Another damaging report in The New Yorker this week included audio of Weinstein appearing to confess to sexual assault of Filipina-Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez in 2015. "Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual".

Glasser declined to comment, as did Bob Weinstein.

Looks like the TWC board members have some "splainin" to do...

They said in a statement: "Whilst BAFTA has previously been a beneficiary of Mr. Weinstein's support for its charitable work, it considers the reported alleged behavior completely unacceptable and incompatible with BAFTA's values". The Manhattan District Attorney's Office told ABC News in statement Tuesday, "If we could have prosecuted Harvey Weinstein for the conduct that occurred in 2015, we would have".

Weinstein was sacked Sunday by The Weinstein Co., a studio he co-founded with his brother. The paper quoted what it called people who spoke on condition of anonymity about the confidential communication.

In The New Yorker expose, a former actress, Lucia Evans, said Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex in 2004 when she was a college student. She declined the offer and never meant to complain to human resources personnel, internal records show.

She said: "I was so hesitant about speaking out.I didn't want to hurt his family".

'It's really inspiring to see that in a young woman.' the Avengers star said.

His law firm, Boies, Schiller & Flexner, has represented The Weinstein Co. and its predecessor, Miramax, in a variety of legal matters.

"I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear". "Mr. Weinstein's pattern of mistreating women, as recounted in recent reports, is disgraceful and shocks the conscience". The Times was able to identify five of them.

The latest allegations portray Weinstein as a ruthless sexual predator, who on at least one occasion sought to engage an actress in a threesome with another woman.

Paltrow says she was propositioned as a 22-year-old, while Jolie referrs to a "bad experience" in her youth. The company said it will "be clearer about these policies and decisions in the future".

Others actors as prominent as Meryl Streep and Kate Winslet said they had long heard rumors but never personally had problems with Weinstein. The magazine quotes two other women as accusing him of rape.

The New York Times publishes a story detailing decades of allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein.

The avalanche of assault accusations against Harvey Weinstein grew as more actresses came forward with explosive charges against the movie mogul, whose lurid behavior has opened a Pandora's Box of Hollywood harassment and hypocrisy.

"I don't know what else I could have done", Maerov said.
