1980s actress Heather Kerr says Harvey Weinstein made her touch his genitals

Former actress Heather Kerr said Friday that she too was a victim of Harvey Weinstein, charging that the now-disgraced film mogul sexually assaulted her during a business meeting in 1989.

Kerr, speaking during a news conference alongside her attorney, Gloria Allred, alleged that Weinstein forced her to touch his genitals and told her that she had to be good in bed, as well as sleep with him and others, if she wanted a career in Hollywood.

“What he wanted to know was whether she could satisfy him sexually in order to obtain roles in their films,” Allred said. “He told her that this was ‘how things worked in Hollywood and that all actresses made it that way… by sleeping their way into the jobs that they had.”
