Back in October 2017, Gwyneth Paltrow alleged she was sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein. And now, she’s continuing to open up about the unfortunate incident by revealing her ex-boyfriend Brad Pitt was extremely angry with the entire situation at the time.
“I told him right away and I was very shaken by the whole thing,” she told Howard Stern on his Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday, May 23. “We were at the opening of Hamlet on Broadway. Harvey was there and Brad Pitt — it was like the equivalent of throwing him against the wall, energetically. He said, ‘If you ever make her feel uncomfortable again, I’ll kill you,'” she said of Brad being protective. “Or something like that.”
The 45-year-old says that she was grateful for Brad’s actions looking back. “It was so fantastic,” she said. “He leveraged his fame and power to protect me at a time when I didn’t have fame or power yet.”
Gwyneth opened up about her “hotel incident” with Harvey during the interview. “We had one incident in a hotel room where he tried to make a pass at me,” she confessed. He had asked Gwyneth, who was 22 at the time, to give him a massage while they discussed her role in his film Emma. “It was weird,” she said. “I was alone in a room with him. It was out of the blue. I was blindsided. I was shocked.”
When speaking to The New York Times last year, Gwyneth said, “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified.” She added, “I thought he was going to fire me,” she said. “He screamed at me for a long time. It was brutal.”
