Los Angeles: Actor-model Cara Delevingne, Bond star Lea Seydoux and Heather Graham are the latest celebrities to open up about their encounter with Harvey Weinstein. In a post on her Instagram, Delevingne said at the beginning of her career she received a strange call from Weinstein. The movie mogul asked her if she had slept with any of the women she had been seen with in public.
“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,” Delevingne wrote.
The actor said she met the producer with a director for a film a year later and when the director left the room Weinstein started bragging about all the big stars he had slept with and how he had made their careers.

She said the producer then invited her to his room which she initially declined but his assistant advised her otherwise. “Paper Towns” star said she felt “very powerless and scared” and she initially felt relieved to find another woman in his room but Weinstein “asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction.”Delevingne, 25, said she started to sing thinking it would be more professional, like an audition. “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,” she said. Seydoux had a similar story to tell. “We met in the lobby of his hotel. His assistant, a young woman, was there. All throughout the evening, he flirted and stared at me as if I was a piece of meat,” she explained.
