Since movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was accused of being a sexual predator in a sensational exposé last week, more and more women have been coming forward with stories of their own.

 

The list now includes some huge Hollywood actresses, each with harrowing claims against a man they believe abused their trust and took advantage of his position in the film industry.

Heather Graham is the latest movie star to claim Weinstein inappropriately accosted her, telling Variety he 'implied' she had to have sex with him to land a role.

She explained that after a meeting with the producer, she left 'feeling uneasy' as though there was no explicit mention that she had to sleep with him to snag a script, she believes the subtext was there.

Her comments come after Gwyneth Paltrow told The New York Times that the movie mogul had sexually propositioned her when she was 22 and dating actor Brad Pitt.

“I was a kid,” she said in the interview. “I was signed up, I was petrified.”

Kiss The Girls actress Ashley Judd was one of the first leading ladies to come forward when the scandal first broke, telling the reporter that Weinstein continually pestered her with sexual invitations, that included massages, showers and shoulder rubs.
