Jessica Mann Biography – Jessica Mann Wiki
Jessica Mann is a former actress who has accused Harvey Weinstein of allegedly raping her inside a NYC hotel room after he injected himself with medication to maintain his erection.
Mann, who grew up on a dairy farm in Washington, said she first met Weinstein at a party in the Hollywood Hills in late 2012 or early 2013. Having just moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career, Mann described her naïveté in not initially knowing who the then-mogul was. Mann said Weinstein expressed an interest in helping her career and, later, took her to a bookstore to buy her reading material about the history of Hollywood and invited her to a dinner meeting with Barbara Schneeweiss, then a producer at The Weinstein Company.

Jessica Mann Harvey Weinstein
Jessica met Harvey Weinstein at a party in the Hollywood Hills in 2013. At the time she told the court that she was struggling with breaking into the industry, recounting a period where she was homeless and living out of her car. She alleged that after meeting Harvey he said he liked her look and would help her get parts in movies. In the weeks that followed, Mann said she saw Weinstein several times, including for dinners. She added that she thought meeting Harvey was a blessing.
Ms Mann’s evidence came at the end of the fourth week of the Manhattan trial of the Oscar-winning Hollywood mogul, who produced films including Shakespeare in Love and The English Patient.
The 34-year-old said she met him in late 2012 or early 2013 at a party, and she told him of her ambition to be an actress. Later, she said, he invited her and a friend to a Los Angeles hotel suite. He then allegedly pulled Ms Mann into a bedroom and performed oral sex on her.
Ms Mann then began a relationship with Mr Weinstein. “I entered into what I thought was going to be a real relationship with him and it was extremely degrading from that point on,” she said.
She said he once urinated on her, and in 2013 raped her in a Manhattan hotel room. “If he heard the word ‘no,’ it was like a trigger for him,” she said.
When asked why she stayed in the relationship, Ms Mann said in tears that there was “no short answer”.
“One of the aspects initially was that I had had a sexual encounter” with him, she said. “That wasn’t something I could undo. That really confused me and hurt me.” She stayed with him partly out of fear, she said.
In graphic testimony that left her sobbing in the New York courtroom, the key prosecution witness described her “manipulative” encounters with the former Hollywood mogul and how she “faked an orgasm” after she said he orally sexually assaulted her in an L.A. hotel room in order to end the experience as quickly as possible. Her accusations represent at least two of the five felony counts that Weinstein faces; he has pleaded not guilty.
