(AP) – A woman who says Harvey Weinstein raped her was back on the witness stand Tuesday, a day after she became so upset while being questioned by the movie mogul’s lawyers that the judge suspended her cross examination.

The accuser began her third day of testimony with her composure restored.

Subdued and somber, the woman stared at jurors and told them she wanted them to know that Weinstein was "my rapist.”

Her answers were short and somber, with none of the anguish she displayed Monday, when she sobbed as she left the courtroom.

The woman is expected to be on the stand much of the day Tuesday as Weinstein’s lawyers continue a painstaking review of emails and other evidence they say paint the 34-year-old as a manipulative liar.

The Associated Press is withholding the woman’s name because it is not clear if she wishes to be identified publicly.

Weinstein has said any sexual encounters were consensual.
