Cara Delevingne just came forward with her own terrifying Harvey Weinstein encounter
Is there anyone this scumbag hasn’t gone after?
by Amanda Ross
All week, we've been inundated with new, increasingly disgusting reports of women in Hollywood harassed, cornered, and sexually assaulted by studio head Harvey Weinstein.
Today, model-actress Cara Delevingne released a statement to a New York magazine reporter in which she details her own scary moments with Weinstein when she was first starting out as an actress.
It started with a homophobic, invasive phone call
Her first uncomfortable experience with Weinstein involved him questioning a young Cara over the phone about her sexuality.
She says he demanded to know whether she'd slept with any of the girls she'd be photographed out with. Then, she says, he told her that if she "was gay or decided to be with a woman" in the public eye, she'd never be offered a straight woman role or "make it as an actress in Hollywood."
A few years later, Weinstein cornered her in a hotel
"A year or two later, I went for a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film," she says.
After the director left, Cara says Weinstein asked her to stay with him. He started graphically describing his past sexual encounters, and then invited her up to his room. Cara says she quickly declined, and asked Weinstein's assistant if her car was outside so she could leave. The assistant said no, and encouraged Cara to go up to his room.
Up in Weinstein's room, Cara says she was initially relieved to see another woman there. That dissipated, though, when Weinstein ordered them to kiss. Cara says she tried to diffuse the situation by singing, as a sort of defense mechanism. "I thought it would make the situation better…like an audition," she says.
When Cara announced she had to leave, she says Weinstein physically blocked the door with his body and tried to kiss her on the lips. She managed to avoid him and get out of the room.
Cara says she's always felt guilt and shame about it
She got the part in the movie she met for, but says she's always felt that she was hired because of that hotel room encounter. "I felt awful that I did the movie," she says. "I felt guilty, as if I did something wrong."
Now, she says she's relieved to finally share the truth. Read her full statement here:
