‘90s Flashback: Gwyneth Paltrow Dropped Giant Hint About Harvey Weinstein’s Behavior
Earlier this week, actress Gwyneth Paltrow claimed she was sexually harassed by disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein when she was 22.
In a New York Times article, Paltrow claimed that Weinstein put his hands on her and suggested they head to the bedroom for massages, which she refused.
Now, a video of Paltrow's 1998 interview with David Letterman has resurfaced, in which she discussed Weinstein. When Letterman jokingly asked if she was here willingly or if someone coerced her to be there, the then-26-year-old said, "Do you count Harvey Weinstein as a coercer?”
"I do all my movies for Harvey Weinstein, that's Miramax, and I'm lucky to do them there, but he will coerce you to do a thing or two,” Gwyneth revealed.
Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women, including Ashley Judd and Angelina Jolie. At least one woman has accused him of rape.
Weinstein spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister told the Times in a statement, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counseling and rebuilding his life.”
