In a new documentary about to be broadcast on Three, New Zealand-born model Zoe Brock explains how being "f**king furious" at Harvey Weinstein helped her escape a potential sexual assault.
She says screaming at him in anger stopped his attack and reduced him to tears.
Weinstein: The Inside Story is an investigation into how the disgraced movie mogul allegedly concealed allegations of sexual abuse going back decades.

In the documentary, Brock recounts her story of meeting Weinstein at the Cannes Film Festival in the '90s before he got her alone in a hotel room.
"Then Harvey walked back in and he was naked," she says.
"Ugh, that's a sight. I think Harvey knows what a sight that is and that's part of it, you know.
"It's discombobulating because this person has been acting like a mentor, making you feel like you're fabulous. Then all of a sudden, there's a dick in your face, literally."
She says after rushing to the bathroom and locking herself in, he chased her and started banging on the door.
"I was f**king furious. I screamed at him, 'Put your f**king clothes on you naughty f**king boy!' And I meant it. And it worked. I came out of the bathroom and he was apologising, and he started to cry."
In between his sobs, Brock says Weinstein told her: "You don't like me because I'm fat."
On Wednesday morning, New Zealand broadcaster Polly Gillespie asked Brock if being brought up in New Zealand and Australia helped her escape a situation so many other women were allegedly unable to.
"No. I think it was pure dumb luck," she replied.
"One of the things we need to have a conversation about is how we as humans individually react to trauma. I just happen to be extremely lucky that, by a series of awful instances that have happened in my life, I became the sort of person who when faced with something like that gets angry."
Weinstein: The Inside Story screens tonight on Three at 9pm.
