Harvey Weinstein tricked by email prankster

The former news reporter said she remained silent due to Weinstein's tremendous clout in the media industry

"I thought he was going to fire me", she said.

The prankster also fooled Weinstein himself, posing as former White House communications director Anita Dunn, who Weinstein reportedly consulted with after the damaging story in the Times.

Weinstein's spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister issued a statement in response to the article.

Delevingne starred in the film Tulip Fever, which Weinstein produced, but it remains unclear if that's the movie she is referencing in her statement. The accusation comes as Weinstein is engulfed in a scandal involving his decades-long sexual harassment of women in the film industry.

Streep, who in 2012 called Weinstein "God" in a Golden Globe acceptance speech and appeared in numerous films produced by him, said the "disgraceful news about Harvey Weinstein has appalled those of us whose work he championed".

Firth, who worked with Weinstein in 2011 on "The King's Speech" and won an Oscar for his performance, told the Guardian newspaper that the producer "was a powerful and frightening man to stand up to".

Argento acknowledges that her credibility may be compromised by the fact that she eventually yielded to his advances, even growing close to him and having consensual sex with him multiple times over the following five years. I think everyone needs to stop - I think it's wrong.

Three women in the New Yorker have accused Weinstein of rape, pointing to specific instances of unwanted sexual acts. She told the magazine that Weinstein had tried to pressure her into a relationship.

Obama's daughter, Malia, also did an internship for the Weinstein Company in NY months before the sexual harassment scandal broke.

Barack and Michelle Obama have broken their silence on the sexual abuse allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Delevingne described receiving a call from Weinstein early in her acting career, once in which the producer asked her if she'd "slept with any of the women [she] was seen out with in the media".

The Times, as well as various entertainment media, separately reported on Tuesday that the litany of Weinstein's harassment victims also included Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rosanna Arquette and French actress Judith Godreche.
