Une faute?

Plus d’une semaine après les révélations du «New York Times», accusant le producteur Harvey Wein­stein de harcèlement sexuel et de viol, l’affaire arrivera peut-être devant la justice. La police de New York a ouvert, jeudi, une enquête sur l’agression sexuelle présumée de Lucy Evans. L’actrice assure que le producteur l’aurait forcée à lui faire une fellation en 2004, selon «The New Yorker». Niant les faits, celui qui était surnommé «The Pig» (le porc) viendrait d’engager un avocat de renom.

En seulement quelques jours, 28 actrices ont révélé avoir été victimes d’abus sexuels de la part du magnat de Hollywood. A commencer par l’Américaine Ashley Judd, qui s’est plainte d’avoir fait l’objet de plusieurs avances de l’homme, en 1997. De nombreuses personnalités lui ont emboîté le pas, telles que Rose McGowan, qui a publié, avant que son compte ne soit temporairement bloqué, de nombreux tweets pour inciter les victimes à s’annoncer. Mais aussi Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Rosanna Arquette et Emma de Caunes. Mercredi, l’actrice française Léa Seydoux et Cara Delevingne (photo) se sont ajoutées à cette longue liste. «II m’a dit qu’il me trouvait très attirante et qu’il voulait avoir des relations avec moi», a déclaré le mannequin anglais sur son compte Instagram.

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. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. 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. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. 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.
