Cara Delevigne has opened up in a new interview about how identifying as queer has affected her Hollywood career through the years.
“In the beginning, I don’t think it helped,” Delevingne, 27, said in a new interview with Net-a-Porter. “One of the first things Harvey Weinstein ever said to me was, ‘You will never make it in this industry as a gay woman – get a beard.’ ”
Recall that the model-actress accused the disgraced producer in 2017 of sexual assault, saying the movie producer attempted to kiss her in a hotel room. Now she has spoken more about their working relationship.
“When I’d just started to audition for films, he was naming people (women) I’m friends with – famous people – and asking, ‘Have you slept with this person?’ I just thought: This is insane,” Delevingne added.
Speaking about her encounter with Weinstein in 2017, she took to Instagram to share: “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.”
Other actresses who have accused the producer of assault include Lupita Nyong’o, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mira Sorvino, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, and many, many more.
