She started in the business as a teen. De la Huerta claims that the former studio head forcibly raped her on two separate occasions, each of which fall under New York State's statute of limitations for rape in the first degree. De la Huerta says Weinstein started by trying to kiss her, but when she brushed him away, "He pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

"Then he pushed me onto the bed and his trousers were down and he lifted up my skirt".

I felt afraid.... It wasn't consensual ... He struck himself inside me.

"As to others, I'm not going to close the door and say that others won't come forward, but this is what we have right now, this is what we are moving forward with". Just before Christmas that year, she alleges, he showed up in the lobby of her apartment building.

De la Huerta said she was hesitant to go public with her story, but hopes her word, along with the evidence she said she's helped investigators collect, is enough to put Weinstein in jail. She was 26 at the time. "He hushed me and said, 'Let's talk about this in your apartment, '" de la Huerta said. I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, "I don't want to do this". He's like a pig. She claims he forcibly raped her then, despite her resistance.

But fellow diners recognized him and kept an eye on the producer in his glass room as he ate, according to TMZ.
