Cara Delevingne Talks About Harvey Weinstein

Cara Delevingne Is the Latest Star to Speak Out Against Harvey Weinstein

In yet another sad and infuriating turn of events, Cara Delevingne is the latest star to have come forward to speak against Harvey Weinstein. On Wednesday, the model-turned-actress opened up about her own terrifying experience with the film producer in two lengthy Instagram posts, explaining how he tried to use her sexuality against her: "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 writes.

A few years after that first incident, Cara was left alone with Weinstein after a meeting, which is when "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," she explains. Encouraged by his assistant to go, she joined him, thinking that she might be wrong about what was happening. However, things took a bad turn when she was met with another woman and asked to kiss her.

Cara's heartbreaking story comes a week after The New York Times published a disturbing report detailing multiple sexual harassment complaints against Harvey Weinstein, and she chose to end it with a very powerful and important message: "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." Read on to see exactly what she had to say.

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.
