The actress was taken aback about the rape incidents and a powerful threat by Weinstein and even thought that this disclosure would shake up her personal life. The actress, however, gathered immense strength and stood for herself as she got to know there are other women who have imposed similar charges on Harvey.
The actress also stated, “Money in a pot would be very nice but that's not what this is at all. I want 'rapist,' I want 'serial predatory rapist.' Justice would look like 'guilty'.” However, a spokesperson for Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex and said "allegations are not certainties"
