The Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment and assault allegations are continuing to make waves in Hollywood because more and more actresses claim that they were victims of the producer. Before Angelina Jolie went public with her own story, she talked with Brad Pitt about how this would affect their family.
According to the Mirror, Angelina and Brad discussed what the impact of her coming forward would have on their six children.
In a recent email to the New York Times, the actress confessed that she had a ‘bad experience’ with Weinstein in 1998 around the release of her film Playing by Heart.
Weinstein came on to her in a hotel room, but she rejected him and warned others about working with him.
After the incident, Angie decided never to work with Weinstein or his company again.
She concluded the email by writing that Weinstein’s behavior was unacceptable.
The Mirror source claims that Angelina wanted to communicate with her ex because the former couple is working as a unit, especially when it comes to things that affect their family.
Angie is not the only ex of Brad Pitt who claimed Weinstein harassed her. Huffington Post stated that also Gwyneth Paltrow rejected the advances of the influential producer.
This happened back in 1996 after the actress won the lead role in Emma and at the time she was dating Brad Pitt.
She claims that Weinstein tried to put his hands on her and invited her to his bedroom.
She left immediately and told Brad what happened. The actor reportedly confronted Weinstein about the incident and told him never to touch her again.
This was a significant risk for both actors because it was before either of them were big stars, and it could have negatively affected their careers.
Gwyneth said the backlash from Weinstein was brutal and that he screamed at her for ‘a long time.’ Currently, it is said that Weinstein is not even taking his sex rehab seriously.
