En un comunicado divulgado por su publicista, la actriz de 25 años dijo que primero recibió una “incómoda llamada” del productor, en la cual le preguntó sobre su sexualidad.

“Me dijo que si era gay o decidía estar con una mujer especialmente en público nunca tendría un papel de mujer heterosexual o que nunca triunfaría como actriz en Hollywood”, dijo Delevingne, estrella de “Valerian y la ciudad de los mil planetas” y “Escuadrón Suicida”.

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.

Agregó que “uno o dos años después” fue invitada a una reunión en el lobby de un hotel con Weinstein y otro director.

Delevingne dijo que tan pronto estuvo sola con Weinstein, el productor empezó a “alardear” de como “creó las carreras” de actrices con las cuales afirmaba haberse acostado, antes de invitarla a su habitación.

Aunque inicialmente se rehusó, terminó yendo: “en ese momento me sentí muy vulnerable”, recordó.

Delevingne dijo que otra mujer estaba en la habitación y que Weinstein, uno de los hombres más poderosos de Hollywood, les pidió que se besaran. La actriz intentó reducir la tensión preguntando si podía cantar y hacer una audición frente a él.

“Luego de cantar dije otra vez que me tenía que ir. Él me acompañó a la puerta e intentó besarme en los labios. Lo detuve y pude salir de la habitación”, añadió.

Delevingne dijo que aún así obtuvo el papel en la película pero que se “sintió horrible” porque “siempre” pensó que se lo había dado “por lo que había pasado”.

“Titubeé mucho sobre reportarlo (…) No quería herir a su familia. Me sentía culpable como si yo hubiese hecho algo malo”, añadió.

En su página de Instagram, Delevingne escribió que se siente “aliviada” por compartir su historia, y exhortó a otras mujeres a hablar públicamente si fueron abusadas.

“En cada industria y especialmente en Hollywood, los hombres abusan de su poder y usan la intimidación para salirse con la suya”, dijo, señalando que todos quienes defienden a los abusadores son “parte de problema”.

Weinstein fue despedido el domingo de su propia compañía, tres días después de que un explosivo informe del diario The New York Times afirmó que el ganador del Óscar había acosado sexualmente a jóvenes mujeres que aspiraban a una carrera en el cine.
