NYC, London police taking fresh look at Weinstein claims

The Goop founder is one of dozens of women accusing film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct after an investigation uncovered three-decades of allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the Hollywood exec. The Weinstein Company has launched an internal probe over sexual harassment claims against co-chairman Harvey Weinstein, confirming he has taken an "indefinite" leave of absence.

"With all these big sexual harassment cases going public", Bee says, "men are getting concerned about how they can avoid being accused".

In The New Yorker expose, a former actress, Lucia Evans, said Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex in 2004 when she was a college student.

Beckinsale said she left "uneasy but unscathed" after declining alcohol and saying she had school in the morning. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong.

Weinstein and his brother Bob, co-founders of Miramax Films, burst onto the indie scene with "Sex, Lies and Videotape" in 1989 and turned relatively low-budget films like "Shakespeare in Love" and "Pulp Fiction" into huge box-office hits.

"A few years later he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting". "And, you know, like so many people who've come forward and spoken out, this was a different side of a person who I and many others had known in the past". "I'm not doing OK but I'm trying".

Weinstein was terminated Sunday by the board of The Weinstein Co.in light of the allegations.

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane addresses a joke he made about Weinstein's sexual conduct at the 2013 Oscar nominations, saying chose to speak out after a co-star had been harassed by the producer.

Markey asked Pai to "publicly refuse to challenge the license of any broadcaster because the president dislikes its coverage". He's just shouting that it isn't true, from the bully pulpit of the White House, and suggesting that NBC should be silenced.

The actress says she said no to Weinstein professionally many times over the years, and that Weinstein would often respond with anger, profanity and threats.

Boies said that at the time of the contract negotiations, he was aware of three or four settlements with women.

Samantha Bee has a message for all the "creeps" in Hollywood: "We know who you are".

Weinstein spoke in front of media Wednesday as he emerged from a Los Angeles home and got into a vehicle.

Pierre Lescure, the festival president, and general delegate Thierry Fremaux, wrote in a joint statement: "These actions point to a pattern of behavior that merits only the clearest and most unequivocal condemnation". "We can from this create a new paradigm where producers, managers, executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said "well, that's just Harvey/Mr X/insert name here" will realize that we in numbers can affect real change", she said.

Another damaging report in The New Yorker this week included audio of Weinstein appearing to confess to sexual assault of Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez in 2015.

"Our thoughts go out to the victims, to those who have had the courage to testify and to all the others", Fremaux and Lescure said.
