But she went up to his room because she "had a business appointment" with him. "That's his pattern of sexual predation. That was how he rolled," Judd said
The actress claimed she denied Weinstein’s repeated requests for massages and for her to watch him shower.
"He kept coming back at me with all this other stuff. And finally I just said, 'When I win an Oscar in one of your movies, OK?' And he was like, 'Yeah, when you get nominated.' And I said, 'No, when I win an Oscar!' I just fled," she said.
Judd continued, “Am I proud of that? I’m of two minds. The part that shames myself says, ‘No.’ The part of me that understands the way shame works says, ‘That was absolutely brilliant. Good job, kid. You got out of there. Well done.’ It’s a very important word, ‘shame,’ and it’s a very important thing to talk about.”

In the weeks since the Times article, more than 65 women have come forward with their own allegations against Weinstein. He issued an apology for inappropriate behavior, but denied the allegations that he raped several women.
Judd said she hopes Weinstein learns from the scandal, and said she hopes she can find the right words to say if she ever comes face-to-face with him again.
