Gentile disclosed that her first encounter with the actor occurred at a restaurant nearby her home in New York City.
She claimed that his first impression was that of a gentleman; he offered her a ride to her home and then went inside with her for a coffee.
She became emotional while proclaiming that Noth had assaulted her in her room, and when she resisted, he imperilled her.
Recalling the incident, she exclaimed with a dry mouth,
‘Noth forcibly pulled me against him and began squeezing my breasts. I grabbed his hands with my hands and tried to stop it.’
She uttered in a distressing tone,
‘I finally managed to push them away and get out of his grasp and yell, ‘No, I don’t want this.’
