As we reported, the famous supermodel was picked as a possible juror for the upcoming sexual assault trial and has made it pretty far into the process. While being questioned, the model admitted she believed she had met the disgraced movie mogul in the past as well as a few of the famous witnesses.

“I think I’m still able to keep an open mind on the facts,” she said in court.

Weinstein's attorney challenged Hadid’s ability to be impartial in the case, saying the supermodel is good friends with Cara Delevingne. Cara is one of many women who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct.

The model claimed Weinstein used his now-infamous move of luring her into his hotel room but then asked her to hook up with another woman in front of him. She says Weinstein attempted to get physical with her and she left the room.

Gigi is one of 206 other possible jurors who were ordered to the courthouse to continue questioning. On Thursday, Hadid was amongst 60 other people who were dismissed from the case.

Harvey Weinstein is charged with two counts of sexual assault, two counts of rape and one count of a criminal sex act, stemming from three women who filed police reports against the disgraced movie mogul.

Opening statements of the trial will begin January 22.
