‘I was terrified’ – Cara Delevingne claims that Harvey Weinstein tried to force himself on her

Cara Delevingne has become the latest star to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing her as she claimed he tried to force himself on her.
The model-turned-actress said after meeting the Hollywood producer at a restaurant, he asked her to come up to his hotel room where another woman was waiting.

Weinstein then apparently told the two women to kiss, which Cara said she escaped from by suddenly breaking out into song.

She made the explosive claims on Instagram as she told how Wenstein tried to kiss her “on the lips”.

The 25-year-old said she still got the part in the film but has felt “guilty and terrified” about it ever since.

Cara has made two films for the Weinstein company – including her breakout role in Paper Towns in 2015 and recently released Tulip Fever.

Writing on Instagram today, she said: “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.”

She explained how she met up with him a year later to discuss a film at the hotel with him and a director, who left – leaving Cara, who came out as bisexual in 2015, and Weinstein alone.

The model wrote: “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.”

Cara is the latest in a long line of Hollywood A-listers who have accused Weinstein of sexually assaulting them.

In the past 24 hours multiple women – including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Patrow – have made accusations against the Hollywood producer.

It comes just hours after Hollywood star Ewan McGregor slammed Weinstein, 64, saying he heard “rumours” about the movie mogul’s behaviour over many years.

McGregor, the star of the Trainspotting films, said Weinsten was getting his “just deserts” and added: “Bye bully.”
