Sopranos star Annabella Sciorra accuses Weinstein of rape

Rose Mc Gowan arrives at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles. Mc Gowan is scheduled to address The Women's Convention in Detroit on Friday Oct. 27 2017 in her first public remarks since being

Sciorra, who appeared in the hit HBO series The Sopranos and Spike Lee's Jungle Fever, shared a particularly disturbing recollection of events that happened in the '90s at her apartment, alleging that Weinstein violently raped her. Her account comes from the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow, who contacted her for his initial story about Weinstein; she initially told Farrow that the disgraced former executive had never done anything appropriate for fear of retribution.

Hannah, who starred in the Weinstein-produced cult classic Kill Bill films, told the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow that her second encounter with Weinstein came years after the first when he rushed into her hotel room "like a raging bull" during the Kill Bill Vol. 2 Italian première in Rome. The actress claims Weinstein gave her a ride home that night, and Sciorra was getting ready for bed when he knocked on the door and once she opened it, pushed his way inside.

She broke her silence in the interview, having previously denied that the producer had ever behaved inappropriately.

Meanwhile, Splash actress Daryl Hannah has also made allegations against Weinstein. "The knocking started again and again".

"There's Harvey in his underwear, holding a bottle of baby oil in one hand and a tape, a movie, in the other", she said.

Hannah - best known for her starring roles in 1980s romcoms such as Splash and Roxanne - was also in the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc for Cannes when the alleged incident occurred.

Eric Bolling reveals how his son passed away
In a tweet , O'Reilly apologized to Bolling, saying "the message I tried to send was that allegations harm kids". Now we know his death was officially ruled an accidental overdose - and what kind of drugs he was on.

Weinstein left, and Sciorra said she never spoke of the rape and never went to police.

"The knocking started again and again". She added, "I kicked and I yelled". "I piled furniture in front of the door, like in the movies". When she eventually got dressed, she said the party room was "completely empty".

"He came through the living room and into the bedroom", she said. And I know with every fiber of my being that if my male makeup artist was not in that room, things would not have gone well.

Weinstein reportedly tried to get her to leave and go to a party with him downstairs.

"Are your tits real?" he allegedly asked her, then said asked if he could touch them. Her flights for a trip to Cannes for the film's French première were canceled, as were her hotel room in Cannes and her hair-and-makeup artist for the festival.

"I said, 'No, you can't!' And then he said, 'At least flash me, then.' And I said, 'F*** off, Harvey'". "I think that it doesn't matter if you're a well-known actress, it doesn't matter if you're twenty or if you're forty, it doesn't matter if you report or if you don't, because we are not believed".
