NEW YORK (Reuters) - Actress Rosie Perez took the stand in the rape trial of Harvey Weinstein on Friday to bolster the account of friend and fellow actress Annabella Sciorra, who said she was raped by the former Hollywood producer in the early 1990s.
Weinstein, 67, has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting two other women, Mimi Haleyi and Jessica Mann.
Sciorra, who appeared in The Sopranos, testified on Thursday that Weinstein violently raped her more than 25 years ago.
Since 2017, more than 80 women, including many famous actresses, have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
