Wow, is there anyone in Hollywood (aside from Meryl Streep and similarly aged women) that Harvey Weinstein didn’t try to bang over the years? It’s extremely ironic that a man in his situation has a four daughters aged 7, 14, 19 and 22-year-old Lily Weinstein with whom he got into a heated argument this morning—to the point that the police got involved.

Earlier this morning, the powers of social proof finally overcame Mt. Kate Beckinsale and the 44-year-old English actress took to Instagram with her own story of how Harvey Winstein tried to get into her pants when she was 17. You can read Kate’s comments below.

BOOK IDEA: Want to become an instant NY Times bestselling author? Go around Hollywood Hollywood and compile an anthology of similar harassment stories because obviously there’s a huge audience who are thirsty for more! Just think about how many other actors and producers will be outed in the process!

I was called to meet Harvey Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel when I was 17. I assumed it would be in a conference room which was very common.When I arrived ,reception told me to go to his room . He opened the door in his bathrobe . I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older ,unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him .After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left ,uneasy but unscathed.A few years later he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting .I realized he couldn't remember if he had assaulted me or not .I had what I thought were boundaries – I said no to him professionally many times over the years-some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a cunt and making threats, some of which made him laughingly tell people oh "Kate lives to say no to me ." It speaks to the status quo in this business that I was aware that standing up for myself and saying no to things,while it did allow me to feel uncompromised in myself,undoubtedly harmed my career and was never something I felt supported by anyone other than my family.I would like to applaud the women who have come forward , and to pledge that we can from this create a new paradigm where producers,managers,executives and assistants and everyone who has in the past shrugged and said " well, that's just Harvey /Mr X/insert name here " will realize that we in numbers can affect real change.For every moment like this there have been thousands where a vulnerable person has confided outrageous unprofessional behavior and found they have no recourse, due to an atmosphere of fear that it seems almost everyone has been living in .I had a male friend who, based on my experience,warned a young actress who said she was going to dinner with Harvey to be careful. He received a phone call the next day saying he would never work in another Miramax film ;the girl was already sleeping with Harvey and had told him that my friend had warned her off.Let's stop allowing our young women to be sexual cannon fodder,and let's remember that Harvey is an emblem of a system that is sick,and that we have work to do.

  • Harvey Weinstein ravaged my badger!

    And she didn’t even get the part

  • IamLegend

    She’s ten years older than me and I’d still love to put some moves on her! He says as if I’d ever have a chance………sob, sniff……

  • Spanglylovesheels

    Well, I’m not sure that I feel sorry for her for stupidly going into his room at 17. Just because you call yourself naive years later doesn’t excuse the stupidity. But again I am not defending ol Harv either. He is the stereotype of the sleazy Hollywood agent, manager, producer, director, you name it. I agree that actors need to band together as workers and cleanup their scummy industry. I will always be for workers rights over managements wishes!

    • IamLegend

      Young girls have always seemed to be a very high profile target on the slime covered sleaze since I can remember. My sympathy has always been on the girls side but why wait from age 17 to 44 before saying anything?

        It’s an extremely tough spot to be in. They are sacrificing themselves to save others down the line, with very likely nothing in return. Then it becomes a he said/she said thing, with little to no proof. No one wants to go first.

    • Gabbo

      So drain the swamp?

      • Spanglylovesheels

        Yes I think you could say that!

  • Drew Mcfriend

    We’re going to hear all of the victims or perceived victims stories, but will any high profile actresses who accepted Weinstein’s advances come forward and tell their stories? The ones that used his power and influence to become a Hollywood star.

    • Spanglylovesheels

      I think we already know the answer to that Drew.

      • Drew Mcfriend

        Hopefully, Harvey has the “if I’m going down, everybody is going down” attitude and we get all the dirt.

  • Amari

    Wow, you try to warm someone and they sell you out, wow.

  • Gabbo

    There’s a reason why Becks has only ever been in one Miramax movie, Serendipity for those wondering. It’s very incestuous at the top. Harvey has a shit ton of friends. Outside of a small role in Aviator, she has 0 prestige films because Harvey effectively killed that career.

    For the record, HW was part of the power structure at Disney for a number of years. I feel vindicated in all the times I posted that those Disney guys screwed up almost every girl that was featured in their productions.
