He wouldn't take no for an answer.

"It's a civil case and one of her motivations is to kind of clean up Hollywood by holding the (Weinstein) company accountable for the casting couch, which would be a seismic shift in Hollywood", he said.

In a press conference Tuesday in NY held by lawyer Gloria Allred, Mimi Haleyi claimed Weinstein forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006. "He held me down on the bed".

Haleyi claims that she first met Weinstein at the European premiere of 'The Aviator, ' then bumped into him again in 2006 while she was at the Cannes Film Festival. Weinstein then suggested that he perform oral sex on her, the lawsuit states.

Allred is representing three accusers who have gone public with accusations against the co-founder of Miramax and The Weinstein Co. She worked as a production assistant on a Weinstein Co. -produced television series, though she and Allred declined to name the show. Another article from The New Yorker said that several women alleged he sexually assaulted them.

Weinstein "was a complete gentleman" during that follow-up meeting, she recalled. The lawyer says "numerous" other women have contacted her as well.

"I want this to end", she said.

When Weinstein returned from Paris, he invited her to his residence, which had children's drawings on display, she said. "It is time for him to take meaningful action to demonstrate in deeds, not just words, that he is taking responsibility for what he has done and that he is willing to make amends to the victims", she said Tuesday.

"I said I'm on my period, there's no way this is going to happen, please stop. I was mortified", Haleyi said, beginning to weep as the cameras rolled.

Haleyi claims Weinstein later came to her NY apartment and pleaded with her to come on a romantic-sounding trip to Paris. Burke said the intention behind the catchphrase was to connect survivors of sexual abuse who might join together in solidarity and healing.

The new movie, they say, will illuminate the "behavior of predatory perpetrators such as Harvey Weinstein and others", and the culture that "enables and protects them". "I grabbed his hand and squeezed it violently to hurt him and proceeded to hold it in place on his own thigh". "I didn't think at that time that enough people were sharing their stories".

A New York Times report said Weinstein settled sexual harassment claims with at least eight actresses and staffers.

Pieces of the interview will air across the network's news shows, including Good Morning America, World News Tonight With David Muir and Nightline, as well as its digital and radio divisions.
