Add Cara Delevingne to the list of women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment. The model and actress made claims about disturbing experiences with the producer in an Instagram post on Wednesday. The picture accompanying Cara Delevingne's Instagram post about Harvey Weinstein says: “Don’t be ashamed of your story. It will inspire others.”

Delevingne claimed in the post: “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.”

The actress, who has made two movies for the Weinstein Company, Paper Towns and Tulip Fever, continued with more disturbing claims, writing:

Delevingne continued, noting her uneasiness with the situation:

Delevingne further explained: “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.”

The actress and model touches on so many feelings in the emotional post, including guilt and fear, as well as the worry of hurting his family. Delevingne is the latest to share the alleged encounters she’s had with Weinstein. Among the many others who have voiced their stories about their alleged experiences with Weinstein are Ashley Judd, Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino, Lauren Sivan, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie.
