The American actress and Oscar winner Mira Sorvino, who had previously confessed about Weinstein's harassment, said she had become a victim of harassment as early as adolescence.

In a candid interview with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association HFPA In Conversation, the 50-year-old actress said that when she was 16, she came to audition for a casting director for the role in the horror film.

"To scare me, he tied me to a chair, hit my arm, and I was 16 years old, and then he plugged my mouth instead of gag with a condom so that I could get used to the role better," Sorvino recalled, but did not name the film, nor the name of the casting director.

Also, the actress admitted that at that time she did not even know what a condom was, and she also expressed her indignation at the fact that the casting director had a condom during the audition, the Page Six.

"It was so inadequate! And what the hell was he doing with a condom in his pocket at the audition," - said the owner of the Oscar in 1996 for the film "The Mighty Aphrodite".

Sorvino also added that after this casting she understood how the film industry works.

"When you are young, you do not ask any questions. You think you should do everything to shoot a quality scene.

Directors are pressuring you to get in touch with them, and the casting director directly says that you will get a role if you have sex with them. I often faced this, "- she said, adding that she never agreed to this, because of what and did not build a decent career.

Recall the sex scandal in Hollywood began when several famous stars accused producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, among them were Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow. Later, the accusations were joined by actress Rose McGaven, who stated that Weinstein raped her.
