Nyong'o accused Weinstein of several incidents of harassment in an op-ed piece published by The New York Times on Thursday, including a 2011 incident in which she said the mogul tried to give her a massage at his CT home.

It also prompted dozens of alleged victims of Weinstein's actions to come forward.

A representative for Weinstein has stated, that allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.

The actress, director and producer writes that she first met the now-disgraced producer in 2011 when she was in her final year at the Yale School of Drama. Dinner followed, with her friends relegated to a non-Harvey table. Weinstein invited Nyong'o to his house in Westport, Connecticut to watch a film in his private screening room with his family and to talk to her about a potential role.

"You are going to drink that", he responded, Nyong'o recounted, but she did not budge.

Once in the bedroom, Lupita says Harvey asked if he could give her a massage.

"I think we are at a watershed moment, this is a sea change".

She continued, "I stayed away from him after (that)". "I became a 'movie star.'" As a "movie star" and, soon, Oscar victor, Nyong'o received very different treatment from Weinstein but, keeping a promise she had already made to herself, refused to work with him despite repeated offers.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are among the actresses to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment, while Rose McGowan said he raped her.

She said she thought it would buy her time to get out of the situation, but then she said the producer said he wanted to take off his trousers.

"I protested that I wanted to finish the film first, but he insisted I go with him, laying down the law as though I too was one of his children".

They didn't cross paths again until the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, which she was attending in support of "12 Years a Slave".

Now, the NYPD says that along with "several other new allegations made in recent days", they're also exploring a claim by actress Lucia Stoller, who says Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him at his Tribeca office in 2004. The assault, she said, was in 1992, and she is considering issuing a formal complaint to police.

"He told me not to be so naïve", Nyong'o wrote.

Nyong'o later vowed to herself to never work with Weinstein. "He then dragged me to the bathroom and forcibly raped me". I said thank you and left it at that. (She reportedly had video evidence that she gave to the police as well.) An anonymous former Miramax employee using the pseudonym Sarah Smith told the Daily Mail she was raped by Weinstein in the basement apartment below Miramax's offices in southwest London. "I found him pushy and idiosyncratic more than anything", she said of their second meeting. And now I literally was texting with her, and she said, "Are you mad at me?' And I said, 'Mad at you?"

"Though we may have endured powerlessness at the hands of Harvey Weinstein, by speaking up, speaking out and speaking together, we regain that power".
