Deadline reports that Gwyneth Paltrow can add another notch to her impeccable, likely-overpriced belt of accomplishments, because not only has she mastered menopause, invented yoga three times over, and saved vaginas everywhere from just living their lives uninterrupted by jade, she has also brought down Harvey Weinstein. But seriously, I’m only really making fun of her for the first ones, and she deserves big props for helping to bring down Harv.
The women who won a Pulitzer last year for Public Service because of their reporting on Harvey Weinstein, Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor, have a book out today. She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement is all about their work breaking the sexual harassment story two years ago which would result in Harvey getting charged with lots of rape crimes. It’s the same book which further brought out Lisa Bloom’s shady ways and made Rose McGowan call for her to get disbarred. Apart from dragging Lisa, it was also revealed that Gwyneth was instrumental in publicly exposing Harvey as the big-time disgusting asshole he allegedly is.
The book claims that Gwyneth was actually one of the first big-name sources to go on the record about Harvey. In fact at one point in the book, Gwyneth is hiding in a bathroom at her own house after Harvey showed up to a party she threw:
“Gwyneth Paltrow was one of Harvey’s biggest stars… He had really kind of presented himself as kind of godfather to her over the years… So, I think 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 a bathroom… I think Harvey Weinstein was extremely aware and extremely scared of what the implications would be if his biggest star ended up going on the record.”
Harvey Weinstein’s trial was supposed to start yesterday but was postponed. That didn’t stop Harvey’s team from talking some mad shit about Gwyneth because of her bathroom-hiding ways. A spokesperson told Deadline:
“Gwyneth Paltrow comes from Hollywood royalty… Her father was a top producer, her mother a famous actor, her godfather is Steven Spielberg… She didn’t need to make movies with Harvey Weinstein; she wanted to, and she won top awards and was the top paid female actor for nearly a decade, with Weinstein. Her narrative of her job being at stake is just gratuitous.”
If you ask me, Gwyneth wasn’t gratuitous enough. Let’s get the next batch of goop products out!
