"Game of Thrones" star Lena Headey (she plays Cersei) accused disgraced film executive Harvey Weinstein of some inappropriate behavior.
The British actress posted a series of tweets describing when she first met Weinstein, at the Venice Film Festival as her movie, "The Brothers Grimm", was showing, back in 2005.
She said he asked her to take a walk with him down to the water, then made "some suggestive comment, a gesture," which she laughed off.Headey writes, "I was genuinely shocked, I remember thinking this has got to be some kind of joke, I said something like, Oh come on mate?!?! It'd be like kissing my dad!"
Years later, she met him again in Los Angeles at breakfast. He tried to ask her about her love life, she shifted the conversation to something less personal. He asked her up to his room to show her some scripts and walked her to the elevator.
"The energy shifted, my whole body went into high alert," she wrote. She told him she wasn't interested in anything other than work and not to think she got into the elevator with him for any other reason. "I don't know what possessed me to speak out at that moment, only that I had such a strong sense of don't come near me."
He was silent and "furious" in the elevator after she spoke; she said she felt "powerless" as he walked her to the room with his hand on her back. He got angrier when they reached the door and the key wouldn't work. He walked her back to the elevator and through the hotel to the valet, "grabbing and holding tightly to the back of my arm."
She writes, "He paid for my car and whispered in my ear, Don't tell anyone about this, not your manager, not your agent. I got in my car and cried."
