HT City - - Front Page -

Hollywood re­mains di­vided on pro­ducer Har­vey We­in­stein, who has been ac­cused of sex­u­ally ha­rass­ing his em­ploy­ees and fe­male ac­tors. A re­cent re­port by New York Times brought the is­sue to the fore, quot­ing ac­tor Ash­ley Judd, among oth­ers. Now, while stars such as An­gelina Jolie and Gwyneth Pal­trow re­veal their trau­matic ex­pe­ri­ences with him, ac­tor Lind­say Lo­han de­fends the pro­ducer.

Lo­han was in Scary Movie 5, dis­trib­uted by We­in­stein’s com­pany. She says, “I feel very bad for Har­vey We­in­stein. I don’t think it’s right what’s go­ing on. He never harmed me.”

How­ever, Pal­trow, who was cast in Emma, was “pet­ri­fied” when We­in­stein placed his hands on her — she was 22 then — and sug­gested a mas­sage. Jolie also said in a state­ment, “I had a bad ex­pe­ri­ence with Har­vey We­in­stein in my youth, and as a re­sult, chose never to work with him again.”
