"We had dinner afterwards, just the two of us. He said: 'I want to put you in my films'. The next day, I had two scripts put in my hand" she said.

She went on to say that although he did not make any “inappropriate moves” towards her and she turned the roles down as she “knew what he was like”.

Harvey Weinstein is a horrible man. He's a pig. I don't want to be associated with him

she said.

“I made sure I wasn't ever in any hotel rooms with him. I was older than he thought I was. There's no story to tell”

Greene is set to appear in Lenny Abrahamson’s BBC adaptation of Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People.
