NEW YORK — Actress Annabella Sciorra is confronting Harvey Weinstein at his New York City rape trial.
With her voice quivering, Sciorra testified Thursday about an accusation she kept largelty private for decades: That Weinstein pushed his way into her apartment, pinned her to a bed and raped her in the early 1990s.
It’s the first of several expected confrontations between Weinstein and his accusers at a watershed trial for the #MeToo movement. He has insisted any sexual encounters were consensual.
Weinstein is charged with forcibly performing oral sex on a former “Project Runway” production assistant in 2006 and raping an aspiring actress in 2013.
