Paris Hilton has claimed that she was harassed by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. The celebrity met Weinstein at an event in the Cannes Film Festival, in 2000.
More than two decades later, Hilton has alleged that the Hollywood producer invited her to his room after she told him that she wanted to be an actress.
“I was at lunch with my girlfriend and he came up to the table and was like, ‘Oh, you want to be an actress?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I really want to be in a movie’,” Hilton told Glamour.
“I was a teenager, so I was impressed by him. I was like, ‘Oh my god, Harvey Weinstein is so cool!’ and he said, ‘Well, we should have a meeting. You can come up to my room and read scripts’ and I just didn’t want to go, so I never went.”
The producer was anything but pleased with her answer and insisted, albeit in a much less subtle way, as she followed her into the bathroom during the gala yelling “ya wanna be a star?”.
“I went into the bathroom and then he followed me,” Hilton added.
“He tried to open the door, he was hammering on the door, banging on it. And I wouldn’t open it, because I was like, ‘I’m in a stall, why do you want to come in here?’
“And I just wouldn’t open it. And security came and literally carried him away and he was like (shouting), ‘This is my party’. going nuts. It scared me and freaked me out.”
