The studio exec reportedly responded by saying, "Well, can you just stand there and shut up". "I was naive, new to the industry, and didn't know how to deal with his aggressive advances - work invitations with a friend late-night at The Toronto Film Festival, and later an invitation to meet with him about a role in The Peninsula Hotel, where staff were present and then all of a sudden disappeared like clockwork, leaving me alone with this extremely powerful and intimidating Hollywood legend".

A friend of Sivan's who was interviewed for the article and who was there at Socialista on the night told HuffPo that she'd said to Sivan that if she didn't come back from her trip with Weinstein in 10 minutes, she'd come looking for her. She took a hard pass, reminding him she had a boyfriend, and ended the call.

When asked why she waited so long to come forward with these claims, Sivan explained that had she reported the incident at the time, no one would believe her.

According to the report, former Fox News reporter Lauren Sivan has accused the producer of forcing her to watch him masturbate in the hallway of the restaurant of the nightclub Cafe Socialista.

"The New York Times published today a story that is saturated with false and defamatory statements about Harvey Weinstein", attorney Charles J. Harder said in a statement. Democratic politicians he had contributed to ferried his donations to charities supporting women in power, women took to Twitter to share their own stories of sexual harassment (there were many), and Lena Dunham wrote a powerful response on Instagram. He then proceeded to expose himself and allegedly masturbated in front of her and then ejaculated into a nearby plant. "Let's just say they have an "inconsistent" relationship".

However, notes The Hill, the DNC got $300,000 from Weinstein over the years, but donated just $30,000 from the last campaign cycle to political action groups, not women's groups. She and her friend quickly left following the encounter.

Brzezinski, who signed a July book deal with a Weinstein company, declared she would not honor her contract unless the Oscar-winning movie mogul is gone.

The Weinstein Company announced Friday that Weinstein was going on an indefinite leave pending investigation of the sexual harassment claims by an independent law firm.
