Hollywood actress Mira Sorvino has revealed that she is also a survivor of date rape.

“I’m also a survivor of date rape. And I’ve never said that in public, and I do not want to go into detail,” Sorvino said the #TimesUp advocate. “But I have never said that last part ever in public, because it is impossible sometimes to share these sort of things, and I’m doing it here to try and help.”

Sorvino was at the center of the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct allegations after she accused him of sexual harassment and battery.

"He started massaging my shoulders, which made me very uncomfortable, and then tried to get more physical, sort of chasing me around,” she recalled to the New Yorker. She asked a male friend to turn up and pretend to be her boyfriend - shutting Weinstein down. Sorvino feels that turning down Weinstein stifled her career.

“There may have been other factors, but I definitely felt iced out, and that my rejection of Harvey had something to do with it,”
