Speaking to a journalist from the magazine she said that the rape occurred after she had finished filming The Night We Never Met which Weinstein produced. She said that he ‘pushed the door open’ before refusing to leave and then raping her. ‘I struggled, but I had very little strength left in me.’ ‘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.’

She went on to say that she didn’t work for a very long time after that and she suspected that Harvey Weinstein had been bad mouthing her to other people in the industry, claiming that she was difficult to work with. People later told her ‘We heard you were difficult; we heard this or that.’
