Australian Actress Natalie Mendoza Describes Harvey Weinstein Groping Incident

Australian actress Natalie Mendoza has come forth as one of the latest accusers of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Australia’s Herald Sun reports that, on her Facebook page, Mendoza refers to a groping incident around 2002, when she was shooting “The Great Raid,” the first of three films she had under a three-picture deal with Miramax.

“I might have told Mr W mid-script ‘meeting’ after he sent his assistant out that I’d punch him if he didn’t take his hands off me,” she wrote.

“Shook all the way home but high-fived myself for knowing my self worth in my early 20s.

“I knew my first film would be my last after that and I was more than OK about it.”

In a second post, she added: “I was so naive I did not realise it was a set-up. I managed to escape with my integrity intact. I was shaken and dazed but OK.”

Mendoza has movie credits including “Moulin Rouge” and “The Descent: Part 2,” and TV credits including “Hotel Babylon” and “Midsomer Murders.”

In 2010, she played one of the leads in the stage version of “Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark,” but was concussed in an equipment incident.
