Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow Say Weinstein Sexually Harassed Them

Star actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, along with several other actresses, said that film producer Harvey Weinstein also sexually harassed them early in their careers, The New York Times reported Tuesday. Paltrow said Weinstein put his hands on her and asked her for a massage after she had been hired for the lead in the Jane Austen adaptation Emma. Paltrow told Brad Pitt, her boyfriend at the time, who confronted Weinstein at a theater. “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” Paltrow recounted. Jolie told the Times that Weinstein made unwanted advances on her in a hotel room in the early 1990s; and since then, she vowed to never work with him. Weinstein was fired from his eponymous film studio after the Times reported last week that he had settled at least eight sexual harassment allegations. The New Yorker published on Tuesday several sexual-assault allegations from various actresses and models dating back to at least the early ’90s.
