New Zealand actor and model Zoe Brock, who grew up in Australia, was 23 when she says she had her own terrifying experience with Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein.
Brock says she was seated next to Weinstein at Cannes Film Festival, almost 20 years ago. On Sunday night’s episode of 60 Minutes, she recounted the night she’s never forgotten.
“I thought he was creepy and I thought he was a pervert but I kind of felt he was a bit pathetic,” she told Tara Brown.
The night progressed to a number of locations, and eventually, Brock alleges she found herself in a taxi with Weinstein and two others, heading to Hotel du Cap. She says she was under the impression others were joining them, but the ‘group’ never came. After a few minutes, the two men with Weinstein left to “make some calls,” and it was at this point Brock claims she was “starting to realise something was wrong… and sobering up fast”.

“It was sudden,” she says. “He just left the room… came back in naked. Just like that.”
According to Brock, Weinstein begged her to let him massage her, and for a moment, he rubbed her shoulders. But she quickly decided it wasn’t what she wanted, so shrugged his hands off her, and ran to the bathroom.
