Daily Star - - News - by KATE NEL­SON

BRI­TISH Hol­ly­wood star Kate Beck­in­sale last night claimed she fought off Har­vey We­in­stein while she was still a school­girl.

The To­tal Re­call ac­tress, pic­tured with him in 2004, said she met the pro­ducer in a ho­tel when only 17. Kate, 44, wrote on In­sta­gram: “I as­sumed it would be in a con­fer­ence room which was very com­mon. When I ar­rived, re­cep­tion told me to go to his room.” She claimed he opened the door “in his bathrobe”.

She added: “I was in­cred­i­bly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattrac­tive man would ex­pect me to have any in­ter­est in him.” She said: “Af­ter de­clin­ing al­co­hol and an­nounc­ing that I had school in the morn­ing I left, un­easy but un­scathed.”

She says turn­ing him down “un­doubt­edly harmed my ca­reer”.

The star also claimed We­in­stein called her a “c***” and made threats over the years.
