The Psychology Professor Who Came Forward with Her Harvey Weinstein Story
On October 10, Tomi-Ann Roberts—alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and others—spoke out against film producer Harvey Weinstein, sharing her story in a New York Times feature. Roberts says that in 1984, when she was a Smith College student and aspiring actress, she met Weinstein while waiting tables in a New York City restaurant. They chatted, and he encouraged her to audition for one of his movies, even sending her scripts and an invitation to meet. Roberts says that when she arrived for the meeting, Weinstein was in the bathtub, nude, and wanted her to remove her top.
