Actress Sean Young Claims Harvey Weinstein Exposed Himself to Her

In response to these allegations against Weinstein, people - including celebrities - took to the digital streets of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to share their stories and increase awareness about the extent of sexual assault and harassment through the #metoo campaign. She says that is when she "personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of his trousers". "A woman who was a producer herself cautiously advised me to 'keep Harvey in your corner.' She said: 'He is a good man to know in the business, but just be careful around him". "The waiter left and returned with a vodka and diet soda for me". Before long he said he wanted to take off his trousers. "I was after all on his premises, and the members of his household, the potential witnesses, were all (strategically, it seems to me now) in a soundproof room". When she declined, Lupita was told to leave.

When she first met the now-disgraced producer, she wrote, she was "entering into a community that Harvey Weinstein had been in, and even shaped, long before I got there". She silently formulates an escape plan, trying to remain a few steps ahead of her aggressor, and she laughs awkwardly at being called "stubborn", instead of showing fear or anger.

After their brief second meeting at dinner, it was another two years before Lupita saw Weinstein again, at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2013, when she was promoting her feature film debut in 12 Years a Slave.


"Before the starters arrived, he announced: 'Let's cut to the chase. And she told me she thought that was disgusting". I was stunned. I told him I preferred to eat in the restaurant. I wasn't dealing with things that were going on emotionally.

Not long after they met, Weinstein called on Nyong'o to attend a film screening with him and his family, but when the auto showed up, he informed her that they would be eating lunch first. "He said he couldn't believe how fast I had gotten to where I was, and that he had treated me so badly in the past". As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. "I speak up to contribute to the end of the conspiracy of silence". "The minute you actually stand up for yourself in Hollywood, you're the insane one", she said.
