In yet another report of alleged misconduct by the ousted Weinstin Company exec, Paltrow told the New York Times that Weinstein put his hands on her and suggested they go to his bedroom for massages during an encounter at his hotel when she was just 22.
She refused his advances, she claims, and told Brad Pitt about the incident because they were dating at the time. Paltrow says Weinstein threatened her over the alleged incident. “I thought he was going to fire me,” she told the paper.
After the alleged incident, Paltrow says Pitt confronted Weinstein at a premiere and told him to never touch Paltrow again. A rep for Pitt confirmed the story to the New York Times.
Jolie told the New York Times that in the late 1990s, Weinstein made unwanted advances towards her in a hotel room.
“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,” Jolie told the Times via email. “This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”
In a scathing new report in the New Yorker on Tuesday, three actresses came forward to claim Weinstein raped them and previously unreleased audio from an NYPD sting of Weinstein has him seeming to admit to groping a model.
