OR­DEAL Ac­tress Cara and, in­set, We­in­stein CARA Delev­ingne claims Har­vey We­in­stein tried to get her to join a three­some romp in a ho­tel. The ac­tress told how she fled as he blocked her way in a bid to kiss her. Cara, 25, said: “I felt very pow­er­less and scared. I man­aged to get out.”

CARA Delev­ingne claimed Har­vey We­in­stein boasted about the num­ber of women he had bed­ded be­fore al­legedly try­ing to pounce on her. The ac­tress said she had been at a meet­ing in a ho­tel lobby with the dis­graced Hol­ly­wood pro­ducer about a film when he lured her to his room, where he wanted her and an­other wo­man to take part in a three­some. Cara also al­leges We­in­stein told her she would never make it as a star be­cause she had re­vealed she was bi­sex­ual. She is the lat­est big name to ac­cuse him of be­ing a sex pest af­ter Gwyneth Pal­trow and An­gelina Jolie said he tried it on with them when­they­were both young ac­tresses. Speak­ing about the three­some claims, be­lieved to have hap­pened in 2014, 25-year-old Cara said: “I went to a meet­ing with him in the lobby of a ho­tel with a di­rec­tor about an up­com­ing film. The di­rec­tor left 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.” Cara said We­in­stein then in­vited her to his room out of the blue. She added: “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 I did not 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.” Cara later starred in We­in­stein’s 2017 movie Tulip Fever. It is un­clear if that is the movie she had the meet­ing about. But she added: “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. “I want women and girls to know that be­ing ha­rassed or abused or raped is NEVER their fault and not talk­ing about it will al­ways cause more dam­age than speak­ing the truth. I am re­lieved to be able to share this. “In ev­ery in­dus­try and es­pe­cially in Hol­ly­wood, men abuse their power us­ing fear and get away with it. This must stop.” Cara told of her deal­ings with We­in­stein, 65, in a post on her In­sta­gram page. She also told how she ear­lier re­ceived a call from We­in­stein af­ter she
