Another actress has emerged to accuse disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein of unwanted advances, and says she belted him “where it hurt.”

Monica Potter says she was denied a job in “The Cider House Rules” after rejecting Weinstein, who is accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women.

“I lost out on that role because of that hairy pig,” Potter said Friday during an interview with Cleveland news station WKYC.

The actress, 47, previously hadn’t shared her allegation against Weinstein.

“I didn’t do something, so therefore I missed out on it,” Potter said of the role. “I’m not saying the person who got it did, I’m just saying I didn’t.”

She said Weinstein “tried three times” with her.

“Twice was in New York and then once was in London,” she told the NBC station.

The actress said she “flat out belted” Weinstein at one point, adding she “really hit him where it hurt.”
Potter did not say which role she was in consideration for in the 1999 drama. Charlize Theron played the lead female role of Candy Kendall in the movie.

Weinstein’s rep denied Potter’s allegation in a statement, saying the producer has “great respect” for the actress.
