Angelina Jolie has joined other female celebrities who claim they were sexually harassed by media mogul, Harvey Weinstein.
Jolie claims that in 1998, when she was doing a junket for Weinstein’s movie, “Playing by Heart,” she was in a hotel room and Weinstein made “an unwanted advance” toward her. She says she was taken aback and declined the advance and he backed off. The 42-year-old mother-of-six says she never complained about the harassment until now.
She told the New York Times: “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warned others when they did.”
After Times broke the sexual allegations story, four members of the Weinstein Company’s all-male board resigned. The remaining four members (including his brother, Bob) fired Weinstein on Sunday. They issued a statement Tuesday saying they were “shocked and dismayed” by the allegations.
