Ambra Battilana Gutierrez fue a una comisaría de Nueva York con un plan en su mente: Denunciar por acoso sexual a Harvey Weinstein, un productor de Hollywood muy conocido en el mundo del espectáculo estadounidense, quien se codeaba constantemente con todas las estrellas y personajes importantes del jet set internacional, además de ser el co fundador de la cinematográfica Miramax. 

A Gutierrez le dieron una solución: Esconderse un micrófono entre sus ropas y grabar alguna conversación que pruebe su denuncia, de ese modo, podría ir a la Justicia con evidencia suficiente. 

"Me voy a duchar y vos te vas a quedar acá", "No te voy a hacer nada, te lo prometo", dice el productor a la modelo, con el objetivo de que la mujer se quede en su habitación de hotel a toda costa, a pesar de la negativa de ella. "¿Por qué me tocaste los pechos ayer?", le pregunta ella, a lo que Weinstein responde: "No volverá a suceder"
 
Con el audio en sus manos, Gutierrez se presentó ante la Justicia, quien le dio vuelta la cara. "No es suficiente para probar un crímen", le dijeron los fiscales del estado de Nueva York a la modelo.
 
Desde la fiscalía, dijeron hoy a BBC que "si hubiesen podido iniciarle un proceso judicial a Weinstein, lo habrían hecho". Pero reconocieron que "el patrón de maltrato a las mujeres del productor es desagradable". 
 
Es que el co fundador de Miramax, ha recibido múltiples acusaciones de acoso sexual en los últimos días, muchas de ellas, estrellas de primer nivel, como es el caso de Angelina Jolie, Gyneth Paltrow y Cara Delevingne.
Cara Delevingne, una de las víctimas
 
Delevingne, supermodelo y actriz, fue la más reciente en compartir su experiencia con el productor, quien la invitó a subir a la habitación del hotel donde se hospedaba y ella aceptó: "Cuando llegué me sentí aliviada al encontrar a otra mujer en la habitación y sentí inmediatamente que estaba a salvo. Nos pidió que nos besáramos y ella comenzó a hacer ciertos avances en su dirección. Me levanté deprisa". Pero Weinstein no había terminado: trató de besarla y le bloqueó la puerta para que no salga del lugar.
 
 

When I first started to work as an actress, i was working on a film and I received a call from‎ Harvey Weinstein asking if I had slept with any of the women I was seen out with in the media. It was a very odd and uncomfortable call....i answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or decided to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood. A year or two later, I went to a meeting with him in the lobby of a hotel with a director about an upcoming film. The director left the meeting and Harvey asked me to stay and chat with him. As soon as we were alone he began to brag about all the actresses he had slept with and how he had made their careers and spoke about other inappropriate things of a sexual nature. He then invited me to his room. I quickly declined and asked his assistant if my car was outside. She said it wasn't and wouldn't be for a bit and I should go to his room. At that moment I felt very powerless and scared but didn't want to act that way hoping that I was wrong about the situation. When I arrived I was relieved to find another woman in his room and thought immediately I was safe. He asked us to kiss and she began some sort of advances upon his direction. I swiftly got up and asked him if he knew that I could sing. And I began to sing....i thought it would make the situation better....more professional....like an audition....i was so nervous. After singing I said again that I had to leave. He walked me to the door and stood in front of it and tried to kiss me on the lips. I stopped him and managed to get out of the room. I still got the part for the film and always thought that he gave it to me because of what happened. Since then I felt awful that I did the movie. I felt like I didn't deserve the part. I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong. I was also terrified that this sort of thing had happened to so many women I know but no one had said anything because of fear.

Debido a las denuncias, el productor fue despedido de su compañía y se internó para rehabilitarse de su adicción al sexo. Además, su esposa Georgina Chapman, con quien estaba casado desde 2007, lo dejó por el reciente escándalo. Una persona del entorno de Weinstein confesó a la BBC que el accionar del co fundador de Miramax era "un secreto a voces".
