Model and actress Cara Delevingne says Harvey Weinstein made some moves on her.
She says the disgraced Hollywood producer tried to kiss her and engage in other sexually inappropriate behavior. Cara wrote in a statement on social media that when she first began to work as an actress, she 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," she said.
Delevingne wrote on her Instagram account that she "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." (She has openly discussed her bisexuality.)
Cara said that a year or two later, she went to a meeting with Weinstein and a director in a hotel lobby to discuss a coming film. After the director left, Weinstein asked her to stay and made comments about his sex life and "about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature."
Weinstein then invited her to his hotel room. Delevingne said she declined and asked his assistant if her car was outside. The assistant said that it was not and that she should join Weinstein in his room.Delevingne said that when she arrived in his room, there was another woman there and Weinstein asked them to kiss. Not knowing what to do, Delevingne said, she asked him whether he knew she 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."
Delevingne wrote that she got the role in the movie and "always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened."
