Kate Beckinsale: Weinstein Sexually Harassed Me At 17

Since The New York Times finally broke the industry and media-built dam on Thursday, a flood of sexual harassment accusations against mega-producer Harvey Weinstein have continued to pour in, including from A-list celebrities, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Heather Graham. Another alleged victim came forward on Thursday, Kate Beckinsale, 44, who said in an Instagram post that Weinstein sexually harassed her when she was only 17 years old.

“I was called to meet Harvey Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel when I was 17,” Beckinsale begins. “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,” she continues. “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.”

Beckinsale then notes that despite her age, he offered her alcohol, which she declined citing “school” in the morning. “After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning, I left, uneasy but unscathed,” she writes.

Weinstein, she adds, did not seem to even remember later if he had made sexual advances at her. “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,” she says.
