How long will the Harvey Weinstein saga continue?
Frontline reveals new details in its new PBS special titled Weinstein at 9 ET/PT on Friday ahead of Oscars weekend.
As we previously reported actress Sean Young went public and had given her account to print media, she now detailed her account in front of the camera, where she recounted her sexual encounter with now disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.
The actress was starred in movie mogul’s 1992 film Love Crimes. Young said in an early version of the special which made available for review, “I was sitting in Harvey’s office after the picture.” She continued, “And this is the only time this has ever happened to me – he pulled his thing out. And my response was, ‘You know, Harvey, i really wouldn’t be pulling that thing out because it’s really not pretty. And I got up and I left.”
In his defense, Weinstein told Frontline that the actress’ account was completely “untrue.”
And the two never worked together. “The reason that I never got another movie with Harvey Weinstein was that I made him feel foolish,” Young explained. “I was set to have a very big career, but I upset a few very important men. And the trajectory of my career went (all the way down).”
Frontline also comes with a new accusation made against Weinstein from Suza Maher-Wilson, the two worked on the producer’s 1981 film The Burning. Wilson recalled a wrap party incident where Weinstein asked her to give him a massage in his hotel room off the hotel’s lobby.
She said, “I agreed, being a 23-year-old, naïve, trusting young woman.” She went on to say that after Weinstein himself to go to the bathroom, “he came out and he was naked with a towel. It was a little shocking. And I just said, ‘I’m sorry, this isn’t what I signed on for. And I left the room immediately.'”
