Gwyneth Paltrow admits to ‘complicated relationship’ with Harvey Weinstein
Gwyneth Paltrow confessed she’s “not sure” how she feels about her former working relationship with disgraced movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
The Goop CEO, 47, appeared onstage at The New York Times DealBook Conference on Wednesday to talk about her business, but the conversation shifted to her involvement in the #MeToo movement.
“You know, I don’t like to be binary about people or about things,” she told moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin. “I think we’re all equal parts or varying percentages light and dark.”
Paltrow was one of the first major Hollywood stars to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct and worked closely with Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey on their investigative book “She Said.”
“He was a very, very important figure in my life. He was my main boss,” she explained. “He gave me an incredible opportunity and yet during that time we had a very, very fraught, complicated relationship. Highs and lows.”
Weinstein produced “Shakespeare in Love,” for which Paltrow won an Oscar.
“And the postscript to that chapter of my life is where it gets extremely complicated for me, because information came to light about who he was and how he was behaving that I didn’t know during my already very difficult time with him. So I’m not sure. I’m not sure how I feel.” Paltrow added.- Source
Untouchable – How Oprah and Hollywood Enabled Harvey Weinstein
The Hypocrisy of Oprah and Hollywood Elites
Oprah Winfrey has championed herself as the mother figure archetype of Hollywood. From struggling with childhood sexual abuse, to working odd news jobs, Oprah’s story has been one we’re made to appreciate.
From being a black woman on daytime television, rising through struggling ratings, to becoming a household name, it is definitely an impressive rise to say the least.
Winfrey is championed as a role model, but especially in the black community she holds a special place. Too many members of the black community feel the pain and reality of racism.
However, lauded as she once was, there are some questionable actions that Winfrey needs to answer.
The ‘Me Too’ movement was kicked off by sexual abuse allegations towards Harvey Weinstein, the famed movie executive.
Several movie actresses, including Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong’o, have claimed Weinstein acted inappropriately with them.
In the time since the allegations, Weinstein has received several delayings of his court procedures. His latest delay moved his trial date from September 2019 to January 2020.
Weinstein was formally charged in May 2018 with several counts of rape, sex abuse and sexual misconduct. He was given an ankle bracelet and can only travel to New York City and Connecticut.
In early 2019, a documentary titled Untouchable premiered at the Sundance Movie Festival.
However, little to no attention was given to the Weinstein documentary, which went into detail about how Weinstein preyed on women using his power and influence as a Hollywood movie executive.
Instead, Winfrey and her associates decided to promote another documentary, Leaving Neverland. The film follows two men that say they were sexually abused by late pop star Michael Jackson as boys. – Source
