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.

"He shoved me onto the bed, and he got on top of me", Sciorra added, saying that she tried to get away by kicking and screaming, but he locked her arms and raped her. And I fought. I fought. She said he knocked on her door early one morning and she opened it without thinking. I was definitely embarrassed by it. "I felt disgusting. I felt like I had f-ked up".

The alleged rape took place in NY after Sciorra had filmed Miramax's "The Night We Never Met".

While Barkin was never sexually assaulted by Weinstein, she said he “frequently verbally abused” her. Hannah explained that she and her makeup artist pushed a dresser in front of the door and hid from him.

Several years later, Hannah allegedly encountered Weinstein again when he somehow got a key to her hotel room and let himself in.

When asked what it felt like to finally tell her story, the Divergent actress said she'd been "telling my story for a very long time".

The 57-year-old, who had roles in Cop Land and The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, made the allegation in a new expose in The New Yorker on Friday.

Hannah said she told a producer for the film, anybody in power who would listen, and the film's director and longtime Weinstein collaborator Quentin Tarantino - but she said no one seemed to care, and she was subsequently punished for speaking out.

Trump, GOP at odds over using 401(k)s to pay for tax cuts
Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan has said he wants the House to pass the tax overhaul by the Nov 23 Thanksgiving holiday. Brady said he and Trump had discussed 401 (k) s twice in recent days, which would be after Trump's tweet on the subject.

When she turned to leave, she says, Weinstein accosted her. "The knocking started again and again". He came through the living room and into the bedroom. "They're gonna look at me and they're gonna know".

The actress claims Weinstein told her there was a party she had to go to, and when she arrived the reception was "completely empty".

"I said, 'No, you can't!' And then he said, 'At least flash me, then.' And I said, 'F*** off, Harvey'". The actor admitted she was fearful of what might happen to her career if she told anyone about her experience and regrets "not being stronger in the moment".

She ran away from him and used the phone in her room to call for help.
