Jolie, Paltrow sPeak uP against weinstein
A flood of allegations poured in against Harvey Weinstein in on-therecord reports that detailed claims of sexual abuse and included testimonies from Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, further intensifying the already explosive collapse of the disgraced movie mogul.
In a follow-up to its earlier expose, The New York Times reported that many other actresses have in recent days added to the chorus of accusations surrounding Weinstein.
Paltrow described Weinstein’s attempt to lure her, then 22, into giving him a massage. The incident prompted her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt to angrily confront Weinstein at a film premiere.
“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,” said Jolie said in an email to the Times. “This behaviour towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.” Attorneys for Weinstein, 65, did not immediately return messages Tuesday.
