Paris Hilton Claims Harvey Weinstein Pursued Her At Cannes When She Was 19

Paris Hilton Claims Harvey Weinstein Pursued Her At Cannes When She Was 19

Paris Hilton recently recounted how Harvey Weinstein approached her in a Cannes Film Festival bathroom when she was 19 years old. Moreover, the alleged incident occurred at the ceremony in 2000, and she told Glamour UK that the fallen-from-grace movie executive "hammered" on her bathroom stall. Furthermore, Weinstein was a prominent figure in the film industry until his sexual misconduct caught up with him following accusations in 2017. During her interview, she detailed how she was having dinner with a friend at Cannes, and first met Harvey when he still maintained his industry recognition and power.

"I was at lunch with my girl friend and he came up to the table and was like, 'Oh, you want to be an actress?'" she recalled. "And I said, 'Yeah, I really want to be in a movie.' 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." Then, Hilton maintained, she attended a gala that happened to have Weinstein as its host. In addition, she claimed that the 70-year-old, then 48, followed her into the women's bathroom and screamed, "You wanna be a star?"

"I went into the bathroom and then he followed me," the 42-year-old stated. "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?' 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." Also, Hilton recently revealed her harrowing experience with sexual assault at age 15. Moreover, she said that she decided not to share her story given the executive's iron grip on the industry.

Meanwhile, Weinstein recently received an additional sentence of 16 years for a rape conviction in Los Angeles. Furthermore, authorities convicted him with rape in 202 in New York and sentenced him to 23 years. The most recent sentence means he will likely pass away behind bars, and he spent years denying any wrongdoing.
