"The size of the list...appears to corroborate claims that sexual misconduct allegations against the 65-year-old were an open secret throughout Hollywood", the Observer reported. As per the report, the now disgraced Hollywood producer had a secret list of around 100 names to unveil the information about the sexual harassment or assault allegations against him.

The list contains the names of several actresses and employees who have since come forward to accuse Weinstein of preying on them, including Rose McGowan and Laura Madden.

Apparently, the list had prepared by Weinstein himself, the secret list was distributed to his team whom he hired to suppress the sexual misconduct claims and allegations against him.

Scores of women, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Lena Headey, have come forward with allegations of sexual assault against Weinstein since the New York Times claimed that Weinstein had allegedly paid off women who had accused him of sexual assault since the 1980s. McGowan denies such accusations, according to her, so she want to take revenge on the people of Weinstein, the guilt she does not recognize. Actress Sophie Dix, who accused Weinstein of sexual harassment in a London hotel in 1990, was also named.

Perkins revealed in October she broke a confidentiality agreement to describe alleged sexual harassment by the Hollywood producer.

More than 50 of the names were typed in red to identify who should be prioritized by investigators. Among them were McGowan, Dix and Madden.

So far, nearly 60 women have come forward with allegations of rape, harassment and inappropriate behavior against Weinstein, prompting police investigations by the NYPD, LAPD, Scotland Yard and the Beverly Hills police.

Ninety-one names of actors, publicists, producers, financiers and others in the industry reportedly made up the list, which was allegedly part of Weinstein's attempt to silence his accusers, The Guardian said.
