Unfortunately, the list keeps growing.

A long, decade-old list of sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein were published in The New York Times last week.

This contained a detailed description of how the movie mogul had paid off at least eight women. Since then, even more celebrities have confessed their stories of abuse.

His victims were a wide palette of models and assistants to top Hollywood talents, and they all shared similar narratives. Supposedly, Weinstein forced himself upon them and he even tried to pressure them into performing sexual acts.

This is a case of a wealthy man who used his influence to silence every woman who would dare to confront and speak against him.

Here is a list of the women who were allegedly subjected to his sexual harassment.

1. Ashley Judd

The article at the Times opened with a story about Ashley Judd, who was invited at Weinstein’s hotel room two decades ago. She assumed that it was for a business breakfast meeting. What she got was a massage proposal. He also asked if she could watch him shower.

She said she remembered thinking: ‘”How do I get out of the room as fast as possible without alienating Harvey Weinstein?”

2. Rose McGowan

The Times article also identified Rose McGowan as one of the producer’s victims. She starred in 1996 film Scream, distributed by Weinstein.

What she tweeted concerning her abuse was: “Because my ex sold our movie to my rapist for distribution #WhyWomenDontReport.”

McGowan has been the voice about problems in the industry for many years. She continues to bring light her story against Weinstein and strongly defend the women who were victimized by this person.

3. Asia Argento

The Italian actress and director Asia Argento revealed that Weinstein forced oral sex on her. She was 21, with a desire to rise as an actor, when she was invited to something that was supposed to be a party.

When she arrived, there was Weinstein, alone, who asked her for a massage. He was holding a bottle of lotion. Asia said she resisted at first, but eventually agreed. He then pushed her skirt up, and performed oral sex while she was begging him to stop.

Argento shared a clip of a film she directed in 1999 on her Twitter profile. The film mirrored her experience with the producer.

4. Mira Sorvino

This actress told Farrow that she, as the rest, found herself in a hotel room with Weinstein during her early career. She had starred in multiple Weinstein movies. They were supposed to discuss the film.

She remembers: “He started massaging my shoulders, which made me very uncomfortable, and then tried to get more physical, sort of chasing me around “.

She managed to get out of the room, but that was not it. Weeks later, something similar happened. She called a friend to come over and pose as her boyfriend, and was freaked out when she opened the door and there he was.

“I opened the door terrified, brandishing my twenty-pound Chihuahua mix in front of me, as though that would do any good,”- she added. She eventually explained that her boyfriend was on his way and he left.

5. Emma de Caunes

The French actor met the producer in 2010. He invited her in his room to give her a particular book. Once she was in the room, the phone had rang and he went in the bathroom. Several moments later, he came out with an erection and told Emma to lie on the bed

He said this under the excuse of ‘”many other women had done so before her.” She immediately left.

6. Rosanna Arquette

Arquette agreed to meet up with Weinstein to pick up a film script. Like he did with most of the victimized women, he asked for a massage. After she refused, he tried to place her hand on his penis.

What she said for the New Yorker was : “My heart was really racing. I was in a fight-or-flight moment,”.

“He made things very difficult for me for years.”- she added, after she admitted that she had rejected him at that moment.

7. Angelina Jolie

“I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose to never work with him again and warn others when they did,” – Jolie told the Times in an email.

“This behavior toward women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”-she added afterwards.

8. Ambra Battilana Gutierrez

Miss Italy’s contestant finalist met Weinstein in 2015. He repeated several times that she looked like the actress Mila Kunis. After noting several inappropriate comments about her breasts, he tried to grope them. Eventually he tried to put his hand in her skirt, but she protested.

Weinstein backed off, gave her Broadway show tickets and said he would meet her there.

She went to the NYPD instead and reported the assault. When she met him, she wore a wire and all the conversations between them were taped and released.

 

9. Jessica Barth

She told Farrow she met Weinstein at a Golden Globes party in 2011. He invited her in his hotel room, offered her movie roles and started to sexually harass her.

“‘So, what would happen if, say, we’re having some champagne and I take my clothes off and you give me a massage?'” Barth recounted Weinstein asking. “And I’m like, ‘That’s not going to happen.'”

She left the room in tears after he said that she would never be able to compete with Mila Kunis.

10. Gwyneth Paltrow

When she was 22, she was cast to play a lead role in one of Weinstein’s movies. After he invited her to his hotel, he asked for a massage, and now she reveals: “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,”.

“I thought he was going to fire me.”-she added, after refusing the offer.

11. Romola Garai

She confessed having an ‘audition’ like every other woman in the industry.

“Like every other woman in the industry, I’ve had an ‘audition’ with Harvey Weinstein, where I’d actually already had the audition but you had to be personally approved by him,” she told The Guardian.

“So I had to go to his hotel room in the Savoy, and he answered the door in his bathrobe. I was only 18. I felt violated by it, it has stayed very clearly in my memory.”-she added.

12. Katherine Kendall

In 1993, the actress set up a meeting with Weinstein through her agent. After he said he had to drop something to her apartment, it didn’t take long before he went into the bathroom. He then came out in a robe asking for a massage.

“He literally chased me.He wouldn’t let me pass him to get to the door.”-she added, after saying that she tried to refuse him.

13. Heather Graham

Heather Graham recalled her experience with Weinstein during an exclusive interview with Variety in the early 2000s. He invited her to his office to discuss some scripts.

“Later in the conversation, he mentioned that he had an agreement with his wife. He could sleep with whomever he wanted when he was out of town,” Graham told Variety. “I walked out of the meeting feeling uneasy. There was no explicit mention that to star in one of those films I had to sleep with him, but the subtext was there.”

14. Cara Delevingne

The model revealed her experience in an Instagram post.

When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from‎ Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call….i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I’d never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn’t and wouldn’t be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn’t want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing….i thought it would make the situation better….more professional….like an audition….i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn’t deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out….I didn’t want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.

The second interaction Delevingne recalls is even more shocking.

“A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film,” she wrote. “The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature.”

Delevingne added: “He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn’t and wouldn’t be for a bit and I should go to his room.

“At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn’t want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation.”

When Delevingne arrived in Weinstein’s hotel room, she said another woman was there, and she immediately felt safer. But that didn’t last.

“He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction,” she wrote. “I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing….i thought it would make the situation better….more professional….like an audition….i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room.”

Delevingne said Weinstein still offered her a part in the movie he was casting, but that she always felt like he may have only given it to her because of that encounter in his hotel room.

“I was so hesitant about speaking out,” she wrote. “I didn’t want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.”

15. Léa Seydoux

The actress known for her roles in Blue Is the Warmest Color and Spectre is the latest victim of Weinstein.

In an interview for the Guardian, Seydoux said she met Weinstein and his female assistant in the lobby of a hotel. “All throughout the evening, he flirted and stared at me as if I was a piece of meat,” she explained. “He acted as if he were considering me for a role. But I knew that was bullshit. I knew it, because I could see it in his eyes. He had a lecherous look. He was using his power to get sex.”

But things soon started to escalate when his assistant left. “We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me. I had to defend myself,” she added.

“He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room, thoroughly disgusted. I wasn’t afraid of him, though. Because I knew what kind of man he was all along.”
