NEW YORK, NY – Supermodel Gigi Hadid is in the running to be a juror in Harvey Weinstein’s New York City rape trial after telling a judge Monday that she thinks she'd be able to “keep an open mind on the facts."

Hadid, who lives in Manhattan and studied criminal psychology at The New School, was among 35 potential jurors asked to return to court Thursday for additional questioning.

She's the latest in a long list of celebrities to have reported for jury duty in the city over the years.

So far, more than 140 people have been invited back for a second round of questioning, but some of them could still be eliminated based on how they've answered written questionnaires.

Sitting in the same courtroom as Weinstein, Hadid disclosed that she has met the disgraced movie mogul and actress Salma Hayek, a potential witness, but that she could remain impartial.

The 24-year-old Victoria's Secret model turned heads as she arrived in court Monday, part of the latest pool of 120 potential jurors summoned for the case as jury selection continued into a second week.

Hadid's presence added flair to what has been a tedious jury selection process.

Hadid, who has more than 51 million Instagram followers, was mobbed by photographers as she left the courthouse and left in a black SUV.
