Actress Sean Young Alleges Harvey Weinstein Exposed Himself to Her

“Blade Runner” star Sean Young has come forward with sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein. The actress alleges Weinstein exposed himself to her while working on the 1992 film “Love Crimes,” which was produced by Weinstein’s former company, Miramax.

Young recounted the experience on the Dudley and Bob With Matt Show podcast in Austin, Texas. She said on set, she “personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of his pants in order to shock me.”

“My basic response was, ‘You know, Harvey, I don’t really think you should be pulling that thing out, it’s not very pretty,'” Young recalled. “And then leaving, and then never having another meeting with that guy again, because it was like, ‘What on earth?'”

She said she got a bad reputation for saying no. “The minute you actually stand up for yourself in Hollywood, you’re the crazy one,” she said.

Young also claimed she was harassed by Warren Beatty and was criticized at the time by Barbra Streisand for speaking out. When she auditioned for “The Mirror Has Two Faces,” she said Streisand told her it was “disgusting” she talked to the press.

“What I had said to the press was that I was harassed. That I was sexually harassed by Warren Beatty. And she told me she thought that was disgusting,” Young said.

Streisand denied Young’s claims in a statement to Variety. “I have no memory of ever having interviewed Sean Young. I do not condone the harassment of women under any circumstance,” she wrote.

Young joins dozens of women who have spoken out recently about sexual harassment or assault involving Weinstein. He is currently under investigation by the LAPD for charges of rape.
