Natassia Malthe Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Raping Her after BAFTA Awards Ceremony

0

Natassia Malthe has accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in a London hotel room after the 2008 BAFTA awards ceremony.

The Norwegian actress and model told a press conference in New York she met Harvey Weinstein at an after party and felt pressured into telling him she was staying at the Sanderson Hotel.

Natassia Malthe alleges Harvey Weinstein banged on her door, she let him in and he raped her.

The movie mogul has previously issued a statement saying he denies all allegations of non-consensual contacts.


Natassia Malthe, who has appeared in movies including This Means War alongside Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, said she was asleep when she was awoken by Harvey Weinstein’s “repeated pounding” on the door.

The actress said she heard someone yelling: “Open the door Natassia Malthe, it’s Harvey Weinstein.”

She said she received a script the next day and then returned to Los Angeles. Natassia Malthe said she was given the impression she had landed a role in the movie Nine, a film produced by Harvey Weinstein that would star Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman and Dame Judi Dench.

Natassia Malthe said Harvey Weinstein later asked her to meet him at the Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel, telling her an assistant would be present.

However, the actress said when she got there, he instead asked her to join him and another woman.

She says she refused and when she later called him to turn down a role in one of his movies, he became angry and verbally abusive.

Natassia Malthe’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, said the Norwegian actress is “considering” whether to make a report to police over the allegation.

The news comes the day after a former production assistant, Mimi Haleyi, also accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 2006.

Another actress and model, Dominique Huett, also said she was raped by Harvey Weinstein. She has now has become the first woman to sue The Weinstein Company, alleging a single count of negligence.
