The latest buzz from Hollywood is something that is being lauded by everyone. Actor Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed a confrontation that took place between Brad Pitt and Harvey Weinstein almost two decades ago, when the former even threatened to kill him.

Paltrow and Pitt are former flames, who dated during the late 90s. According to Paltrow, Hollywood film mogul Weinstein had once tried to make advances towards her during those years.

Appearing on The Howard Stern Show, Paltrow revealed to the entire world what took place between Pitt and Weinstein after that.

Paltrow said she was with Pitt at the opening of Hamlet Broadway when Pitt spotted Weinstein and decided to give him a warning about Paltrow.

“If you ever make her uncomfortable again, I’ll kill you or something like that,” Paltrow quoted Pitt as saying to Weinstein.

The Oscar winner believes what Pitt did was awesome and fantastic as he put his fame and power at stake for her.

“It was like the equivalent of throwing him against the wall. It was so fantastic because what he did was, he leveraged his fame and power to protect me at a time when I didn’t have fame or power yet,” she said at the interview.

Paltrow is not the only actor from Hollywood who claims to have been sexually harassed by the producer. In 2017, as many as 60 women accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and rape.

The Harvey Weinstein scandal is one of the most controversial scandals of all time in Hollywood, and it shook the entire industry. Various campaigns like #MeToo and #Time’sUp were started to support the victims of sexual harassment in Hollywood.

Apart from Weinstein, many high profile names such as Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Ben Affleck and James Toback were also accused of sexual harassment by more than 300 women.
