An unnamed actress is suing Harvey Weinstein after she claims he masturbated in front of her and raped her.


The actress claims in the lawsuit acquired by the Daily News that Weinstein, who she met in 2011, arranged a meeting at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills in 2015 to talk about a role on “Marco Polo.”


Jane Doe then claims the movie producer held her wrists with one hand and masturbated with the other.


A year later, the actress claims she met Weinstein again at the hotel to “celebrate her upcoming role in ‘Marco Polo,’” according to the lawsuit.

Harvey Weinstein doesn’t believe indictment is imminent


Once there, Weinsein allegedly left the room and came back in a bathrobe — a detail that multiple accusers have claimed.


The actress claims that Weinstein pulled her jeans down and began performing oral sex on her, at which point she tried to push him off.


She then said that he used his “massive weight and strength” to penetrate her without a condom.


The actress said in the suit that she was never offered a job on “Marco Polo.”

Ashley Judd calls DA investigation of Weinstein ‘a good thing’


The lawsuit also claims that the Weinstein Company knew about allegations against Weinstein.


Doe is suing for compensatory damages and money judgment for “mental pain and anguish and severe emotional distress.”


More than 100 women have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault, including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie and Cara Delevingne.


He is currently under investigation by NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and the Beverly Hills police.


In a blanket statement, Weinstein denied allegations of non-consensual sex.


Actress Dominique Huett has also sued Weinstein, accusing him of sexually assaulting her in November 2010 at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.


Weinstein’s lawyer did not immediately return a request for comment.
