“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,” she added.
Delevingne wrote that she got the role in the movie 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,” she said, adding that she felt guilty and as though she had done 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,” she said.
Weinstein, who apologized last week for how he had treated women, has said he never assaulted anyone.
“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances,” his spokesperson said in a statement this week.
In a followup Instagram post, Delevingne said she wanted “women and girls to know that being harassed or abused or raped is NEVER their fault and not talking about it will always cause more damage than speaking the truth.”
“I’m proud of the women who are brave enough to speak … this isn’t easy but there are strength in our numbers,” she said.
Delevingne did not specifically name the film for which she met Weinstein. She acted in “Tulip Fever,” which was released by the Weinstein Company in 2017 but was filmed in 2014.
Also on Wednesday, French actress
Léa Seydoux wrote an article in The Guardian saying Weinstein forced himself on her after he invited her up to his hotel room.
“It was hard to say no because he’s so powerful. All the girls are scared of him. Soon, his assistant left and it was just the two of us,” she wrote.
“We were talking on the sofa when he suddenly jumped on me and tried to kiss me. I had to defend myself. He’s big and fat, so I had to be forceful to resist him. I left his room, thoroughly disgusted,” she wrote.
Delevingne and Seydoux’s allegations came a day after
actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie came forward with several other women in two new reports that accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and misconduct. Three women in a New Yorker magazine article accused Weinstein of rape. http://www.revengenews.com/
