On Wednesday, Kate Beckinsale has recalled a shocking encounter with Harvey Weinstein after the ex- movie mogul was sentenced to 23 years in prison.
The 46-year-old British actress penned an emotional Instagram message hours after Weinstein, 67, was sentenced in Manhattan criminal court following his convictions last month for forcibly performing oral sex on production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and third degree rape for the attack on Jessica Mann in 2013.
Kate recalled how Weinstein had forced the cast of her hit 2001 movie Serendipity to go ahead with the New York premiere of the film mere weeks after 9/11, before accusing her of ‘ruining’ the premiere in a shocking rant.
Kate shared two photos from the October 2001 premiere, showing herself and Weinstein on the red carpet.
She told her followers in the lengthy caption: ‘These photos were taken at the premiere of Serendipity on October 5, 2001.
‘We all refused to go because holding a premiere mere weeks after 9/11 with the city still smoking felt like the most insensitive, tone deaf, disrespectful idea possible.’
