Amongst several personalities from the film industry, Jennifer Aniston reveals her struggle story of being bullied by disgraced producer, Harvey Weinstein.
The actress recalls the incident when the producer forced her to wear a dress from Marchesa, his ex-partner's clothing line. The ‘friend’ actor explained the incident in details in an interview, revealing how he forced her to wear a dress from his ex-wife's exclusive clothing line, Marchesa for one of the film’s premiere, while they were shooting in London.
Aniston's account referred to the time she was shooting for Weinstein’s film 'Derailed', in the year 2005. She also informed that it was her first ‘bullying’ experience and that Weinstein forced her despite her refusal to wear the dress for the premiere.
She also claimed that she doesn’t feel threatened by him at all and added, "Well, what was he going to do? Come over here and make me wear it?!" The actress later said that Weinstein has already been accused of multiple cases of sexual harassment and misconduct, and that she is not the only one.
Jennifer’s comments on Weinstein’s actions towards women in the industry came in the wake of her upcoming show 'The Morning Show' at Apple TV+, to be launched on November 1 which focuses on a story of sexual misconduct.
Many women from the industry, apart from Aniston, opened up about their horrible bullying experience with Weinstein, including Actor Ashley Judd. She detailed how the producer allegedly sexually harassed her during a 1997 hotel meeting.
Weinstein will undergo a trial in January next year for charges of rape, predatory sexual assault and criminal sexual act based on the accusations of two women, according to The Washington Post.
Madonna also stated that she knew that Weinstein acted that way with other women in the film business too.
"I was aware that he did the same with a lot of other women that I knew in the business. And we were all, 'Harvey gets to do that because he's got so much power and he's so successful and his movies do so well and everybody wants to work with him, so you have to put up with it.' So that was it," she added.
