‘NY Times’ Reporters Say Gwyneth Paltrow Was One of the First to Speak Out On Harvey Weinstein
The new book, She Said, written by New York Times reporters Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, revealed that Gwyneth Paltrow was among the first actresses willing to go on record about allegations of sexual abuse against Harvey Weinstein.
Megan and Jodi first broke the story, which was followed by Ronan Farrow’s equally groundbreaking story.
The duo recently appeared on the Today show and recounted their investigation that ushered in the rise of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. The women helped publish accusations of assault, with Gwyneth, Ashley Judd, and Angelina Jolie.
“I think that many people will be surprised to discover that when so many other actresses were reluctant to get on the phone and scared to tell the truth about what they had experienced at his hands, that Gwyneth was actually one of the first people to get on the phone and that she was determined to help this investigation, even when Harvey Weinstein showed up to a party at her house early and she was sort of forced to hide in the bathroom,” Megan said on the Today show.
She added, “I think Harvey Weinstein was extremely aware and extremely scared of what the implications would be if his biggest star actually ended up going on the record.”
