Like many women, including Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Asia Argento, Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette, have spoken about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault and harassment, the gorgeous actress Minka Kelly also opened up about the sexual misconduct on herself by the 65-year old film producer.
The 37-year-old Friday Night Lights star Minka took her Instagram to share the emotional story about her unsettling experience with Harvey.

After she met Harvey at an industry party, Minka claims he set up a “general meeting” via her agent in his hotel room in the following day. And when she refused to sit down with him in private, the duo changed the location and gathered in the restaurant of the hotel with his female assistant.

In the lengthy post on Instagram, she wrote;
He bullshit me for 5 minutes re: movies he could put me in, then asked the assistant to excuse us,” Kelly recalled in a lengthy post on Instagram. “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.
Choosing the latter option, Minka rebuffed Harvey's advances and quickly freed herself from the restaurant.
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.
