Gwyneth Paltrow claimed that she was sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein and her boyfriend from that time, Brad Pitt, went to confront him. Here are more details about the confrontation.
Gwyneth was only 22 years at the time when she claimed that Hollywood producer Weinstein sexually harassed her.
She offered a detailed description in which she was discussing the way that he tried to lure her back to his hotel room.
She remembered telling her boyfriend, Brad Pitt, about the encounter.
Brad ended up confronting Weinstein, where he warned him to steer clear of Gwyneth.
‘Brad is the one guy who did step up and confront Harvey,’ and it ‘was during a time in Brad’s career when it was hazardous for him to do so,’ a source close to Brad said.
The same insider continued saying that ‘It was a time when Brad was not a well-established, big star in the film industry, therefore, he had a lot to lose by speaking to Weinstein about his behavior toward Gwyneth.’
Luckily, after Gwyneth’s encounter and Brad’s interference, neither of their careers had to suffer.
When Brad confronted Weinstein, he threatened the producer, a source talked to People, adding that Brad ‘got right in his face, poked him in the chest and said, ‘You will not ever do this to Gwyneth ever again.”
The source said that Brad ‘made it clear there would be consequences’ if Weinstein tried anything with Gwyneth again.
Although Gwyneth and Brad’s careers flourished after their tumultuous time with Weinstein, ‘Brad stayed away from Harvey and his production company for years after that initial incident,’ the insider said.
‘Brad was determined not to work with Harvey after that. The only time he agreed to work with him was in the film, Inglorious Bastards , because Brad was adamant about working with Quentin [Tarantino],’ who directed the film.
‘The recent news and allegations serve as a reminder to Brad about the type of person Harvey is,’ the insider concluded referring to Weinstein and the latest rumors involving Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth as well.
