11 Biggest Revelations From Lupita Nyong’o’s SHOCKING Op-Ed About Harvey Weinstein

'For the first time since I met him, I felt unsafe,' the Oscar winner wrote.

In 2011, Lupita Nyong’o was still a film student at the Yale School of Drama when she first met Harvey Weinstein at a 2011 awards ceremony in Berlin. “I found him to be very direct and authoritative, but also charming,” Lupita wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times. Over the next few years, the Oscar winner, 34, claims she had multiple encounters with the 65-year-old Hollywood producer,  including an incident in which he invited her into his bedroom while his children were in another room, and another where he offered to boost her career in exchange for sexual favors. Lupita joins over 40 other women who have lodged sexual harassment or assault allegations against Harvey, whose history of alleged sexual misconduct was recently exposed in two bombshell reports in The New York Times and The New Yorker. Click through for the 10 biggest revelations from Lupita’s op-ed.
