Cara Delevingne has revealed her experience of working with a film producer that started with a phone call that already was rather awkward for the sexually fluid actress because from the very first conversation he urged her to open up about her same-sex love experience. She did not respond and ended the conversation. Weinstein, she writes, then said that if she “was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public” that she would never get a role playing a straight character or “make it as an actress in Hollywood.” After that she did not want to contact him again but they accidentally met at one event. In her post, she reveals that he asked her to stay on after the meeting and invited her into his hotel room where he told her that he had slept with many actresses and that is how they built their careers. There was another woman in the room and Weinstein made her and Cara kiss. As Delevigne tried to escape he tried to kiss her himself. “I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened,” she wrote. “Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn’t deserve the part.” She was afraid of speaking out and did not want to hurt his family. Weinstein’s spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister said: “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. Mr Weinstein obviously can’t speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual. Mr Weinstein has begun counselling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path.”
