Minka Kelly Remembers 'Gross' Meeting With Harvey Weinstein

The Friday Night Lights star is coming forward with her own story of Harvey Weinstein's inappropriate behavior.

In a post on Instagram, Minka Kelly told her over 380,000 followers that the disgraced Miramax co-founder once tried to put the moves on her. "I met Harvey at an industry party. The following day, my agent said he wanted to see me for a general meeting. The location was set for his hotel room," she stated. "I wasn't comfortable with going to his room & said so."

The next day, Kelly said, she met with Weinstein and an assistant at a hotel restaurant. "He bulls**t me for 5 minutes re: movies he could put me in, then asked the assistant to excuse us," Kelly recalled. "As she walked away, he said, 'I know you were feeling what I was feeling when we met the other night' and then regaled me with offers of a lavish life filled with trips around the world on private planes etc. IF I would be his girlfriend."

"Or, 'We could just keep this professional,'" Kelly recalled him saying. "All I knew was not to offend this very powerful man and to get out of the situation as quickly as possible. I told him while flattered, I'd like to keep things professional. He said 'Fine. I trust you won't tell anyone about this.' I said 'Of course not. Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with me,' – the only way I could think to shut it down gracefully and excuse myself."

Afterwards, Kelly said that she told her agent about the incident and the two "marveled at his audacity."

"Neither of us were that surprised as this wasn't far off from the day-to-day bulls**t of being an actress," Kelly explained. But, apparently, this event's been weighing on Kelly's mind, especially in light of all of the allegations that have come out about Weinstein's reported history of sexual misconduct.

Kelly apologized for her silence, stating, "I'm sorry for obliging his orders to be complicit in protecting his behavior, which he obviously knew was wrong or he wouldn't have asked me not to tell anyone in the first place. For making him feel ok about the gross things he was saying and that I felt my only route was to say I was flattered. For not insisting that my reps never allow anyone to take a meeting in a hotel room (with him or anyone else), because I honestly don't know what might have happened if I'd just showed up as originally scheduled."

She continued, "I am appalled for all the women being told these occurrences are in any way their fault. No more Harvey Weinstein in Hollywood does not solve the problem but maybe the more voices sharing their stories and adding support to the countless women and men who have suffered through abuse of power, the less it will be tolerated."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, a number of celebrities have spoken out against Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape. Since news broke about his alleged behavior, the Hollywood producer has been fired from his position at The Weinstein Company, and his wife of 10 years, Georgina Chapman, has left him. He will reportedly be entering a rehab facility to deal with his alleged sex addiction, though not everyone is convinced that he has such an addiction.

"I don't think you can describe him as a sex addict — he's a predator," actress Emma Thompson told BBC's Newsnight. "There's a difference."

The NYPD has opened an investigation into Weinstein's reported history of sexual misconduct.
