Woman Says Weinstein Interviewed Her For Job In Boxers At Westport Home

WESTPORT, Conn. — Actress, comedian and writer Sarah Ann Masse said that Harvey Weinstein was in his underwear when he interviewed her at his Westport home in 2008 for a job as a nanny, according to Variety.

Masse, who was working as a nanny at that time, is the latest woman to come forward and accuse the movie mogul of sexual harassment. It is the first accusation that took place in Weinstein's home in Westport.

A New Yorker article said Weinstein sexually assaulted three women, and a New York Times story detailed his sexual harassment of multiple actresses, employees and others.

Weinstein, who won an Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love," was expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Masse told Variety that her agency notified her of a job to babysit Weinstein’s three children from his first marriage.

She went to his house in Westport, and Weinstein opened the door wearing just his boxer shorts and an undershirt, Variety said.

Masse said she found it strange, but finished the interview anyway, Variety said. She also told Variety that he yelled at his children when they interrupted the interview and didn't introduce them.

At the end of the interview, Weinstein grabbed Masse, hugged her for a long time and told her that he loved her, Variety said.

Masse didn't get the nanny job — she was told it because she was pursuing an acting career at the time, Variety said.
