The allegations against Harvey Weinstein are piling on . . . and the names are just getting bigger. GWYNETH PALTROW and ANGELINA JOLIE now say they had run-ins with him in the ’90s. Gwyneth was 22 and had just been cast in the 1996 movie “Emma” when Harvey invited her to his hotel room. It started like a typical business meeting, until Harvey suggested massages. She refused, and told her then-boyfriend BRAD PITT about it. Brad confronted Harvey at a movie premiere, and told him never to touch her again. But all that did was make Harvey go off on Gwyneth. She says, quote, “He screamed at me for a long time. It was brutal . . . I thought he was going to fire me.” Of course he didn’t, and a few years later, she was an Oscar winner for “Shakespeare in Love”, which was made by Harvey’s company Miramax.
Angelina’s story takes place around the time that her movie “Playing by Heart” came out in 1998. Once again, in a hotel room. She didn’t give any details, though. She 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 behavior towards women in any field, any country, is unacceptable.”
ROSANNA ARQUETTE has a similar story. She says Harvey grabbed her hand and pulled it toward his crotch. She didn’t go along, and the part she was supposed to be there to talk to him about went to somebody else.
And MIRA SORVINO says he chased her around a hotel room during the Toronto Film Festival 20 years ago.
In 2015, an NYPD sting operation caught Harvey ON TAPE trying to coerce a woman into his hotel room, and basically admitting that he’d groped her breast the day before. Prosecutors decided they didn’t have enough evidence to bring charges. But doesn’t he admit to touching her inappropriately in the tape? Have a listen here:
Harvey said his wife was 100% behind him. He was wrong. Georgina Chapman announced yesterday that she’s leaving him. And she said, quote, “My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions.”
CHARLIZE THERON never had an issue with Harvey, but she’s not surprised!
Sources say Harvey thinks his brother BOB sold him out to the “New York Times” to get him ousted from their company. Meanwhile, Bob called Harvey, “a very sick man.”
