and warn others when they did,” Jolie revealed.
Gwyneth Paltrow claimed Weinstein, who launched her career when she was only 22 years old, harassed her when he tried to seduce her at his hotel room in the Beverly Hills hotel. “He screamed at me for a long time,' said Paltrow of rejecting him. “It was brutal. I was expected to keep the secret.”
Mira Sorvino noted that she began having career issues after she rejected Weinstein’s advances in 1995.
Rosanna Arquette said she experienced the same job issues after a similar experience with the twisted movie magnate. “I will never do that,” Arquette said she told Weinstein when he attempted to place her hand on his penis.
Asia Argento claimed she felt helpless after Weinstein raped her in 1997 when she was just 21. “He asks me to give a massage. I was, like, ‘Look man, I am no f***ing fool,’” she said of the incident, which took place in a hotel room in France. “But, looking back, I am a f***ing fool. And I am still trying to come to grips with what happened. It wouldn’t stop. It was a nightmare. When I see him, it makes me feel little and stupid and weak. After the rape, he won.”
Model Ambra Battilana recorded Weinstein while he tried to coax her into his hotel room a day after she claimed he groped her breast and was too aggressive. “Oh, please, I’m sorry, just come on in. I’m used to that. Come on. Please,” he told her on the recording
Weinstein invited Emma de Caunes, a French actress, up to his hotel room in the guise of showing her a script he thought she might be a good fit for. When she arrived, he was naked and reportedly had an erection. “I was very petrified,” recalled de Caunes. “But I didn’t want to show him that I was petrified, because I could feel that the more I was freaking out, the more he was excited. I know that everybody — I mean everybody — in Hollywood knows that it’s happening.”
Swingers star Katherine Kendall said Weinstein chased her around while he was naked after he coaxed her to his apartment on the guise he wanted her to pick something up.

about Weinstein in The New York Times. “Women have been talking about Harvey amongst ourselves for a long time, and it's simply beyond time to have the conversation publicly,” Judd said.
Actor Brad Pitt reportedly confronted Weinstein over his sick behavior after he learned about the movie man’s alleged actions with his then-girlfriend, Paltrow.
Ben Affleck has taken to twitter to slam Weinstein in a statement. “I am saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades,” he wrote. “The additional allegations of assault that I read this morning made me sick. This is completely unacceptable, and I find myself asking what I can do to make sure this doesn’t happen to others. We need to do better at protecting our sisters, friends, co-workers and daughters.”
