Anne Herche victim of Harvey Weinstein advances

Updated: 10:30 06-02-2018

Anne Heche has joined the growing number of women who claim to have been victim to movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein, advances.

The actress claims she was fired from a job after she refused to sexually pleasure Harvey Weinstein saying it her abuse as a child helped her say no.

Heche alleges Weinstein flashed his penis at her and wanted her to give him oral sex but she refused and left his room. 

She was working on a Miramax studio movie but was kicked offset after the incident. 

In an interview Heche said: "First of all, you were threatened the second you walk out the door. I personally did not suck Harvey's d**k, although he showed it to me and I got out of the room before there was any physical contact.

"The fact is, I was fired from a job I had been hired for in Miramax. The repercussions of standing up for yourself were as deep and targeted as some of the scars of the women who actually got more physically unfortunately involved. The efforts he made to have people followed, have threats, he fired people.

"You're talking about girls, young actresses are very vulnerable. A lot of us come from hurt backgrounds. What happens when you come from a broken place, you don't have any guidance, you don't have any support, a parent you can go to. And you certainly don't want to go to Harvey's partner and say this happened.

"You come to LA, you're alone, you don't have friends that you are being able to talk to and that's what he takes advantage of, that isolated, vulnerable girl.

"That's why every one of us was 19, 20, 21 or 22. He didn't go after the 40-year-old woman. He hits on me when I'm 19, 20, 21, 22, vulnerable, scared and frightened."

In her memoir Call Me Crazy Heche reveals details of her being sexually abused as a child and explained it gave her strength to refuse Weinstein's advances.
