Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s kingdom appears to be crumbling around him. Each day brings new accusations of sexual harassment. Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie became two of the latest actresses share their stories.
Angelina Jolie says she had a bad experience with the film executive in the 1990’s. She decided never to work with him again and warned others who chose to. “This behavior towards women in any field, in any country is unacceptable.”
Gwyneth Paltrow was working on the movie “Emma,” at the time when Harvey invited her to his hotel room. She refused and told her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt. Brad came to Gwyneth’s defense, but it just made matters worse. She says, “He screamed at me for a long time. It was brutal. I thought he was going to fire me.” He didn’t though. Paltrow went on to win an Oscar for her work on “Shakespear in Love,” which was made by Harvey’s company Miramax. Gwyneth, says Harvey was “alternately generous and supportive and championing, and punitive and bullying.”
Rose McGowan has accused both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck of knowing about Harvey’s behavior and being involved in a coverup. Both men have denied the accusations. Yahoo has posted a link of an Oscar Joke by Seth MacFarlane back in 2013. The post calls into question the reputation of Weinstein. You can see the video here. Go to 3:15.
