weinstein allegations, rallying around #MeToo, a hashtag campaign whose origins trace back a decade to activist Tarana Burke.

Mimi Haleyi is on a list of people that NY officials are seeking to speak with in the ongoing investigation into allegations against Weinstein, according to law enforcement sources.

"I told him no, no, no but he insisted", she said, describing the sexual assault while seated beside Allred at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel on Madison Avenue.

She said he invited her to his NY loft and after she arrived, he was all over her and "wouldn't take no for an answer".

"I remember Harvey afterwards rolling over on to his back and saying, 'Don't you feel we're so much closer to each other now?'" she recalled.

Haleyi was in her 20s at the time. "I said, 'No sorry, I'm not a masseuse, ' and I suggested he contact hotel reception", Haleyi said. She declined and left, feeling "humiliated and stupid" for having been excited about the meeting, she said.

One of the signers of the letter, State Representative Sara Feigenholtz, has also filed a resolution urging those in government to work on changing the culture in Springfield that the resolution says breeds sexual harassment.

Although she said she had no personal run-ins with him during production on 2005's The Great Raid, she did warn her young co-star not to accept any drink invitations from the producer unless she knew others would be present. "I grabbed his hand and squeezed it violently to hurt him and proceeded to hold it in place on his own thigh".

Nielsen joins a swelling list of named accusers of Weinstein, now reaching towards 60.

Meanwhile, Ashley Judd, whose accusations against Weinstein were among the first to be made public in reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker three weeks ago, will make her TV debut talking about the scandal on Thursday in an interview with Diane Sawyer that will air throughout the day on the network's various news shows.
