Rosie Perez took the stand last Friday to testify at the Harvey Weinstein rape trial on behalf of her friend Annabella Sciorra. The actress revisited the experience while doing press for her upcoming movie, “The Last Thing He Wanted,” at the Sundance Film Festival.

When asked how she felt after the testimony, Perez had a short, but powerful response.

“All I can say is that I’m not at liberty to comment on it,” she said. “The one thing that I will say is that when you need somebody, you always hope somebody is there. So I’m glad I was there.”

Perez testified that Sciorra told her decades ago, in the early 1990s, that Weinstein raped her.
