The New York Times publicerade i förra veckan uppgifter från ett antal kvinnor som anklagade Harvey Weinstein för att sexuellt ha trakasserat dem. Bakom anklagelserna stod bland annat Rose McGowan och Ashley Judd, och i efterdyningarna har även Gwyneth Paltrow. Rosanna Arquette och Angelina Jolie trätt fram.
Enligt uppgifterna ska Harvey Weinstein ha pressat flera av dem till att titta på honom naken och massera honom. I utbyte skulle de få en skjuts i karriären.
Cara Delevingne öppnar sig på Instagram
Nu kommer nya anklagelser rikade mot Harvey Weinstein från skådespelaren och modellen Cara Delevingne. I ett inlägg på Instagram skriver hon, bland annat, att han under ett möte försökt få henne kyssa en annan kvinna. Därefter ska filmproducenten själv ha gjort närmanden.
"När jag började med skådespeleri, jobbade jag på en film och fick ett samtal från Harvey Weinstein. Han frågade om jag hade legat med någon av de kvinnor jag synts till med i media. Det var ett udda och obekvämt samtal", skriver hon bland annat och fortsätter:
"Jag svarade inte på någon av hans frågor och skyndade bort från telefonen. Men innan jag la på, sa han att om jag var gay eller bestämde mig för att vara med en kvinna, speciellt publikt, skulle jag aldrig få en roll som heterosexuell kvinna eller slå igenom som skådespelare i Hollywood".
Frun har lämnat honom
Sedan anklagelserna publicerats, har Apple dragit sig ur ett projekt producerat av Harvey Weinsteins företag TWC. Hans fru ska även ha lämnat honom. Även USA:s förra president Barack Obama ska ha känt sig "äcklad" efter avslöjandena.
When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call....i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. 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. 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. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.
