Harvey Weinstein Also Raped Paz de la Huerta

Remember 4 years ago when me and everyone else was giving Paz de la Huerta s**t for being pretty much wasted every day? Well, now I feel like an asshole because she says she started spiraling out of control after Harvey Weinstein raped her. Twice.

Paz told Vanity Fair that, in October 2010, Harvey Weinstein offered her a ride home after a party and forced himself on her.

“Immediately when we got inside the house, he started to kiss me and I kind of brushed [him] away,” De La Huerta said. “Then he pushed me onto the bed and his pants were down and he lifted up my skirt. I felt afraid. It wasn’t consensual. It happened very quickly. He stuck himself inside me. When he was done he said he’d be calling me. I kind of just laid on the bed in shock.”

Sadly, this wasn’t the last time Harvey came calling. A few weeks later, Harvey showed up in her lobby after she came back from a photo shoot.

“He hushed me and said, ‘Let’s talk about this in your apartment. I was in no state. I was so terrified of him. I did say no, and when he was on top of me I said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ He kept humping me and it was disgusting. He’s like a pig. He raped me.”

A letter from her therapist corroborated her claims. De la Huerta says the rapes were a major reason her career imploded, getting kicked off Boardwalk Empire after 2 seasons, and probably why she started drinking all the time.

The good news is the rapes are within New York’s statute of limitations. 10 days ago, Paz came forward to the NYPD about the assault and gave them her evidence. A senior sex crimes prosecutor has been assigned to the case.

However, because it’s Harvey Weinsten, there’s no way he’s going to be doing time. Unless by doing time you mean on house arrest eating lobster tails and jerking off into potted plants for 120 days.
