London [UK], Oct. 11 (ANI): The whole fraternity of Hollywood is coming out against Harvey Weinstein and now in an explosive revelation, actors like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow are now going on record to allege that Weinstein sexually harassed them.

According to a report, Paltrow said the incident happened when she was 22 and was approached by Weinstein production for 'Emma'. Weinstein called her to his hotel for a business meeting. There, Paltrow alleges Weinstein tried to massage her and invited her into his bedroom.

The actress also shared that she refused Weinstein's advances and later told her then-boyfriend, Brad Pitt, who confronted Weinstein.

She added, "I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified. I felt powerless," adding, Weinstein urged her to "keep the secret" after he was confronted by Pitt.

After Pitt confronted Weinstein, Paltrow said that the producer confronted her.

"He screamed at me for a long time," she said. "It was brutal."

Jolie made similar claims alleging she met Weinstein in a hotel room during the release of her film 'Playing by Heart' in the late 1990s.

Jolie claimed Weinstein made unwanted advances toward her and she rejected him.

The 'Maleficent' star said, "I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did. This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable."

The problems seem to pound on studio mogul as three women have accused Weinstein of rape. (ANI)
