Harvey Weinstein 'Bullied His Way Into Her Room': Attorney

Harvey Weinstein stripped of his BFI Fellowship in the wake of sexual assault allegations

The allegations made by an Italian model-actress involve a 2013 incident at a hotel, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The actress, director and producer writes that she first met the now-disgraced producer in 2011 when she was in her final year at the Yale School of Drama.

Ring says that she gave Los Angeles police detectives a description of sexual assault and rape.

The reaction to these stories spurred actress Alyssa Milano to ask women who had been sexually assaulted or harassed to share their stories on social media, using the phrase "me too".

Sallie Hofmeister, a representative for Weinstein, said in a statement that Weinstein "unequivocally denies allegations of non-consensual sex".

The interactions that followed between her and the producer went back and forth between seemingly appropriate and uncomfortably inappropriate, Nyong'o said.

Once in the bedroom, Lupita says Harvey asked if he could give her a massage. Weinstein was a frequent caller and at one point he suggested they meet at an office in Westwood.

She told the paper she finally came forward at the urging of her children, who told her, "You just need to be strong, Mom". He then pulled down his zipper and exposed himself.

Prior to arriving at his home, the pair had lunch at a restaurant nearby where Weinstein insisted several times she drink alcohol, Nyong'o said. After some theater work, she quit acting. "I regret that I opened the [hotel] door".

The London Metropolitan Police department has also received three reports from women accusing Weinstein of sexual assault, CNN reported.

"When I met Harvey Weinstein, he was RUDE", she recalled.

Hearings begin in November, at which time, the academy leadership will consider "action up to and including termination of academy membership".

The Weinstein Company - from which Weinstein has since been fired - has produced all of Tarantino's films since the 1994 hit Pulp Fiction.

Hanks sits on the board of governors at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, hosts of the prestigious Academy Awards, and said that he "completely agrees" with the organisation's recent decision to expel Weinstein from its ranks.

The actress claimed Weinstein once exposed himself to her while she was working on a movie produced by his former production company, Miramax.

The investigation follows those launched by officers in NY and London into a number of allegations of rape or sexual assault against Weinstein.

Nyong'o's story is similar to many of Weinstein's accusers.

He continued: "If Hollywood and the entertainment industry was the only place where sexual harassment occurred, I would say yes (I am complicit in that), but you and I know that that's not the case; it's built into the rules of society".

Tarantino, who worked with Weinstein on some of his most successful films, including "Pulp Fiction", said in an interview published Thursday by the New York Times that he "knew enough to do more" than he did about the allegations, which include harassment of dozens of women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Judd, as well as rape. He said she decribed to the LAPD "extremely serious sexual assault and rape" but did not go into the "graphic" details.
