British actress Jessica Hynes says she had a creepy “casting couch” encounter with Harvey Weinstein,too.
Her claim comes a day after a bombshell reportaccusing Weinstein of sexually harassing women for decades.
“I was offered a film role at 19, Harvey Weinstein came on board and wanted me to screen-test in a bikini. I refused & lost the job,” the 44-year-old star, who appeared in several “Bridget Jones” movies, tweeted Friday.
Thursday’s New York Times expose alleged that the pervy producer paid off at least eight women to settle complaints about his lewd behavior, which included getting naked in front of them, making them watch him bathe or give him massages and pressuring them for sex.
Weinstein admitted he “bears responsibility” for his past actions — but he also accused the Times of “reckless reporting” and plans to sue the paper for $50 million.
