Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow Say Weinstein Harassed Them
The following article appeared on the
Daily Caller on October 10th
Actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth
Paltrow say they too were sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein when they were
starting their careers in Hollywood.
The list of accusers against Harvey
Weinstein has continued to grow, with over a dozen women coming out to the The
New Yorker early Tuesday. Now, Jolie and Paltrow have publicly spoken about
their own experiences with Weinstein to The New York Times, who broke the story last week of
Weinstein’s alleged decades of sexual abuse.
Paltrow says that when she was
22-years-old and was cast in the movie “Emma,” Weinstein “summoned her to his
[hotel] suite” and put his hands on her and suggested they massage each other.
She says she rebuffed his advances and told then-boyfriend Brad Pitt about the
incident. After Pitt confronted Weinstein, the Hollywood producer allegedly
threatened Paltrow and told her not to share her story with anyone else.
Brad Pitt confirmed the account to
the New York Times through a representative.
“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was
petrified,” Paltrow said. “I thought he was going to fire me.”
She added, “he screamed at me for a
long time. It was brutal.”
Jolie told a similar story, saying
Weinstein came onto her in his hotel room in the late 1990s when “Playing by
Heart” was released.
“I had a bad experience with Harvey
Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and
warn others when they did,” Ms. Jolie told the NYT in an email. “This behavior
towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”
Several other women also shared their
stories with the NYT, including Toni-Ann Roberts, who says Weinstein tried to
coerce her to bare her breasts in order to get a film role.
Ed. Weinstein was forced to harass them for attention? But gee, he's such a good looking guy!
