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.

But I think that stew is a big piece of it.”

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