“Mira Sorvino just revealed a shockingly disgusting story about a casting director who she says scared the crap outta her for a role … by gagging her with a condom when she was 16,” TMZ reports. “She dropped the bombshell Wednesday during the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s ‘HFPA In Conversation’ podcast.”
The actress said the incident happened during one of her first auditions, which was for a horror movie. She did not name the casting director.
“Mira — who’s also accused Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing her multiple times in the ’90s — said the casting director claimed to be getting her in the mood for the horror scene by tying her to a chair and bruising her arm. Then, the condom,” TMZ reports.
