Kate Beckinsale is the latest to add her voice to a chorus of women who have come forward with stories of Harvey Weinstein involving sexual harassment or assault.

Beckinsale wrote on Instagram that she was 17 years old when she was called to meet with Weinstein.

“I assumed it would be in a conference room which was very common. When I arrived, reception told me to go to his room,” she wrote. “He opened the door in his bathrobe.”

The actress recalled that it “did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him.”

She wrote that she declined alcohol and mentioned being at school earlier in the morning. “A few years later he asked me if he had tried anything with me in that first meeting. I realized he couldn’t remember if he had assaulted me or not,” she wrote.
