Hollywood Mogul Harvey Weinstein Faces Sex Harass Accusations Dating Back Decades

Ronan Farrow, other reporters set to expose 'bombshell' allegations against Harvey Weinstein

According to the NYT, Weinstein has reached at least eight settlements with women, including McGowan.

Judd recalled her experience with Weinstein in a Variety article in 2015, but declined to mention his name.

The Times identifies several of Weinstein's accusers, including actress Ashley Judd.

Weinstein already cut an infamous figure in Hollywood. During their time at both Miramax and The Weinstein Company, their films have earned 341 Oscar nominations, and have won 81 Academy Awards.

The Weinstein Company's films include Oscar-winners such as "The Artist" and "The King's Speech", as well as box office hits such as "Silver Linings Playbook" and "Django Unchained". Instead, she was summoned to his room. When she refused, he suggested a shoulder rub.

She said: "Harvey Weinstein and I have had many wide ranging conversations over the a year ago about rumors and allegations against him".

Meanwhile, his lawyer says the studio mogul is preparing to sue The New York Times.

Judd also said she felt "panicky" and "trapped" during the situation.

Among them were a young assistant in NY in 1990, "Charmed" actress Rose McGowan in 1997, an assistant in London in 1998, an Italian model in 2015 and, most recently, Lauren O'Connor, who documented some of the women's complaints, the Times said. McGowan has spoken publicly about being the victim of sexual misconduct in Hollywood, but has stopped shy of naming names.

Weinstein is also being advised by attorney Lisa Bloom, who is a famed advocate for women. "One woman advised a peer to wear a parka when summoned for duty as a layer of protection against unwelcome advances".

The producer said in his statement that he knows he has a "long way to go".

He continued: "I've brought on therapists and I plan to take a leave of absence from my company and to deal with this issue head on".

"The New York Times published today a story that is saturated with false and defamatory statements about Harvey Weinstein", Harder said in a statement sent to TheWrap.

"Jay Z wrote in 4:4 "I'm not the man I thought I was and I better be that man for my children".

With that personal background, Farrow, also an attorney, is set to take on the silence that reportedly surrounds another powerful male figure in the film industry: indie movie and TV mogul Harvey Weinstein.
