Two more women have accused disgraced Hollywood big Harvey Weinstein of rape, according to reports.

British actress Lysette Anthony says Weinstein raped her in the hallway of her London home in the late 1980s while another unnamed accuser says she was raped by the mogul in 1992, according to Britain’s The Sunday Times and The BBC.

Anthony called it “pathetic, revolting” attack, which she said left her feeling “disgusted and embarrassed.”

“I remember lying in the bath later and crying,” she added.

British police are also investigating three claims from the unnamed woman, who says Weinstein assaulted her in London in 2010, 2011, and 2015.

London’s Metropolitan Police force said officers from its Child Abuse and Sexual Offenses Command are investigating.

Some thirty women, including actresses Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan, have accused Weinstein of attacks varying from harassment to rape.

As the number of accusers continued to swell, Weinstein, insists any sexual relations he had were consensual.

The 65-year-old, who was tossed from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Saturday, has also been suspended from the British film academy.
