Gwyneth Paltrow accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing her, early in her career. Earlier this month, "The New York Times" published a story accusing the 65-year-old producer of sexual misconduct with a number of women, including 49-year-old actress Ashley Judd. Since then, some women have come forward with their own Sexual Harassment accounts related to Harvey Weinstein, who has been behind the success of many A-list Hollywood celebrities. Since the recent allegations against him surfaced, many actors, actresses, and important figures have condemned Weinstein.

What did Gwyneth Paltrow reveal in her recent interview?

In her recent interview with "The New York Times," 45-year-old Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that Weinstein sexually abused her when she was just 22 years old. She said that she was hired by Harvey Weinstein for a lead role in the movie "Emma," which was based on Jane Austen's novel. Before the production for the project began, Weinstein requested Paltrow to visit him in his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills Hotel, for what she thought was a work-related meeting.

Paltrow accepted the invitation, as it was "on the fax" from her agency which represented her. According to the Oscar-winning actress, once the meeting finished Weinstein placed his hands on Paltrow, indicating that they go to his suite for massages. Paltrow said "I was a kid" adding, "I was signed up. I was petrified."

Paltrow told Brad Pitt about the incident

She refused Weinstein's "offer" and later told Brad Pitt about the whole incident, who was her boyfriend at the time.

Pitt talked to Weinstein about the issue at a movie premiere and asserted that he should never touch Paltrow again. Pitt reaffirmed this incident through his representative to "The New York Times." Later on, Weinstein warned Paltrow not to discuss their hotel encounter with anyone else, making her think that he would fire her after this incident.

Although after some time, Paltrow told her family, a few friends and her agent about the incident, which made the movie producer even more furious.

She claims that he "screamed" at her for quite some time, even making her fear that she'd lose her role in "Emma." The 45-year-old actress says that "We're at a point in time when women need to send a clear message that this is over," adding that this treatment towards women needs to end now for good.
