After the screening, she agreed to meet him back at the restaurant hotel where they were both staying, but they were turned away because it was closing. Weinstein then innocently suggested they meet in his office attached to his hotel room.

Fully aware of the rumors about the movie mogul, Geiss was hesitant at first, but agreed to join only as long as Weinstein promised he would not touch her. They even shook on it.

At first, Geiss contends the meeting was great — the two ended up having a "great conversation" about her movie, for which Harvey "seemed genuinely interested."
