Ed Westwick, who played Chuck Bass in Gossip Girl has been accused of raping an actress three years ago.

Kristina Cohen, who has starred in shows like Californication and The Middle, wrote on Facebook that she had visited the British actor’s home with her then producer boyfriend.

Cohen said she wanted to leave when Westwick suggested “we should all f**k” but was convinced by her boyfriend to stay.

She says she went to have a nap in a guest bedroom.

“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 fought him off as hard as I could but he grabbed my face in his hands, shaking me, telling me he wanted to f*** me,” she wrote.

“I was paralysed, terrified. I couldn’t speak, I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me,” she said. “The producer put the blame on me, telling me I was an active participant. Telling me that I can’t say anything because Ed will have people come after me, destroy me, and that I could forget about an acting career. Saying there’s no way I can go around saying Ed ‘raped’ me and that I don’t want to be ‘that girl’.”

“And for the longest time, I believed him. I didn’t want to be “that girl.”

Westwick has denied knowing her.

“I do not know this woman. I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape,” the British actor tweeted.
