Annabella Sciorra Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Rape and Daryl Hannah Shares a Story
The Sopranos actress Annabella Sciorra has come forward to accuse disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.
The Italian-American actress told The New Yorker that Harvey Weinstein forced his way into her New York apartment and assaulted her in 1992.
Annabella Sciorra alleges that Harvey Weinstein harassed her in the subsequent years. In the article Daryl Hannah also says she was harassed by Harvey Weinstein.
His spokeswoman again said the producer denies claims of non-consensual contacts.
On October 26, another actress, Natassia Malthe, accused Harvey Weinstein of raping her in a London hotel room in 2008.
More than 50 women have now accused the movie mogul of a range of allegations ranging from rape to harassment.

Annabella Sciorra told the New Yorker‘s Ronan Farrow that the assault happened in 1992 after she had filmed The Night We Never Met, which Harvey Weinstein produced.
Harvey Weisntein forced himself into Annabella Sciorra’s apartment in New York while she was getting ready for bed after he had dropped her off following a group dinner.
The actress said Harvey Weinstein “pushed the door open” and refused to leave when asked, before shoving her onto the bed and raping her.
“I struggled, but I had very little strength left in me,” she said.
“Like most of these women, I was so ashamed of what happened. And I fought. I fought. But still I was like, Why did I open that door?… I felt disgusting.”
Annabella Sciorra said she did not report the incident to the police, but alleges her career began to suffer and did not work again until 1995.
“I just kept getting this pushback of <<We heard you were difficult; we heard this or that>>. I think that that was the Harvey machine.”
Daryl Hannah, who starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill series that Harvey Weinstein produced, also came forward with new allegations.
She said the producer tried to force himself into her hotel room when they were promoting Kill Bill and its sequel.
Daryl Hannah said that on one occasion the producer asked to grope her and then requested that she expose herself.
Since claims against him began to surface in early October, Harvey Weinstein has joined a rehabilitation program, but he has “unequivocally denied” all allegations of non-consensual contacts.
