The Hollywood harassment scandal continued to unfold Friday with more rape allegations brought against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, while "House of Cards" staff spoke out against Kevin Spacey in a report published Thursday evening.
"Boardwalk Empire" actress Paz de la Huerta claims Weinstein raped her twice, and now the New York Police Department detectives and the Manhattan District Attorney's office are investigating. This is the second active case involving the producer that the NYPD has taken on. Irish-Zimbabwean singer Lucia Evans is the other.
De la Huerta explained that Weinstein forced himself on her after he gave her a ride home in 2010. She claims that he did it again shortly after.
"I was very traumatized," she told Vanity Fair magazine. "I don't think I was taking very good care of myself. What happened with Harvey left me scarred for many years. I felt so disgusted by it, with myself... I became a little self-destructive. It was really hard for me to deal, to cope."
'House of Cards' PAs Accuse Spacey of Sexual Harassment
Production assistants on one of Netflix's biggest shows have accused Spacey of sexual misconduct in a bombshell CNN report. One man claimed Spacey reached into the PA's pants without consent while driving the actor to set. He then added Spacey cornered him on set and touched him inappropriately.
Another crew member told CNN that Spacey would find ways to touch him, including massaging his shoulders and touching his stomach. Six other employees have detailed their uncomfortable experiences with the actor, as well.
Spacey's publicist stated Thursday that the actor is seeking treatment. In wake of the first allegations against the actor, Netflix suspended production on the sixth and final season of "House of Cards" indefinitely.
Officers from Scotland Yard's child abuse and sexual offenses team are looking into the allegation that Spacey sexually assaulted Mexican actor Roberto Cavazos in the British capital in 2008.
"On Wednesday, 1 November, City of London Police referred an allegation of sexual assault," a London police representative said. "It is alleged a man assaulted another man in 2008 in Lambeth. Officers from the Child Abuse and Sexual Offenses Command are investigating."
The statement continued to explain that the police will not identify the person who made the claim, but according to The Guardian, the facts the police are willing to give perfectly match up with Cavazos' account of his alleged experience with Spacey.
"I certainly have treated women in a very sexist way," the actor said while receiving an honor from The Paley Center for Media on Thursday. "I've bullied women. I've overlooked women. I've underestimated women. Not as a rule, but from time to time, I've done what a lot of men do, which is... when you don't treat women the same way you treat men."
The 59-year-old actor, who regularly parodies Trump on "SNL," continued to explain what he would like to see change now that all of the sexism, sexual harassment and gender bias accusations in the work place are coming to light.
"I think it's important for us to try to make the workplace and beyond not only comfortable and right and fair and appropriate, but as productive as well," he said. "A lot of what we're dealing with within this issue is hurting our business. It's making it less productive."
