Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie are among the actresses harassed by producer Harvey Weinstein . And sharing their experiences with the New York Times , Gwyneth was the most talked about with the publication, Angelina only told what happened through an email.

Gwyneth Paltrow told the New York Times interview that when she was 22, she got a role that would lead her to stardom. Producer Harvey Weinstein hired her to star in Jane Austen's "Emma" adaptation. Before the filming began, he invited her to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a business meeting that began quietly.

He ended with Mr. Weinstein placing his hands on Gwyneth and suggesting that they go into the room for a massage, "she said.

"It was a girl, signed, petrified," she said in the interview, publicly revealing that she was sexually harassed by the man who brought her to fame and then helped her win an Oscar.

Gwyneth refused, and told her then-boyfriend, Brad Pitt . Brad confronted Weinstein by telling him never to touch her again and the producer threatened the actress for talking. "I thought I was going to say goodbye," she said.

Brad confirmed this to the publication through a rep.

The 45-year-old actress emphasized how vulnerable she felt when she was 22 when Mr. Weinstein had hired her for that starring role. On a trip to Los Angeles, she received a schedule from her agents for a meeting at the hotel with Weinstein. There was nothing to suspect, because "it's on the fax, it's from the CAA," - she said referring to the Creative Artist Agency, which represented her.

When Weinstein tried to massage her and invited her to her room, she immediately left, she said, and she remembered feeling speechless as she left. "I thought it was my Uncle Harvey," he recalls thinking at that moment, explaining that she saw him as his mentor.

She told Brad and he approached Weinstein at the premiere of the movie and told her never to play it again.

After that Weinstein called Gwyneth and scolded her for telling someone. (She says she told some friends, family and her agent).

"He yelled at me for quite some time," he said, once again fearing to lose his role in "Emma." "It was brutal." But she was firm, and insisted that he put the relationship to a professional level.

Even when Gwyneth Paltrow became the "First Lady of Miramax" and won an Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love" in 1999, very few people knew of Weinstein's movements.

Like many other women interviewed for the report, Gwyneth felt she should suppress the experience. She praised Weinstein in public, posed with him for the photos and played the radiant star role beside the powerful producer. But her working relationship worsened over the years, and she distanced herself.

He was alternately generous, sympathetic, supportive, and was stalker and punitive."

Gwyneth Paltrow says she supports all the women who have gone out to speak and hopes to help them not feel that they are alone.

"We are at a point where women need to send a clear message that it is over. This way of treating women ends now. "

Angelina Jolie was also harassed by Harvey Weinstein during the release of "Playing by Heart" in the late 90s in her room in a hotel, he made unwanted moves which she rejected.

"I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, I decided to never work with him again and I warned others when he did," Jolie said in an email.

"This behavior against women in any field, any country, is unacceptable."

The modus operadi of the producer was always the same, Weinstein took them to a private place to discuss about work, the script or the campaign for the Oscar. Then he would try to start something with them, a massage, or touch them inappropriately, take off his clothes or explicitly offer sex-for-work deals.

And it was an open secret in Hollywood , during the announcement to the 2013 Oscar nominees, comedian Seth MacFarlane joked, "Congratulations to the five women who no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein."

But although many wonder why no one spoke before, they say that the established actresses were afraid to speak because they had work, those who were not established were fearful because they did not have.

You can see the rest of the actresses and women harassed by Harvey Weinstein in the new New York Times report. Among them is also Rosanna Arquette - who starred in "Desperately Seeking Susana" and "New York Stories". Born in a family of actors, Arquette says that in the early 1990s, Weinstein asked her to go to the Beverly Hills Hotel to pick up a screenplay.

Harvey was in a bathrobe, complaining of a pain in the neck and asking for a massage, according to Rosanna and her friend Maria Smith, to whom she told him what had happened next. Arquette says she tried to recommend a professional masseuse, but Weinstein grabbed her hand and put it on her crotch. She immediately walked away. He began to tell her about the famous actresses who had slept with him - something common in him according to other women who have had encounters with Weinstein.
