Sean Young is the latest to come forward with accusations against Harvey Weinstein.
The actor, best known for her role in Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, said on the Dudley and Bob with Matt Show podcast that Weinstein exposed himself to her in the early 1990s, when she was starring in the Miramax-produced Love Crimes - a production company that Weinstein headed at the time.
"I personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of his pants to shock me," she said. "My basic response was, 'You know, Harvey, I really don’t think you should be pulling that thing out, it’s not very pretty.'" Young never worked with Weinstein again after the incident.
"The minute you actually stand up for yourself in Hollywood, you’re the crazy one," she added. "I think that’s why a lot of women don’t come out and didn’t come out about their experiences about that kind of lewdness and ridiculousness with Harvey."
Young is one of over 40 women who have now come forward with accusations against the Hollywood producer. This follows an explosive report by The New York Times, which alleged "decades" of sexual harassment.
It opened the pathway for multiple women to begin coming forward, with claims ranging from sexual harassment to rape, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rose McGowan, Lupita Nyong'o, Cara Delevingne, and Asia Argento.
