  • More women go public with Weinstein abuse allegations

MORE: Harvey Weinstein accused of sexual harassment in 2008 by former screenwriterBeckinsale continued, adding that she said "no to him professionally many times over the years".

"I think everyone needs to stop, I think it's wrong", she added.

The New York Times publishes a story detailing decades of allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein. "And when they are famous and powerful like Harvey then it gets talked about and so it's really important that those women have been fearless enough to come out", Fonda said.

The Hollywood mogul and mega-Democratic fundraiser was booted from The Weinstein Co., the film studio he co-founded, on Sunday after a bombshell report from The New York Times disclosing the sexual harassment allegations from several women. Boies said there was one settlement to which he "gave advice at or about the time it was being entered into" but declined to say which one.

"Since then I felt terrible that I did the movie".

While the meeting started uneventfully the film producer ended up putting his hands on her suggesting they head to his bedroom for a massage. "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".

"Guys, I'm not doing OK but I'm trying".

Beckinsale calls for a new paradigm in the industry and says "let's stop allowing our young women to be sexual cannon fodder".

He led the 76ers to a 28-54 record, their highest win total since the 2012-13 season. He averaged 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds last season.

"A second chance, I hope", Weinstein said in a video shot Wednesday outside daughter Lily Weinstein's Los Angeles home obtained by ABC News.

NY detectives already investigated Weinstein once, in 2015, when an Italian model said the studio executive grabbed her breasts and groped her. Detectives set up a sting where they recorded a conversation between the woman and Weinstein while he tried to persuade her to come into his hotel room.

Police in NY tell the BBC they are looking to speak to an individual regarding an allegation against Weinstein dating from 2004.

Samantha Bee has a message for all the "creeps" in Hollywood: "We know who you are". The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has schedule a special meeting on Saturday, when its board of governors will decide how to respond to the allegations against Weinstein.

Prime Minister Theresa May also spoke out about the scandal on Wednesday. "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.

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".

"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.
