Jolie's alleged encounter with the embattled film executive took place inside a hotel room when her 1998 movie "Playing By Heart" - released by Weinstein's Miramax studio - was released, she told The New York Times as part of a bombshell report published Tuesday. He also offered former first daughter Malia a paid internship with The Weinstein Company this summer, and sources said he was always on his "best behavior" around the teen.
Weinstein had built a reputation as a punisher. Weinstein was fired Sunday from the Weinstein Co. She said he pleaded with her to watch him masturbate in exchange for greenlighting a script she was pitching.
She told the BBC the story was scrapped after intense pressure from Weinstein, who was an advertiser at the time.
But no one knew a thing? MORE: "I really thought that it was.my fault", Weinstein accuser saysAfter last week's initial report from the Times, which spotlighted accounts from Ashley Judd and sexual harassment settlements given to people like Rose McGowan, condemnations trickled in from Hollywood and Washington D.C. Weinstein was also a top fundraiser for the Democratic Party.
It was no secret.
Other Democrats have sounded similar notes, with Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the minority leader, saying Tuesday that Weinstein's "despicable actions violate every standard of acceptable behavior".

She told her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt, who then confronted Weinstein. Hopefully, me coming forward with my story will deter a predator and encourage someone who feels hopeless'. The third, Higher Heights, is technically nonpartisan, but since it supports African American women running for office, you can bet that the vast majority of that money will help Democrats. It appears that both Obama and Clinton hoped to skate past a moment of outrage without alienating a formerly powerful Hollywood ally, which demonstrates just how beholden the entire party has become to the entertainment industry for their cash and star power. I did five or six movies with Harvey.
It comes back to that: Weinstein's liberal media connections, his political connections, his power, his celebrity virtue-signaling defenders. "I feel horrible for these women and it's wonderful they have this incredible courage and are standing up now".
