More Hollywood celebrities are coming forward with claims of sexual harassment against studio executive and DNC mega donor Harvey Weinstein, just days after the bombshell allegations came to light, reports Fox News.
Accusations of rape, sexual assault, and harassment poured in after the New York Times published an article outlining Weinstein’s history of misconduct towards co-workers, actresses, and friends. The New Yorker is reporting that the studio executive raped at least three women, and forcibly assaulted four more.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow told the New York Times Weinstein invited her to his hotel room for “massages” after casting her in a leading role.
“I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” said Paltrow, describing her terrifying experience as a then 22-year-old actress. “I thought he was going to fire me,” she added.
Angelina Jolie also spoke-out against Weinstein, saying she had an “experience” with the producer and “chose never to work with him again.”
“As a result, [I] chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did… This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable,” said Jolie.
High-powered studio executive Harvey Weinstein was forced out of his own company over the widening scandal; with more and more woman coming forward to accuse the bigwig of misconduct. Prominent Democrats are increasingly under pressure to return money donated by Weinstein, but have so far remained largely quiet on the subject.
