Sitting in the same courtroom as Weinstein, Hadid disclosed that she has met the disgraced movie mogul and actress Salma Hayek, a potential witness, but that she could remain impartial.

"I'm not allowed to talk about jury duty", she said.

Weinstein has pleaded not guilty to five counts that include raping a woman in 2013 and forcing another woman to engage in oral sexual conduct in 2006.

Gigi was reportedly seated just 20 feet away from Weinstein and, according to the NY Daily News, she told the judge she'd previously met Weinstein but, "I think I'm still able to keep an open mind to the facts". His trial began January 6 and could last up to two months.

Weinstein, once one of Hollywood's most powerful producers, made his mark with critically acclaimed films such as The English Patient and Shakespeare in Love.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual assault by more than 80 women since accusations against him ignited the #MeToo movement in October 2017. Weinstein has denied the allegations, saying any sexual encounters he had were consensual.

The allegations helped fuel the #MeToo movement, in which women have gone public with misconduct allegations against powerful men in business, entertainment and politics. "She was given a questionnaire to fill out and return with it on Thursday for further questioning by both the prosecution and defense".

The 24-year-old Victoria's Secret model turned heads as she arrived in court Monday, part of the latest pool of 120 potential jurors summoned for the case as jury selection continued into a second week.

"The rapist is you". The chants were heard in the 15th floor courtroom, prompting Weinstein's lawyers to ask that all the potential jurors present be dismissed.

Burke last week refused to take himself off the case, after Weinstein's defence team accused him of bias.
