Weinstein strikes back as Paltrow: his spokesperson says the star & # 39; Hollywood royalty & # 39; and & # 39; did not have to make any movies with him – she wanted & # 39;
- Gwyneth Paltrow played an important role in bringing down Mogul Harvey Weinstein
- She claims that Miramax boss suggested that they massage each other in a hotel in 1996

- Now a Weinstein spokesperson has said that Paltrow wanted to film with him & # 39; to make
Harvey Weinstein representatives have claimed that Gwyneth Paltrow wanted & # 39; making films with the shameful producer.
Paltrow played a role in bringing down Weinstein and recruited other Hollywood stars to speak out against him, according to a new book.
The 46-year-old actress claimed that Weinstein laid her hands on her and suggested that they give each other massages in his suite at the hotel in Beverly Hills, after having clothed her in Emma in 1996.
But coming forward was & # 39; hair-raising & # 39; for her because Weinstein had made her a star and she feared the story & # 39; sleazy & # 39; would be and her career would end, it was claimed.

Now a Weinstein spokesperson has reversed Paltrow's role to shed light on the allegations of sexual harassment that the producer had to undergo until the hearing was postponed.
The representative said that Shakespeare's star in Love, Sliding Doors and Seven, would damage her career by claiming that Weinstein & # 39; free & # 39; used to be.
He told Deadline: & # 39; Gwyneth Paltrow is from Hollywood royalty. Her father was a top producer, her mother is a famous actor, her godfather is Steven Spielberg.
& # 39; She didn't have to make films with Harvey Weinstein, she wanted to, and she won top prizes and was the best paid female actor for almost ten years, with Weinstein.
& # 39; Her story about her task at stake is just free. & # 39;
At one point, Weinstein came early to a party at Paltrow's house, so she hid in the bathroom and called the reporters asking what to do, the actress said.

The details of Paltrow & # 39; s allegations are revealed in She said: Breaking the story about sexual harassment that helped trigger a movement, by journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, describing Weinstein's downfall since October 2017 after articles in the New York Time and the New Yorker magazine uncovered him.
Paltrow's decision was especially difficult because Weinstein had played her as a relatively unknown 22-year-old in the adaptation of Jane Austin & Emma, who made her a star.
He also threw her as the lead actor in Shakespeare in Love, confirming her as an A-star when she won the Best Actress Oscar.
Paltrow told the New York Times in 2017: & # 39; I was a kid, I was signed in, I was petrified. & # 39;
More than 80 women have since reported to accuse the 67-year-old, now on trial in January, of sexual assaults and & # 39; predatory & # 39; sexual behavior.
But in the beginning it was extremely difficult to persuade someone to open up, Kantor and Twohey said.
Dozens of actresses, including Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan and Salma Hayek, have accused him of inappropriate behavior or sexual abuse.
