The actress added that she had been hesitant to speak out about her experience with Weinstein.

Her statement comes one day after several women, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, came forward to provide more details about Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment in the wake of reports in the New York Times and the New Yorker. Clooney called Weinstein's behavior "indefensible" and "disturbing on a whole lot of levels".

"We should celebrate the courage of women who have come forward to tell these painful stories", Obama said.

The Italian film actress and director has not spoken out until now, saying she feared it would ruin her career to do so.

"I'm sorry I missed the mark.

All my best, Harvey", said the real Weinstein to the prankster.

The high-profile attorney, who is well-known for representing women in sexual harassment cases, resigned from representing Weinstein on Saturday amid criticism over representing the producer after the New York Times uncovered decades of allegations of sexual harassment against him.


Weinstein was sacked late Sunday from his own film studio, three days after a New York Times report alleged that the man behind such hits as "The King's Speech" and "The Artist" had preyed on young women hoping to break into the industry. "I'm in Dubai, I'm home, and I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don't think it's right what's going on". She claims she was forced into a sexual act by the producer.

"I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband", Lohan continued.

Other allegations in the piece came from Mira Sorvino, who won an Oscar in 1996 for her role in Mighty Aphrodite for Miramax, a studio headed by Weinstein at the time.

Weinstein made two contributions to Emanuel's mayoral campaigns - $5,600 just last June and $5,300 in September, 2013. She told the magazine that Weinstein had tried to pressure her into a relationship.

Weinstein's spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister issued a statement in response to the allegations in the article.

Argento acknowledges that her credibility may be compromised by the fact that she eventually yielded to his advances, even growing close to him and having consensual sex with him multiple times over the following five years.
