Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow are the latest starts to accuse Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, adding their stories to the dozen of women who have described their alleged experiences with the legendary movie mogul.
In a new New York Times report, Paltrow says Weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room after the movie mogul hired her for the lead role in Emma when she was 22.
The encounter allegedly ended with Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting a massage.
'I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,' she told the NYT.
The Oscar winner says she also told then-boyfriend Brad Pitt about the incident and the actor reportedly confronted Weinstein at a film premier, telling him to never touch Paltrow again.
Weinstein then called her and threatened her not to speak to anyone else about it, Paltrow told the NYT, 'I thought he was going to fire me,' she said. 'He screamed at me for a long time. It was brutal.'
Angelina Jolie has said she also had a 'bad experience' with Weinstein in a hotel room during the release of Playing by Heart in the late 90s. The Oscar winner claimed Weinstein made unwanted advances to the New York Times.
Writing in an email to NYT, Angelina said, '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. This behaviour towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.'
It has been five days since the New York Times initially released its expose on Harvey Weinstein's long history of sexual harassment, and now over 13 women, including a string of high-profile women, have come out with their own experiences.
Plus, several women have taken to social media to share their support for those who have come forward.
