Rosanna Arquette spoke up about being sexually harassed by film producer Harvey Weinstein in the ’90s, when she met him to pick up a script. Arquette appeared in many TV shows and films, and carved out an impressive career in Hollywood. Though her net worth is a modest $9.0 million, she would rather do meaningful roles than take run-of-the-mill parts.
More women in Hollywood, including Judith Godrèche, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie have spoken out about being sexually harassed by Oscar-winning producer, Harvey Weinstein. Another actress who came forward with her experience while still finding her footing in Hollywood is Rosanna Arquette. Harvey Weinstein and the actress met in the early 1990s, and she alleges that he asked her to meet him at the famous Beverly Hills Hotel to pick up a script. Here are a few details from Rosanna Arquette’s wiki.
What Did Harvey Weinstein Do?
Arquette revealed that when she reached the reception of the hotel, she was told to go to Weinstein’s room, which she found odd. Weinstein greeted her in a white bathrobe, and asked her for a massage to help with his back pain. Arquette suggested that he call a professional masseuse, but says that Weinstein grabbed her hand and pulled it toward his crotch. Shocked, she immediately withdrew her hand, as Weinstein boasted about the famous actresses he supposedly slept with. He then said, “Rosanna, you’re making a big mistake” but Arquette was already heading out the door and replied, “I’m not that girl. I will never be that girl.” She did not get that part, and a representative for Weinstein indicated that he never produced that movie. Even though Arquette later had a role in Weinstein’s cult classic Pulp Fiction, she says she avoided the producer.
