Headey first met him at the Cannes Film Festival in 2005 while she was promoting The Brothers Grim, which was promoted by Weinstein.

They met again years later, under the pretense of a business meeting.

Weinstein pulled his trick of trying to lure her into a hotel room to give her a script. "My whole body went into high alert," she wrote.

"I felt completely powerless," Headey explained. Weinstein proceeded to threaten her, grabbing her and demanding, "Don't tell anyone about this, not your manager, not your agent."

"I got into my car and I cried," she wrote.

Headey retweeted a fan thanking her for calling out director Terry Gilliam in sharing her story, as well.
