Until 2017, the film producer Harvey Weinstein had been intimidated, harassed and abused many women in Hollywood.
One of their victims was also Kate Beckinsale, who now held the judgment of 23 years in prison for Weinstein.
Through its account of Instagram, Beckinsale told how she was intimidated by the ex-mogul in 2001.
That year the film premiered Serendipitythat she protagonizaba with John Cusack.
The premier of this film took place in October, within weeks of the terrorist attack of 9/11. For this reason, many of the actors did not want to participate or make the event to be big and glamorous.
For the red carpet of the film, Kate Beckinsale decided to wear a costume completely white, very formal and appropriate for the times that ran.
However, he told the actress, Harvey Weinstein didn’t like at all her outfit. Why? Because you did not use a dress that show off her body.
The then-producer called the other day to his house with the excuse that their small daughters play together.
Everything changed when Weinstein took the actress to a separate room and began to seek the way in which they had dressed.
“If I organized a red carpet, you are putting a dress stuck down and show your butt and your breasts. Don’t introduce yourself like a fucking lesbian, fucking slut,” he said in a aggressive tone.
She, scared and crying and tried to explain to Weinstein that New York was not ready for a premier with large dresses.
He replied: “I don’t care, it’s my premier, and if I want your vagina on the red carpet, is what I get”.
Beckinsale says, still crying for the assault, managed to take her daughter and leave the house of Weinstein.
For this reason, the protagonist of Serendipity he felt “relieved” that Harvey Weinstein was sentenced to spend 20 years in jail.
“It is a great relief for me and for women who are sexually assaulted or raped and I really hope that this will prevent these and other behaviors in this and other industries”, published in his account of Instagram.
With this testimony, Kate Beckinsale adds to the list of women that Harvey Weinstein attacked for years.
