Malthe, who appeared in films such as This Means War, alongside Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, said she was asleep when she was woken up by Weinstein for “repeated pounding” on the door.
“I have dissociated’

She said that she heard someone shouting: “Open the door Natassia Malthe, it’s Harvey Weinstein.”

Malthe said when she opened the door, Weinstein implied sex of her role in an upcoming movie, and then started to masturbate in front of her.

She said then he pushed me back and forced himself to me. It was not consensual. He did not use a condom”.

She added: “I was completely disgusted. I think I dissociated during the time that he was having sex with me. I laid still and closed my eyes, and I just wanted it to end. I was like a death. After, I lay there, in complete disgust.”

She said she received the script the next day and then returned to Los Angeles. Malthe said that she had given the impression that she had secured a role in the movie Nine, a film produced by Weinstein that would star Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman and Dame Judi Dench.

Malthe said Weinstein, later, asked him to meet him at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel, telling him of a wizard.

But Malthe said when she arrived, he asked her to engage in a threesome with another woman.Powerful men”

She says that she refused and when she later called him refuse a role in one of his films, he became angry and verbally abusive.

“I have lived through the sexual harassment of other powerful men in Hollywood, but my experiences with Harvey were the worst,” Malthe said.

Her lawyer, Gloria Allred, said Malthe is “seen” to report to the police on the allegation.

The news comes the day after a former production assistant, Mimi Haleyi, accused Weinstein to perform oral sex on her without her consent in 2006.

And another actress and model, Dominique Huett, also accuses him of forcibly performing oral sex on her, became the first woman to continue The Weinstein Company, alleging a single count of negligence.

Dozens of women have made accusations against Weinstein this month, including the rape and sexual assault. He has unequivocally denied” all allegations of non-consensual sex.
