20 Stories Harvey Weinstein Doesn’t Want You to Know

Kate Beckinsale

When Beckinsale was 17, she alleges, she was invited to meet with Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel. Though she assumed the meeting would be in a conference room, she says she was sent to the producer’s room instead. “He opened the door in his bathrobe,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “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. After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed. 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.” Beckinsale then recalls allegedly being propositioned by Weinstein “many times over the years—some of which ended up with him screaming at me calling me a cunt and making threats.”
