Ed Westwick Accused of Rape by Actress Kristina Cohen: 'He Held Me Down'

Kristina Cohen has accused Ed Westwick of rape amid ongoing revelations of sexual assault in the entertainment industry.

The 27-year-old Ladies Like Us actress posted a Facebook status on Monday (November 6) alleging that the 30-year-old Gossip Girl star forced her to engage in sex three years ago at his house.

“I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body. I told him to stop, but he was strong…I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me,” she wrote.

“I hope my coming forward will help others to know that they are not alone, that they are not to blame, and it is not their fault.”

A representative for Ed has not yet immediately responded for comment.

    she better be able to prove this or he can sue her for slander/defamation.

  • JemRose01

    That’s the first thing that came to your mind?

  • Vanity

    Hollywood is filled with pigs.. they hide behind their fame & we are the one’s that give it to them. makes you feel dirty for even supporting this losers show.

  • mafragias

    you do know that there are shades of gray in life not everything is black & white. He maybe will deny it by saying he doesn’t remember it.
    btw, if Ed is a rapist, I mean there would be more people speaking out. that behavior doesn’t just happen once. (sic)

  • mafragias

    probably, she can’t prove it.. The only “proof” would be, if other women come forward.

  • Vanity

    shades of gray? sounds familiar.

  • mafragias

    Yeah, you said it in a Kevin Spacey post. I saw your comment here and i thought it is interesting that you choose to burn on the stake whoever you don’t like and you think it’s a gray area with people you like…

  • I’m special

    1.why didnt she name the producer?
    2.why go to sleep to someone’s you dont trust house?
    3.if this really happened is terrible but this girl is plain stupid

  • Vanity

    Being accused of sexual misconduct over rape is a huge difference. Its not a favoritism game on my part I dont like any of these actors.
    If you can’t grasp that then we have nothing further to discuss.

  • GrkGoddess

    they’re all power drunk. the fame they get makes them think they can get away with this.

  • Amber

    Damn. I always liked Ed, but time tells the truth of anyone.

  • mafragias

    You should know that having sex with minors is rape. Just because only one guy accused Spacey of something, doesn’t mean he’s the only one. I don’t think Netflix fired him just for one accusation, probably there was more to it that we know and they were trying to save their asses.
    So, in conclusion just because these accusations are in two different levels of seriousness, doesn’t mean we should pardon the ones who are accused with the lower level….

  • AeeJay

    LOL stalker much?

  • mafragias

    I argued with Vanity in a previous post, so what’s your problem exactly?

  • gradybridges

    and this is why women don’t come forward

  • meme

    You can’t just accuse people of doing something vile to you. That’s not the way it works. If it worked that way people would be accusing everybody of something with no repercussions. I work with lawyers so I do know how it works.

  • meme

    If she came forward when it happened and they did a rape kit, there would be proof. You can’t prosecute someone for something where there is no proof

  • tia maria

    Why has she only named Ed Westwick and not the producer?

  • meme

    I agree with you. Kevin is/was my favorite actor and Netflix didn’t fire him, his agency and publicist didn’t drop him over one incident. There is more. He as much said so. Breaks my heart because he is so freaking talented.

  • greatergood41v

    he doesn’t seem to care look what he just posted

  • Max

    this is sooo ridiculous. who’s next? who was raped more violently? 5 min of spotlight. destroy other actor’s careers for the fun of it, or because you just don’t like them.

  • Vanity

    yea duh, only Spacey never sexually raped a minor. and fyi, my shades of gray comment was not to you & not about being molested or rape. it was about how the person who responded to my comment.

  • GrkGoddess

    what are you talking about no one is pardoning their behavior. but in the eyes of the LAW rape & groping someone is very different.

  • Vanity

    I never argued with you at all. wtf?

  • mafragias

    How the fuck do you know? In your previous post you said you need more than one persons word. Is it in this post anything different from that sense that I don’t know?

  • mafragias

    really ?? Deleting comments and it never happened right ?

  • mafragias

    I hate repeating myself but nobody seems to pay attention to what i am saying. JUST BECAUSE ONLY ONE PERSON CAME FORWARD WITH A MINOR THING DOESN’T MEAN THERE IS ONLY ONE THING. Netflix didn’t just fire Spacey for one sexual misconduct accusation.

    And I am only talking for “pardoning” just because Vanity seemed to be in favor of Spacey and needed more proof than one person’s word. But now Vanity is ok with one Facebook post.

  • Georgia Brisco

    She’s not trying to prosecute anyone, dickhead. She’s trying to tell her truth.

  • GrkGoddess

    yeah Vanity’s comment isn’t pardoning anyone’s behavior. but why do you care so much about one persons comment anyway? its abit nutts.

  • meme

    You can’t just accuse people. He says he doesn’t know her. So why believe her over him? How come the minute someone accuses someone you believe it? It’s innocent until proven guilty or the person admits to it. It’s not GUILTY because someone said so.

  • Vanity

    no one knows facts. either do you. and those men who came forward never said they were raped. I said one persons word isn’t going to sway me regarding Spacey. Regarding Westwick, I never said I believed her word, only that Hollywood is filled with disgusted people.. read b4 you started throwing stones at people.

  • mafragias

    Ok, what? you don’t find suspicious that Vanity is against some pigs(sic) and wants more proof(sic) for others?

    Anyways this discussion isn’t going anywhere, so i am going to end it here.

  • Vanity

    I never deleted comments. But what I need to do is use that block button cus you need to take your meds.

  • mafragias

    ok still have the mail with the comment calling me stupid just because I don’t agree with you.

  • GrkGoddess

    suspicious? In both of the comments made there is more generalizing than actual fingers pointing or sides. unlike you that seems to be hell bent on exposing someone that hasnt said anything negative.

  • mafragias

    I read what I read correctly. If your comment is not in regard of Westwick, why did u post it here. Maybe you should post your comments at the right post if you don’t want to be misunderstood

  • Vanity

    wow. dude stop lying. I dont even know you.

  • mafragias

    Vanity did address the same situation differently, i noticed that, so I called Vanity on that with my first comment. Not trying to expose anyone. Everyone can see the comments if not deleted.

  • James Porter

    No, he can’t. The burden of proof is on the person being defamed. If they have enough evidence to falsify this woman accusation, then yes she could be sued. But they also need to prove she said what she said with malicious intent.

  • Er5105

    huh? most victims are victimized by people they trust (friends, brothers, fathers), not strangers. I was victimized by someone I was casually dating. There’s really nothing fishy about her account, but your take is reaalllyyyy bad.

  • Er5105

    or because he actually did it?

  • cutitout

    Not according to the anti rape community. Now all allegations are supposed to be taken seriously and the accuser is treated as a victim without any proof a crime ever even occurred.

  • KS_in_TP

    Neflix fired him because after the accusation of the 14 year old (well, now a grown man), half a dozen male employees on the set of HoC accused Spacey of aggressive sexual behavior.

  • Lisa

    Most people are actually raped by someone in their close circle e.g. a “friend”, a relative or a colleague. People who trust the assholes that raped them aren’t stupid. The rapists are simply criminals who think that they can get away with anything and, sadly, they usually do. Don’t blame the victims, blame the rapists.

  • plez

    People on twitter are posting the producer’s name is Kaine Harling.
    Ed Westwick tweeted Kaine in 2015

  • Dmau

    Wow… and even bringing meds into it. Ya, we can just go ahead and ignore Vanity’s comments from now on lol. Thats terrible

  • Dmau

    Those are legitimate questions that will need answering. This story reeks of hidden agendas

  • Vanity

    Or you can join your friend in taking those meds.

  • GrkGoddess

    thats your opinion, opinions dont make things facts. I dont see what you see buddy so just stop already.
