Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein reportedly pressured a young model to watch him while he took a shower, according to audio released Tuesday by The New Yorker.
The New Yorker published audio from a New York Police Department operation, reportedly from a 2015 encounter between Italian model Ambra Battilana Gutierrez and Weinstein in his hotel. While the two stood in the hallway outside his hotel room, Weinstein tells Gutierrez about the actresses he has helped while trying to get her into his room while he showers.
“You must come here now,” Weinstein says in the audio while Gutierrez resists. “Please. Now you’re embarrassing me.”
“No, I don’t want to. Yesterday was kind of aggressive for me,” Gutierrez says, ostensibly referring to Weinstein grabbing her breasts and attempting to touch her underneath her skirt.

“I swear I won’t do a thing. Just sit there. Sit with me. Please sit there,” Weinstein continues while Gutierrez says she doesn’t want to. “Go to the bathroom. Listen to me.”
“I’m feeling very uncomfortable right now,” Gutierrez says.
“It’s five minutes. Don’t ruin your friendship with me for five minutes,” Weinstein responds.
