Cara Delevingne becomes latest star to allege sexual harassment at the hands of Harvey Weinstein 

11 Oct

Graham said: “I walked out of the meeting feeling uneasy. There was no explicit mention that to star in one of those films I had to sleep with him, but the subtext was there.”

She added: “I was never hired for one of his films.”

Graham now says she feels guilty for not speaking out over his behaviour at the time, saying she fears that by keeping quiet she made it easier for him to harass other women.

She told Vanity Fair magazine: “It wasn’t until Ashley Judd heroically shared her story a few days ago that I felt ashamed. If I had spoken up a decade ago, would I have saved countless women from the same experience I had or worse?”

Graham, who said that she feared she would not be believed if she reported Weinstein’s behaviour at the time and had not wanted to be defined as ‘a difficult woman’, added:

“I’m glad the victims are being heard, that powerful voices in the industry are speaking up to say this kind of behavior isn’t acceptable anymore, and that a predator is finally facing the consequences — it means the world is starting to change for the better.

“While I still do feel guilty for not speaking up all those years ago, I’m glad for this moment of reckoning.”
