The list of #Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment victims is growing day by day as more women continue to come forward. On Tuesday, acclaimed actresses #Gwenyth Paltrow and #Angelina Jolie shared stories of their experiences with the famous producer. The New York Times' investigative piece originally revealed eight women Weinstein sexually harassed. Since it was published on Thursday, the list has grown to over a dozen.

Make it or break it

Gwenyth Paltrow told the New York Times that she was hired for her first big film role, "Emma," by Weinstein. Before beginning filming, the producer invited her to his hotel suite for a meeting.

When she arrived, it turned out that Weinstein was looking for more than a meeting.

She says she was invited to his bedroom where he was looking to be massaged. “I was a kid; I was signed up, I was petrified,” she said. The then-upcoming actress did not accept Weinstein's advances and instead left the suite. She drove away, scared, thinking “I thought you were my Uncle Harvey,” as she saw him as a mentor at the time.

Paltrow decided to inform Brad Pitt, her boyfriend at the time, of the encounter. Pitt took the matter into his own hands and confronted Weinstein at a public event, telling him never to touch her again. He did not take the message well, telling Paltrow never to tell anyone about the incident again. She says she was then worried about being fired.

Unacceptable behavior

In an email to the New York Times, another A-list celebrity broke her silence about Weinstein.

Angelina Jolie said that she had a bad experience with the producer in her youth. Weinstein apparently made advances on her in a hotel room in the late 1990's, which she was not okay with.

Jolie told Times that she made the decision never to work with the producer again after the incident. She also says she warned others when she knew they would be working with him. Jolie says that this kind of behavior is not acceptable in any place or field.

When will he stop denying?

Harvey Weinstein's spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister released a statement about the continuing allegations on Tuesday. She says that Weinstein denies any claims of non-consensual sex. She also said that there were no consequences for any women who did not accept his advances.

Hofmeister told the press that Weinstein would not be available for further comments as he is trying to focus on family, therapy, and rebuilding his life [VIDEO]. It has not even been a week since the New York Times first released their explosive story on Weinstein, meaning there could be many more accusations to come.
