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.

Delevingne’s comments come after Alyssa Milano slammed Donald Trump when it came down to his defence of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The 45-year-old actress hit out at the U.S. president for a recent tweet in which he threw suspicion on the claims of sexual assault made by Professor Christine Blasey Ford against Kavanaugh.

In the tweet, Trump surmised that if Ford’s claims were true, charges would have been filed with local authorities at the time.

Milano, who is a big-time activist and member of the #MeToo movement, took exception to the commander-in-chief’s tweet:


And Milano is not the only star to speak out. Cher, Ashley Judd, Whitney Cummins and many more are reacting with the hashtag “#WhyIDidntReport”.

The former “Charmed” star previously wrote an open letter to Trump at, attacking the POTUS for his approach to American health care.

“For the past year and a half, you and the Republican Party have tried to get your way and raised health care costs for millions of Americans by using fear, intimidation, and false statements,” she wrote.

“But no more. The American people are stronger than you, and we won’t let you get away with threatening our families, our neighbours, and our communities any longer.”

Milano has been urging American citizens to vote Republicans out of office in November.
