Weinstein allegedly offered her a ride home to her Tribeca apartment, where de la Huerta said Weinstein demanded to come inside and have a drink.

"Immediately when we got inside the house, he started to kiss me and I kind of brushed [him] away", De la Huerta told Vanity Fair on Wednesday. I laid there feeling sick.

"I was in no state", she said. She describes him as being drunk at the time, and insisting again on going up to her apartment.

"He pushed me on the bed. and it happened all very suddenly", de la Huerta told CBS. 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 alleges that he then removed her dress and forced himself on her.

It led to directors using a voice double that de la Huerta said left critics with a bad impression of her work. The therapist has written a letter recalling their sessions about the alleged rapes, Vanity Fair reported. At de la Huerta's request, the interview was never published.
