She’s the latest star to come forward with allegations of improper behaviour regarding the shamed movie mogul.
Actress and model Cara Delevingne is the latest A-list female to claim Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her.
The 25-year-old Valerian star made the sensational claim in a statement published on her Instagram account, on Wednesday evening.
In the caption of the post she claims it was during a meeting at a hotel that Weinstein tried to have her kiss another unnamed woman, before the movie producer himself attempted to kiss her.
The Instagram itself is a picture of a slogan, which reads: “Don’t be ashamed of your story, it will inspire others”.
The British star claims her encounter with the former Miramax boss happened early on in her acting career – land marking it around 2014/15 (her movie debut was in Paper Towns).
It was also in 2015 that Cara came out in as bisexual in a candid interview with Vogue, which saw her finally confirm her relationship with indie rocker St. Vincent (Annie Clark).
In fact, it was only last year that a film staring Delevingne and listing Weinstein as a producer, Tulip Fever, hit cinemas – something that lends credence to her claims.
She begins the post recalling that she received a phone call from the producer whilst she was working on a film, in which he made her feel “uncomfortable” as he attempted to dissect her sex life; probing for information about her sexuality.
Cara then goes on to recall how a year or two later – around the time casting began for Tulip Fever – that she had a meeting with him and a director.
“A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film,” she explains.
“The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature.”
She then goes onto describe an uncomfortable period where she attempted to extricate herself from the situation by asking his assistant if her car had arrived.
