Gwyneth Paltrow says Brad Pitt threatened to end film producer Harvey Weinstein after an alleged incident of harassment in a hotel room.
The actress who resumed her role as Pepper Potts for last month’s Avengers: Infinity War, detailed her then-boyfriend’s reaction on The Howard Stern Show Wednesday.
“We had one instance in a hotel room, where he made a pass at me,” Paltrow told Stern.
The 45-year-old first went public with her accusation in The New York Times last October. Weinstein had hired Paltrow, then 22, as the lead in the 1996 screen-adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel Emma. Before shooting began, he summoned her to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting which Paltrow says ended with Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting they head to the bedroom for massages.
“It was out of the blue,” Paltrow said Wednesday, adding she was “blindsided.”
