The "Blue is the Warmest Color" actress told the Guardian she could not remember if Weinstein was ever actually able to kiss her, or what his reaction was when she bolted. "Mr. Weinstein's pattern of mistreating women, as recounted in recent reports, is disgraceful and shocks the conscience", Friedman-Agnifilo said in a statement. Though she has previously remained silent against the growing allegations against her husband, her announcement came on the same day as the movie mogul was accused of rape by three women, and high-profile Hollywood stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie testified against him.

"If we could have prosecuted Harvey Weinstein for the conduct that occurred in 2015, we would have". Sexism is pervasive and deeply entrenched in the industry, and we may have to wait for these men to lose their considerable influence before they are confronted. And it hasn't won an Academy Award for best picture since 2011 (The Artist) and, this year, is extremely unlikely to have a single nominee in the field. Jail time is a possibility for the highest-level charges, but if Weinstein is prosecuted for a lower-level charge, "it would be very likely he would plead to some type of action that would possibly keep him out of jail but on very strict probation".

Damon, in an interview to Deadline, said Weinstein had asked him to call Waxman to vouch for Fabrizio Lombardo, who ran Miramax's Italian office, the distribution company for Weinstein, and Damon agreed to call the reporter. In the wake of the scandal, Weinstein has hired attorney Blair Berk - whose client roster has included Britney Spears, Kiefer Sutherland, Heather Locklear, Mel Gibson and Leonardo DiCaprio - as well as the firm of Patricia Glaser.

Weinstein has faced numerous allegations of sexual assault both in and as a result of shocking exposes by The New York Times and the New Yorker.

"We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me", she said. "I thought he was going to fire me", Paltrow added. He quickly became one of the film industry's biggest power players, as co-founder (with his brother, Bob) of Miramax, the indie distributor responsible for films like Pulp Fiction and Good Will Hunting.
