According to the former Sports Illustrated model, the alleged incident occurred while staying aboard a boat during the Venice Film Festival.
“I was sleeping in my bed … And I wake up and Harvey is standing above my bed,” she told The Frosty, Heidi & Frank Showon KLOS 95.5 FM. “That alone is frightening. I wake up and all of a sudden he takes his pants down and starts doing his stuff and he’s blocking the door. I can’t get out and, I don’t know how to say this on the radio, but he finishes on the carpet of the floor.”
Afterwards, Weinstein allegedly advised her not to say anything about the incident.
“And he says ‘you’re a really nice girl, you shouldn’t tell anybody about this,'” she added. “I told everybody on the boat, but nobody did anything about it. Nobody wanted to do anything about it because everybody was terrified of Harvey.”
Everhart – who made her film debut in the 1993 movie The Last Action Hero – said Weinstein had the power to make or break careers and that’s why many stayed silent.
“Because in times past, people like that we’re so powerful that you wouldn’t have worked in town. I probably wouldn’t have worked ever again.”
But now that Weinstein’s despicable behavior has come to light, the 48-year-old feels a sense of justification.
“He’s so powerful – or was – and at least finally it came out. I’m so glad that this has happened. I can’t even tell you how happy I am that this has happened. Being one of the people that this has happened to, it’s very justifying.”
Unfortunately I have a horrific @HarveyWeinstein story to tell as well. Finally this Ahole is getting what he deserves
She also summed up her thoughts with a strong message for everyone to remember.
“I think the point of all of this is it’s not ok to be a victim of rape or a victim of being abused like this. It’s not ok at all.”
Everhart has joined a long list of women who have come out with similar accounts of Weinstein’s sexual harassment, including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino, Kate Beckinsale and Cara Delevingne.
Weinstein’s behavior was made public in explosive reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker.
His spokesperson released a statement saying: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”
The former head of The Weinstein Company is set to enter a treatment facility in Arizona.
