Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Others Say Weinstein Harassed Them
After she told Mr. Pitt about the episode, he approached Mr. Weinstein at a theater premiere and told him never to touch Ms. Paltrow again.
“This is Harvey Weinstein,” Katherine Kendall, who appeared in the film “Swingers”
and television roles, remembers telling herself after an encounter in which she said Mr. Weinstein undressed and chased her around a living room.
He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counseling and rebuilding his life.”
Even in an industry in which sexual harassment has long persisted, Mr. Weinstein stands out, according to the actresses
and current and former employees of the film companies he ran, Miramax and the Weinstein Company.
“Welcome to the Miramax family,” Mr. Weinstein told Katherine Kendall in 1993, she said.
If she could not bare her breasts in private, she would not be able to do it on film, Ms. Roberts recalled Mr. Weinstein saying.
Later, Ms. Arquette was in the Miramax film “Pulp Fiction” but said she avoided Mr. Weinstein.
Mr. Weinstein was in a white bathrobe, complaining of neck pain
and asking for a massage, according to Ms. Arquette and Maria Smith, a friend she told soon afterward.
After a meeting set up by her agent, he gave her scripts, including for the film “Beautiful Girls,”
and invited her to a screening, which turned out to be a solo trip with Mr. Weinstein to a cinema near Lincoln Center in Manhattan.
