Cara Delevinge reveals that Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her
Actress Cara Delevinge has joined Asia Argento, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and many more in revealing the full extent of producer Harvey Weinstein's depravity. Hollywood is a cesspool for sexual abuse, and now Ben Affleck is being accused of groping his One Tree Hill costar Hilarie Burton. Affleck apologized on Twitter, but the cat is out of the bag.
Hollywood is in bed with some terrible people. Who will be the next to be unmasked as a sexual predator? Worse, it has been an "open secret" since the 1990s. Think of your favorite movie star, male or female. Odds are, they knew at least a little bit about Harvey Weinstein's true nature. It's disgusting. The entire industry, like politics, is corrupted with sexual assault.
Cara Delevinge, who starred in Suicide Squad, has come forward with her own harrowing Weinstein story. And since she posted the entire story on Instagram, here is the full content of her post below:
"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."
She followed it up with this post.
"I want 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 am relieved to be able to share this....i actually feel better and I'm proud of the women who are brave enough to speak....this isn't easy but there are strength in our numbers. As I said, this is only the beginning. In every industry and especially in Hollywood, men abuse their power using fear and get away with it. This must stop. The more we talk about it, the less power we give them. I urge you all to talk and to the people who defend these men, you are part of the problem"
What more can be said? We hope that all this can help to stop future assaults and help more people come forward.
