The Hollywood film producer and former studio executive, Harvey Weinstein has struck into the biggest controversy of his life. The sexual abuses committed by him grow rapidly. The Weinstein Company fired the co-founder of the company on Sunday after sexual harassment allegations.
On Tuesday, The Weinstein Company promises to completely assist “in all criminal or other investigations.”
In an interview, Paltrow confessed that she was sexually harassed by the person who hiked her filmy career and also helped her to win an Academy Award. She said, “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified.”
The statement reads: “The Weinstein Company’s Board of Representatives — Bob Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar — are shocked and dismayed by the recently emerged allegations of extreme sexual misconduct and sexual assault by Harvey Weinstein. These alleged actions are antithetical to human decency. These allegations come as an utter surprise to the Board. Any suggestion that the Board had knowledge of this conduct is false.”
The statement concluded: “We are committed to assisting with our full energies in all criminal or other investigations of these alleged acts, while pursuing justice for the victims and a full and independent investigation of our own.”
In a statement from his spokesman, Mr. Weinstein had tried to defend himself to the magazine. The statement reads: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”
The latest story by Rachel Abrams and Jodi Kantor adds two more big names to Mr. Weinstein’s harassment list in The New York Times report. On Tuesday, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow opened up about Mr. Weinstein, Jolie confessed that Harvey Weinstein had harassed her in past.
Jolie told the paper, “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again.”
