I could put you in my London office, and you could work there and you could be my girlfriend.'" She told The New Yorker it was "a pretty clear case of sexual harassment when your superior, the CEO, asks one of their inferiors, a temp, to have sex with them, essentially in exchange for mentorship".
The 42-year-old is one of three women interviewed by The New Yorker - two on the record - who accused Weinstein of rape.
When she was a 20-year-old student waiting tables in 1984, Weinstein, a customer, offered to help her acting career. The 48-year-old told The New York Times Weinstein undressed and chased her around a living room.
When she showed up at a meeting in his hotel room to discuss a role, he was naked in the bathtub and said that because her character might play a topless scene, it would be better for her to get "naked in front of him too", Roberts told The New York Times. In 1996, then 24, she starred in Ridicule, which opened the Cannes Film Festival.
She left, and when she later alerted the female executive, she was told not to say anything.
In a New York Times story published on Tuesday (Oct 10), she said that when she was 22, he invited her to his hotel suite for a work meeting and later proposed a massage.
She said she had fled in terror and later relayed the incident to her boyfriend at the time, actor Brad Pitt.
She told The New Yorker he forced her to perform oral sex on him in a Miramax office.
Now 50, she won an Oscar for her role in the Weinstein-produced Mighty Aphrodite in 1996.
