Lauren told the Huffington Post that 10 years ago, she met Weinstein at a dinner with friends. He invited her on a tour of the facility, and once they reached the kitchen, he ordered the staff to leave. It was there that Weinstein exposed himself to Lauren and masturbated in front of her.
2. Jessica Barth, actress
Jessica Barth met with Weinstein for a business meeting at his suite at the Peninsula Hotel in 2011. She says he demanded a naked massage in bed. When she tried to leave, he insulted her weight.
3. Asia Argento, actress
I ask all the women who have experienced such abuse of power like mine from Weinstein's friend #FabrizioLombardo to tell their story

Argento attended a Miramax party on the French Riviera in 1997. The party turned out to have 3 guests: Asia, Weinstein, and a producer. The producer left, leaving her alone with Weinstein. Soon he was in a bathrobe with a bottle of lotion. He asked for a massage, and Asia eventually relented. Shortly after she was done, he forced her legs apart and performed oral sex on her. She told him to stop repeatedly.
4. Mira Sorvino, actress
Mira starred in a string of Miramax films, but feels an uncomfortable run-in with Weinstein had a negative impact on her career. In 1995, she says he massaged her shoulders while they were alone. He then chased her around the room. A few weeks after that, he showed up at her apartment, unannounced and uninvited. She got him to leave by telling him her boyfriend was on his way.
