THE Weinstein Co film company is being sued by its founder and former co-chairman Harvey Weinstein who is seeking information to help defend himself against sexual assault allegations.

Haleyi finally told Weinstein she wasn't interested in him romantically and that she had heard about his "terrible reputation with women".

Huett said she finally chose to step forward after reading Ashley Judd's account in the New York Times of an eerily similar run-in with Weinstein and watching dozens of other women describe alleged harassment and assault at the hands of the fallen filmmaker.

"I think we should constantly be talking about whether or not building walls and scapegoating of minorities is how we want to be represented", Clooney said. But she made a decision to join Weinstein because, "I had a business appointment". "It's a very important word - shame - and it's a very important thing to talk about", Judd said. She said the sex was not consensual.

Lexus was a sponsor and had product placement in The Weinstein Co.'s "Project Runway" reality television show. "That's how he rolled", she said.

Meanwhile, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents at least three accusers, held yet another press conference, this time in NY, and urged Weinstein to negotiate with her.

The suit also states Weinstein's contention that he can provide context to his emails that would help defend against a civil rights investigation launched by New York's attorney general.

She said Weinstein then proposed the three of them engage in a threesome, which Malthe declined. Shortly after her arrival, Judd said Weinstein became sexually suggestive, asking if he could give her a massage and a shoulder rub before asking if she would watch him while he showered.

Judd was filming the movie Kiss the Girls when Weinstein invited her to a Beverly Hills hotel for "a business appointment".

When asked if Weinstein should go to jail, Judd said, "If he's a rapist, he should absolutely go to jail".

The new movie, they say, will illuminate the "behavior of predatory perpetrators such as Harvey Weinstein and others", and the culture that "enables and protects them".

"Vague apologies are not enough".

In all, more than 50 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct. The actress had no idea the "meeting" was just a disguise to get her alone with him. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan.

On Thursday, Actress Ashley Judd, whose story led off the explosive October 5 New York Times story, will give her first interview since the scandal broke.
