But one by one, women who encountered him over his decades in the entertainment industry are speaking out about the ways he allegedly sexually harassed or assaulted them. Here is the growing list of women who have publicly accused him in the past week, when reports from credible news outlets began to be published, resulting in his being fired from his company and losing his wife. He has continued to deny most of it.

Cara Delevingne

Model, actress, and newly minted YA author Cara Delevingne added her name to the ever-growing list of Weinstein accusers. Among the details was Weinstein’s insistence that she’d never get roles playing straight characters if she decided to be with women in public, Delevingne shared. She also described what happened when she was summoned to his room, after they met with a director at Weinstein’s hotel. “When I arrived, I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe,” she wrote on Instagram. “He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction.” After trying to distract him by singing, she said she had to leave, then, “He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips.” She added that she was hesitant to speak out because of how it would affect his family.

New York Times published its initial report on Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual harassment on Oct. 5, Ashley Judd was the only big-name Hollywood actress who would go on the record about being an alleged victim of the movie mogul. However, five days later, the newspaper followed up with a second, more damning article in which Gwyneth Paltrow, 45, claimed to be a victim too. She said that at 22, when she was just starting out and Weinstein hired her for the lead in the Jane Austen adaptation Emma, he called her to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting, which led to his placing his hands on her and suggesting they head to the bedroom for massages. “I was a kid … I was petrified,” said Paltrow, who came from a known acting family. She escaped and told her boyfriend at the time, Brad Pitt, who had words with Weinstein.&nbsp;Paltrow said that Weinstein then screamed at her, warning her not to tell anyone else about his come-on, leaving her fearful that she’d be fired from Emma. (She said that she also told a few friends, family members, and her agent.) Paltrow continued to work professionally with Weinstein, who helped her develop her career and win an Oscar for 1998’s Shakespeare in Love, which was produced by his then-company Miramax.” data-reactid=”56″>When the New York Times published its initial report on Weinstein’s alleged history of sexual harassment on Oct. 5, Ashley Judd was the only big-name Hollywood actress who would go on the record about being an alleged victim of the movie mogul.

In 2008, actress and screenwriter Louisette Geiss went to the Sundance Film Festival to pitch a movie and landed a meeting with Weinstein that initially seemed promising — until it took an unfortunately familiar turn. After he excused himself to go to the bathroom, “he returned in a robe with the front open, buck-naked,” Geiss said at a news conference. He told her to continue pitching as he got into his hot tub, and then, “when I finished my pitch, he asked me to watch him masturbate. I told him I was leaving. He quickly got out of the hot tub. As I went to get my purse to leave, he grabbed my forearm and pulled me to his bathroom and pleaded with me to watch him masturbate. My heart was racing and I was very scared.” Geiss is being represented by attorney Gloria Allred.
