Jolie, Pal­trow sPeak uP against we­in­stein

Khaleej Times - City Times - - STARS -

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.
