Another Italian actress agst Weinstein

In news that will surprise nobody, another high-profile actress has added her name to the long list of women that a lecherous Harvey Weinstein propositioned her at a more vulnerable point in her career.

Lupita turned down a future offer to work on a Weinstein Company produced film in 2014.

Young appeared on the Dudley and Bob with Matt Show podcast in Austin where she recalled working on the 1992 film Love Crimes.

The invitation to screen a movie with Weinstein and his children at his CT home turned into a restaurant lunch where he tried to bully her into drinking alcohol, she wrote, followed by him cutting short her viewing of the movie after 15 minutes and taking her to his bedroom where he offered to give her a massage. "And then leaving, and then never having another meeting with that guy again, because it was like, 'What on earth?'" She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. Women, you are not alone and I will continue to fight for you.

Recounting their conversation, she wrote: "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". It was a very odd and uncomfortable call.i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or chose to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. That I was sexually harassed by Warren Beatty. "I told him not to do that and informed him that it would make me extremely uncomfortable". To which Young suggested that perhaps she should have been "softer" in her rejections. "He was not. For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe". After she arrived, he told her to sit on the couch, sat next to her and kept telling her she needed to be "good" if she wanted to succeed. 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. "It felt like both a threat and a reassurance at the same time; of what, I couldn't be sure".

"Our business is complicated because intimacy is part and parcel of our profession; as actors we are paid to do very intimate things in public", wrote Nyong'o, who is now 34.
