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.

The harassment continued for years and when she opened up to a friend who told her to call police, she replied: "I can't go to the police". He "walked in like it was his apartment, like he owned the place, and started unbuttoning his shirt". She said that she resisted when the now-disgraced producer raped her and "when he was done, he ejaculated on my leg, and on my nightgown".

"I feel very special", Ashley said in regards to being honored at the event (via E!).

Ms Sciorra, 57, claims Weinstein later burst into an hotel room in France and tried to force himself on her again.

Annabella claimed her body began to "shake violently" and it probably caused him to leave because it appeared as if she was "having a seizure".

The alleged rape by Weinstein occurred sometime around 1992, when Annabella Sciorra (pictured) filmed Miramax's "The Night We Never Met." .

"Like most of these women, I was so ashamed of what happened", Sciorra said. And I fought. I fought. One night he allegedly started pounding on the door, so Sciorra secretly changed hotels. I was definitely embarrassed by it. "I felt disgusting. I felt like I had fucked up". She accused him of raping her in the early 1990s. At the Cannes Film Festival, a Miramax associate told her her room would be next to Weinstein's. "He said, 'I have impeccable timing, ' and then he said, 'This is for you, '" she told the magazine. "The knocking started again and again. I piled furniture in front of the door, like in the movies".

Hannah said that when she first met Weinstein, she didn't know about his reputation. "He had a key".

"He came through the living room and into the bedroom".

But Weinstein, now 65, held her down, with her hands over her head, she told The New Yorker. "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".

When she asked Weinstein why he was there, she said, he became flustered and told her that there was a party downstairs and she needed to attend. Weinstein was standing by the elevator waiting for her.

"He was closing in really quickly, and I pressed all the call buttons for valet service and room service. I said, 'No, you can't!' And then he said, 'At least flash me, then.' And I said, 'F-k 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".
