When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from‎ Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call....i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.

Samantha Bee blasted Harvey Weinstein and the 'creepy men of Hollywood' on her show Full Frontal Wednesday.

The outspoken comedian and media critic also shared her **** PSA for men in the workplace following the various sexual harassment claims aimed at disgraced Hollywood mogul Weinstein.

'Fellas - Comedy - Star/Hollywood - Executive - Front

'Fellas, I'm a big comedy star/Hollywood executive and I found that it's quite easy not to **** in front of my employees,' she began.

'In fact, it's one of the easiest things I do. Every day I wake up, get dressed, take the subway to work, and then don't **** in front of anyone.

Time - Urge - Front - Employee - Colleague

'Next time you get the urge to ****, just ask yourself, "Am I in front of an employee or a colleague?" And if the answer is yes, don't — just don't.'

She also took aim at the Hollywood filmmaker for his comments following the sexual assault complaints: 'I have got to change. I've got to grow. I know a lot of people would like me to go into a facility.'

Comedian - 'is - Facility - People

The comedian didn't hold back as she said: 'is a facility what people call ****?'

She also criticized another statement from Weinstein where he said: 'I came of age in the 60s and 70s, when all the rules about behavior and workplaces were different. That was the culture then.'

Bee - Gibe - Hollywood - Tycoon - Cosby

Bee took a massive gibe at the controversial Hollywood tycoon by saying: 'Oh give me a break white Cosby [...] don't blame the 60s and...
