Gwyneth Paltrow says Brad Pitt threatened to kill Harvey Weinstein for her

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow on Wednesday divulged more details on how Brad Pitt confronted Harvey Weinstein after the producer allegedly sexually harassed the then-22-year-old actress in a hotel room more than two decades ago.

When the interviewer said he loved Pitt for what he did, Paltrow said "he is the best" and that she too loves him for it.

Paltrow said her boyfriend-of-the-time "leveraged his fame and power" to defend her and she adores him for that.

Gwyneth told Brad what happened right away and when they were at the opening night of Hamlet on Broadway, he made a decision to confront Harvey.

Paltrow said that Pitt relayed to her afterwards what he had told Weinstein.

Thinking back to her time dating Affleck, with whom she was in a relationship from 1997 to 2000, Paltrow responded, "It's interesting".

During her lengthy conversation with Stern, Paltrow admitted she doesn't want any more children ahead of her marriage to producer Brad Falchuk.

The remaining charge against Foster - possession of an assault weapon - has been reduced to a misdemeanor. The pretrial date for that charge is set for June 6.

She said that before the shooting began, he asked her to his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for a work meeting which the actress says ended with Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting they head to the bedroom for massages. However, Weinstein did issue a lengthy apology following The New York Times report.

"I told [Pitt] right away, and I was very shaken by the thing and I had signed up to do two movies with [Weinstein]", she continued.

"It's always tricky with kids and trying to gently blend families and it's hard", Paltrow said. She said that she had been having a great experience with Miramar until the experience that she called "weird" to Stern.

"He screamed at me for a long time", said Paltrow.

Weinstein has now been accused by more than 50 women, including Uma Thurman, Lupita Nyong'o, Kate Beckinsale, Salma Hayek and Cara Delevigne, of sexual assault, harassment and other inappropriate behavior.

"I thought he was going to fire me", she recalled.
