Gwyneth Paltrow Says Part Of Her Leaving Acting Was Due To 'Rough Boss' Harvey Weinstein

Gwyneth Paltrow has opened up in a new interview about her time working for disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

The 48-year-old former actress and lifestyle entrepreneur spoke to SiriusXM’s Bruce Bozzi about moving on from acting and how Harvey was one of the influences in doing so.

Harvey had been Gwyneth‘s boss as Miramax, which he co-founded in 1979, and under the company, she starred in Emma and Shakespeare in Love, which she won an Oscar for.

“This wasn’t conscious at the time, but I started to feel, and, you know, frankly, I think part of my, part of the shine of acting wore off, you know, being in such intense public scrutiny, being a kid who’s like living every breakup on every headline,” Gwyneth shared of her decision to show up less and less on the big screen.

“Like I’m such a homebody, you know, me, I like to be with my old friends and cook and squeeze my kids. Like I don’t want to be alone in a hotel room in Budapest for six weeks,” Gwyneth also said. “Like, it’s just not who I am.”

She added, “So if you compound those things with the fact that like, you know, to be totally candid, I had a really rough boss for most of my movie career at Miramax… So you’re like, ‘I don’t know if this is really my calling.’ So I’m still trying to parse out what came from what, and you know, where, how my life changed course. But I think that stew is a big piece of it.”

Gwyneth was one of the many actresses who came forward with haunting stories of harassment from Harvey. You can read what happened to her here.

She also previously spoke about how ex Brad Pitt confronted Harvey about his actions.

Ashley Judd Wins Appeal in Harvey Weinstein Lawsuit

Ashley Judd is moving forward.

An appeals court ruled Wednesday (July 29) that the 52-year-old actress can pursue a sexual harassment claim against Harvey Weinstein, Variety reported.

The three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the lower court, which had previously thrown out the claim that he held power over her career when he invited her to his room at the Peninsula Hotel in the mid-1990s.

“(T)heir relationship consisted of an inherent power imbalance wherein Weinstein was uniquely situated to exercise coercion or leverage over Judd by virtue of his professional position and influence as a top producer in Hollywood. Therefore, the district court erred when it dismissed Judd’s sexual harassment claim,” wrote Judge Mary H. Murguia.

Ashley sued Harvey back in April of 2018, alleging he lured her into his hotel room, and tried to make her watch him shower and give him a massage. She also sued for defamation and retaliation when she rebuffed his advances, alleging she was blacklisted from the film industry.

“That is, by virtue of his professional position and influence as a top producer in Hollywood, Weinstein was uniquely situated to exercise coercive power or leverage over Judd, who was a young actor at the beginning of her career at the time of the alleged harassment. Moreover, given Weinstein’s highly influential and ‘unavoidable’ presence in the film industry, the relationship was one that would have been difficult to terminate ‘without tangible hardship’ to Judd, whose livelihood as an actor depended on being cast for roles,” the judge also wrote.

The case will now go back to the lower court and proceed on all claims.

Sia Reveals She Had to Step In After Harvey Weinstein Invited Maddie Ziegler to Fly on a Plane with Him

Sia is very protective of Maddie Ziegler and she will do anything to keep her safe.

During a new interview with Zach Sang Show, the 44-year-old entertainer revealed how she would continue working on projects with the 17-year-old dancer so that she could keep her safe.

“I mean, as soon as I met Maddie I felt this extreme desire to protect her, and I think that it was part of my own healing, and I felt this extreme compulsion to protect her,” Sia said. “The irony is that I didn’t want to be famous and I threw this child into the spotlight. She would say to me, ‘Don’t be silly, I was already famous and I wanted to be famous.’ And I would say, ‘And you know, it can stop at any time, right? If you want it to stop, I can make it stop. You can just go back to being a normal person again.’ But she just said, ‘No, I love performing. I love dancing, and I love acting so much.’”

Sia started working with Maddie when she was just 11-years-old. Sia then revealed that disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein once tried to get Maddie to fly on a plane with him.

“So I thought, how’s a good way I can keep her safe is just keep making projects for her, and therefore most of the time we’re working together – and you know I kept her off a plane that Harvey Weinstein tried to get her on,” Sia revealed. “I know there’s times where my insight has really made a difference, like kept her safe… Yeah, that was really disgusting… When he invited her, that’s when I called, I told [her mom] Melissa, I had to. I just said, ‘Please don’t, do not do that, do not do that, do not do that.’”

“Even recently, she was offered a part in a film and I felt that the film wasn’t good enough for her, and so I called Melissa, and was like, ‘Please don’t do this, like this isn’t good for her career. It’s not good for her long term credibility. This is not a good co-star to be in a movie with. So I just try and help guide,” Sia added. “I can be a pain in the butt. I think her manager thinks I’m a real pain in the butt, I’m sure.”

Harvey is currently serving a 23 year sentence in a New York prison after being found guilty of sexual assault and rape in the third degree.
