Lupita Nyong'o shares Weinstein story

Calvin Klein Collection- Front Row- September 2017- New York Fashion Week

And she's sharing it in hopes of doing her part to end what she calls in a New York Times op-ed a "conspiracy of silence".

Nyong'o repeatedly denied Weinstein's overtures, and eventually, Weinstein said they were "done here", and that she "can leave". She's one of the first women of color to accuse Weinstein of harassment publicly, as well as the first Black woman in Hollywood to do so.

Los Angeles police confirmed on Thursday that they are investigating Weinstein over an alleged sex attack that took place in 2013, the sixth such allegation against the producer.

She wrote that not only did Weinstein attempt to ply her with alcohol when she met with him at a restaurant in 2011 but after they moved the meeting to his home to watch a film screening; he offered her a massage, which appears to echo the other stories of his sexual harassment.

OSCAR-WINNING actress Lupita Nyong'o has claimed Harvey Weinstein tried to remove his trousers and offered to massage her while his children were in the house.

"I thought he was joking at first", Lupita wrote. Because that instance appeared so professional, she wrote, "He was definitely a bully, but he could be really charming, which was disarming and confusing". Nothing happened on that occasion but the next time they met - at a dinner in TriBeCa, New York - Weinstein propositioned her, the actor said.

The Kenyan-Mexican actress, now 34, claims that shortly she arrived he "insisted" in front of his children that she follow him and she was led to his bedroom. Nyong'o says she deferred, instead offering to give him a massage and remain in control.

Lupita Nyong'o was still in school when she first met Harvey Weinstein. "I reasoned that it had been inappropriate and uncalled-for, but not overtly sexual", she said.

"I felt less alone this week than I have ever felt", she added, per Elle.

"With all due respect, I would not be able to sleep at night if I did what you are asking, so I must pass", she said.

Following the alleged "massage incident", she admitted she "shelved it" in her mind as an "awkward moment". Prior to the screening they had lunch, where she said he tried to get her to drink against her will, to which she did not acquiesce.

The actress describes one instance in which Weinstein asked her for a massage, something that numerous producer's accusers have recounted. Soon after, Weinstein convinced Nyong'o to come to his home for a film screening. "I have a private room upstairs where we can have the rest of our meal". "I told him I preferred to eat in the restaurant". However, when he insisted on taking off his trousers despite her protest, the star insisted that she leave.

"I don't know about your career, but you'll be fine", he reportedly said.

"I began to massage his back to buy myself time to figure out how to extricate myself from this undesirable situation", she wrote.

Lupita Nyong'o has joined the long list of celebrities speaking out against #Harvey Weinstein on allegations of sexual assault.

"I share all of this now because I know now what I did not know then". Thank you for your bravery. He put his shirt on and again mentioned how stubborn I was...

"Though we may have endured powerlessness at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, by speaking up, speaking out and speaking together, we regain that power. And we hopefully ensure that this kind of rampant predatory behavior as an accepted feature of our industry dies here and now".
