A Los Angeles actress testified Monday that after being lured to a Beverly Hills hotel in 2013 on the pretense that Harvey Weinstein had let Harvey Weinstein read one of her scripts, the disgraced film producer and since convicted rapist had her in a bathroom sexually assaulted.
The woman, identified in court as Jane Doe 2, told a Los Angeles Superior Court jury that in February 2013 she was invited to the Montague Hotel by a Mexican model to speak with Weinstein about job opportunities and a screenplay whom she had worked. Instead, she said the model trapped her and Weinstein in a hotel room bathroom, where he immediately “unclothed.”
“I was disgusted. I had never seen such a tall guy naked. I actually laughed nervously and thought, ‘No, no, no,’” said Jane Doe 2, who was 23 at the time of the attack.
Despite her verbal pleas for Weinstein to stop, she said the now 70-year-old fondled her breasts and masturbated. During the attack, she claimed, Weinstein talked to her about “movie stuff” while she was frozen in fear. She said that after several minutes — and blocked attempts to touch her vagina — Weinstein finally ejaculated onto a towel and immediately left the bathroom.
When asked Monday to describe Weinstein’s body during the attack, Jane Doe 2 said the fallen titan was “really hairy and there were birthmarks on his body.”
“His penis was disgusting. It looked like it had been chopped off and sewn back on, like something was wrong,” she added, noting that she didn’t see his testicles — which were a focal point during Weinstein’s Los Angeles trial.
Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to multiple counts, including rape, at his second crime trial. Prosecutors allege that Weinstein sexually assaulted five women in Los Angeles between 2003 and 2013. At least eight women – including Jane Doe 2 – are scheduled to testify against Weinstein to show his alleged pattern of predatory behavior and his power to ensure their silence.
Weinstein’s defense attorneys say these accusers knowingly had “transactional sex” with their once-powerful client — and are now, out of embarrassment, changing their version of events.
But Jane Doe 2, who got emotional on the witness stand several times, stressed Monday that she was scared of Weinstein — and what would happen after the alleged attack.
In particular, she said she feared “that he would hurt me, or send someone to hurt me, or ruin my career, or make my life a living hell.”
On Friday, as she began her testimony, Jane Doe 2 testified that she first met Weinstein at an Oscar party in February 2012, shortly after she moved to Los Angeles to work as a model and actress. The then 22-year-old said she met former Miss Mexico and actress Claudia Salinas over dinner and they hit it off immediately. There, she said, she told Salinas that she was “working on a script for a movie.”
About a year later, Jane Doe 2 said Salinas called her out of the blue to set up a meeting with Weinstein about her script.
“I found it really exciting for me because someone of such great importance in the film industry was interested in my script,” she added, noting that the meeting was to be held at the Montage Hotel bar.
Weinstein eventually joined her and Salinas, though she said he was mostly on the phone while two others discussed her script. She said he mentioned that she should be there America’s Next Top Model– which she refused.
Suddenly, she said, Weinstein claimed he had to go upstairs to get ready for a later event with Quentin Tarantino – and asked Jane Doe 2 and Salinas to join him to end their conversation.
She said after the trio went upstairs, she saw Salinas close the bathroom door behind her and Weinstein. At Weinstein’s New York trial — where he was convicted of similar crimes — Salinas denied her involvement in the alleged attack. Soon after, Jane Doe said, Weinstein quickly jumped into the shower to rinse off before attacking her.
“Everything happened so quickly,” she said. “I was very dizzy. I felt like I was outside of my body watching what was happening, I couldn’t move. i was frozen I was so scared.”
