Paltrow and Jolie say they were Weinstein victims
    2017-October-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ANGELINA JOLIE and Gwyneth Paltrow are the latest actresses to allege they were victims of sexual harassment by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Both said the incidents happened early in their careers.

They join a string of actresses accusing Weinstein of harassment. Weinstein’s wife, designer Georgina Chapman, said Tuesday that she was leaving him.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions,” the 41-year-old told People magazine. London-born Chapman, co-founder of fashion label Marchesa, and Weinstein, 65, have two children together.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle have added their voice to growing demonstrations of public outrage. Their eldest daughter Malia worked as an intern at The Weinstein Company in New York earlier this year.

A statement released by the Obamas says they “have been disgusted by the recent reports about Harvey Weinstein.” It adds they “celebrate the courage of women who have come forward.”

Also on Tuesday, Paltrow and Jolie both sent statements to the New York Times, which first reported allegations against him last week.

Jolie said in an email: “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.”

In a statement, Paltrow alleged that, after Weinstein cast her in the leading role in “Emma,” he summoned her to his hotel suite, where he placed his hands on her and suggested massages in his bedroom.

“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” she told the newspaper.

She said she told her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt about the incident, and said he confronted Weinstein.

“I thought he was going to fire me,” she said.

Hillary Clinton shared a statement saying that she was “shocked and appalled” by the revelations about Weinstein, who donated to her 2016 presidential campaign and has been a major donor to Clinton and Obama’s Democratic party.(SD-Agencies)
