She said she woke up in his guest bedroom with Westwick on top of her.

Actor Ed Westwick, who played fan favorite Chuck Bass on the hit show Gossip Girl, is the latest celebrity to be accused of rape. 

Actress Kristina Cohen wrote a lengthy Facebook post on Monday night claiming Westwick raped her in his home three years ago. The 27-year-old Ladies Like Us star said she woke up from taking a nap to the 30-year-old British actor on top of her. 

While Cohen was briefly dating a producer who was friends with Westwick, they went to his to his home where she met him for the first time. She said she wanted to leave when Westwick suggested: "We should all f--k." Her boyfriend didn't want to make him feel awkward by leaving so they stayed for dinner.

When Cohen said she was tired and wanted to leave, Westwick allegedly said she should take a nap in the guest bedroom. Her boyfriend assured her they would only stay for another 20 minutes. 

So she went to the guest bedroom and fell asleep. When she woke up, she says Westwick was on top of her.

"I was woken up abruptly by Ed on top of me, his fingers entering my body," Cohen wrote. "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--k me. I was paralyzed, terrified. I couldn't speak. I could no longer move. He held me down and raped me."

Cohen went on to say that her producer boyfriend blamed her for the rape and said she 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," she wrote. "Saying there's no way I can go around saying Ed 'raped' me and that I don't want to be 'that girl.'"

She said it was particularly hard for her to come forward about the rape at that time because her mother was dying of cancer.

"I didn't have the support system or time to process and deal with the aftermath of rape," she said. "I buried my pain and guilt to make space for the onslaught that came after my mom's death, just three month later."

Westwick publicly denied the allegations on social media on Tuesday. 

"I do not know this woman," he said. "I have never forced myself in any manner, on any woman. I certainly have never committed rape." 

Cohen said she was inspired to come out about the assault because of the #MeToo movement after the Harvey Weinstein scandal.

"Even now, I grapple with feelings of guilt," she said. "Unfounded worry that in some way I was to blame. I don't know where these feelings come from. I've grown considerably in the three years since my assault, so to revisit is painful."
