Weinstein vs. Paltrow, Jolie, Arquette… and More 😱
Everyone thought the only (?) significant Harvey Weinstein news of the day would be the New Yorker’s article by Ronan Farrow in which 13 women went on the record accusing the producer of unwanted sexual advances, and even assault. The actress Asia Argento said she was raped. There was audio by the NYPD of Weinstein admitting to groping an Italian model; he was not charged.
But the New York Times… which released the genie from the bottle last Thursday… just came out with yet another piece… this time, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Rosanna Arquette went on the record alleging unwanted sexual advances by the producer when they were much younger.
Gwyneth Paltrow, now 45 and financially independent of the movie industry, was only 22 years old when she was called to the Peninsula Beverly Hills to meet with Weinstein. She confided to her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt who spoke to the producer.
Angelina Jolie stated to the Times that it was in the late 1990s when the producer made unwanted sexual advances towards her.
Rosanna Arquette says it was in the early 1990s when she was told to go see the producer in his room, where he found him wearing a bathrobe.
And there are more women with allegations against Harvey Weinstein… French actress Judith Godrèche, Katherine Kendall, Dawn Dunning, Tomi-Ann Roberts (in her case, it was as far back as the year 1984)
