Actress who sat on Harvey Weinstein’s lap denies romance




Harvey Weinstein apparently has a #MeToo safe space in Soho.

The disgraced movie mogul was surrounded by fawning fans at an exclusive nightclub event — including a sexy actress who sat on his lap several times and gave him adoring looks as she serenaded the crowd.

New Jersey-born actress Alexandra Vino, 30, was seen dancing seductively for the accused sex creep throughout the Thursday soiree at Cipriani’s exclusive upstairs lounge Socialista on West Broadway.

A Post reporter saw the 30-year-old movie-star wannabe repeatedly sit on the fallen film mogul’s lap and put her arms around him throughout the night.

Weinstein, 67, gawked at Vino and singer Helga Rose as the women, accompanied by a small brass band, performed “Billie Jean” and “These Boots are Made for Walkin’ ” into the early hours.

On Friday, Vino and Weinstein denied being romantically involved, with Vino telling The Post she met him just three months ago and they were only friends.

The Middletown, NJ, native, who now lives in California, most recently had a bit part in the 2018 Mark Wahlberg film “Mile 22.”

Weinstein also denied they were together — and even insisted that she was even not on his lap the night before but was only sitting on the arm of his chair.

“She is not canoodling me!” he told The Post.

Socialista was once located on West Street and is the same lounge where Weinstein allegedly masturbated in front of a woman more than a decade ago. It closed and has now reopened three nights a week at Cipriani.

Despite the serious nature of the allegations against him, Weinstein was treated like royalty at the club on Thursday night — with several patrons approaching him to offer compliments.

“I love your movies,” one man told Weinstein.

Others shook his hand and rubbed his shoulder as he enjoyed the evening in the chic lounge styled after pre-revolutionary Cuba.

As for Vino — who sources said met the fallen producer through Rose — a source close to Weinstein told The Post that the two dated for several weeks in 2018, ­despite their denials that they were ever an item.

Weinstein’s most recent appearance comes just weeks after an actress who spotted him at a party in Alphabet City ripped into him.

“I’m going to stand four feet from a f–king rapist? And nobody’s going to say anything?” actress Zoe Stuckless shouted at Downtime Bar when she saw the shamed ­mogul.

Weinstein is set to stand trial in Manhattan Supreme Court in January on charges he sexually assaulted two women in 2006 and 2013 and could face life in prison.
