Kate Beckinsale Reveals Harvey Weinstein Screamed Obscenities at Her With Young Daughter Nearby

Dirt on Harvey Weinstein continues to emerge, this time from Kate Beckinsale who shared how the disgraced movie mogul once screamed a slew of obscenities at her while her daughter, less than two years old at the time, was in the other room.

The actress took to Instagram to share her story about Weinstein, who was sentenced to 23 years in prison for sexually assaulting production assistant Mimi Haley in 2006 and raping an aspiring actress in a New York City hotel room in 2013.

The ordeal stemmed from the movie premiere of "Serendipity" on Oct. 5, 2001, which cast members were reluctant to attend due to 9/11. The city was "still smoking," and it felt like the "most insensitive, tone deaf, disrespectful idea possible," Beckinsale wrote. "But Harvey insisted."

The following morning, Beckinsale received a call from Weinstein asking if she would like to bring her daughter around for a playdate with his daughter. She agreed and as soon as they arrived, Weinstein called for a nanny to take the children into another room.

"I went to go with them and he said 'No, you wait here,'" Beckinsale continued. "The minute the door closed he started screaming 'you stupid f***ing c***, you c*** you ruined my premiere.' I had no idea what he was talking about and started to shake. He said, 'If I am throwing a red carpet you get in a tight dress, you shake your a** you shake your t**s, you do not go down it looking like a f***ing lesbian you stupid f***ing c***."

Beckinsale said the shock made her burst into tears. She tried to reason with Weinstein by explaining she and her castmates felt it was inappropriate to attend the premier so soon after 9/11 and "much less coming out dressed like it's a bachelor party."

"He said, 'I don't care – it's my f***ing premiere and if I want p**** on the red carpet, that's what I get.'"

Beckinsale recalled how she was "screaming" and "livid" as she grabbed her daughter and hurtled out of the house. It was "one of many experiences" she said that had no recourse.

"But I WAS punished for it, and for other instances where I said no to him for years, insidiously and seeming irreversibly," Beckinsale wrote. "Hearing that he has gone to prison for 23 years is a huge relief to me on behalf of all the women he sexually assaulted or raped, and I hope will be a deterrent to that sort of behavior in this and any other industry.

"Having said that, the crimes that are not crimes, the inhumane bullying and sick covert abuse for which there is STILL no recourse no matter who you tell (and I did tell), these too need to go. I hope and pray that we as an industry can start to actually outlaw all abuses of power and expose them and eliminate them, for all genders, forever. And Rose, brava."
