NY,OCt13:Actress Claire Forlani recounted how she ‘ducked, dived and ultimately got out of’ meetings with producer Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by at least 30 women.
Forlani, who has starred in Meet Joe Black and was among the cast of the Miramax-distributed 2000 film Boys and Girls, said that she was previously approached by Ronan Farrow to participate in his piece that was published earlier this week about Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct.
The 45-year-old actress said that she initially decided against participating, and now regrets not coming forward.
‘[Farrow] didn’t mention that it was about Harvey but when I received the email I instinctively knew it was going to be,’ she wrote in a post shared to her Twitter page.
‘I told some close men around me and they all advised me not to speak. I had already told Ronan I would speak with him but from the advice around me, interestingly the male advice around me, I didn’t make the call.
