Gigi Hadid is a potential juror in the Harvey Weinstein rape trial, CNN reports. The model was among 120 other potential candidates inside a Manhattan courtroom on Monday for jury selection.

According to the report, Hadid said she had met the former film industry mogul, but still answered “yes” when Judge James Burke asked whether she could be fair and impartial during the trial. Burke also read a list of potential witnesses and asked the jury pool if they knew of them, to which Hadid said “I have met Salma Hayek.”

Hadid is among 35 of the original 120 potential jurors asked to fill out a jury questionnaire and return to the court this Thursday, January 16.

Weinstein stands trial for allegedly raping one woman in 2013 and assaulting another in 2006. He has pleaded not guilty on two counts of rape, two counts of predatory sexual assault, and one count of a criminal sex act.
