Weinstein left, and Sciorra said she never spoke of the rape and never went to police. "I felt disgusting. I felt like I had f****d up".

"Splash" actress Darryl Hannah also detailed hair-raising incidents with Weinstein for The New Yorker.


Hannah said among those she told were Oscar-winning Quentin Tarantino - who worked closely with Weinstein for decades, including on the "Kill Bill" films - and who has since admitted knowing for decades about Weinstein's behavior and expressed regret for not speaking out.

She said that he came at her door on one particular night, he was "in his underwear, holding a bottle of baby oil in one hand and a tape, a movie, in the other".

The 49-year-old actress joined Jane Fonda, Julianna Margulies, Gloria Steinem, Judith Light, and Marisa Tomei at the Women's Media Center 2017 Women's Media Awards held at Capitale on Thursday (October 26) in New York City. She added, "I kicked and I yelled".

"He shoved me onto the bed, and he got on top of me" and "attempted to perform oral sex on me", she said.

"It wasn't that late. like it wasn't the middle of the night, so I opened the door a crack to see who it was".

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. "So it was very clear where he thought this was going to go", she recalled.

Later she heard "incessant" knocking on her hotel room door.

She said that her body was violently shaking at that time, as she had "having a seizure", and the producer left. Then Weinstein began banging on her door, she said.

The following evening she was packing up her room when the "The knocking started again and again".

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".

"And I was like, 'Oh, s**t".

Hannah said that when she first met Weinstein, she didn't know about his reputation. "And I was like, 'Oh, s-t.' We actually pushed a dresser in front of the door and just kind of huddled in the room".

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

But when Hannah got downstairs, she alleged, there was no evidence of a party - just Weinstein, waiting for her. "I just kept getting this pushback of 'We heard you were hard; we heard this or that.' I think that that was the Harvey machine".
