Brad Pitt has opened up about confronting Harvey Weinstein, after he sexually harassed his then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow.

Gwyneth, who dated Brad for three years until 1997, was one of the many actresses that the disgraced producer allegedly harassed.

After Gwyneth signed on to star in ‘Emma’ and ‘Shakespeare in Love’ in 1995, which Weinstein produced, the movie mogul reportedly tried to lure her into his hotel room and asked for a massage.

The actress confided in her then-boyfriend Brad, and the actor approached Harvey on the opening night of a Broadway production of ‘Hamlet’.

Speaking to Howard Stern, Gwyneth recalled, “He told me exactly what he said. He said, ‘If you ever make her feel uncomfortable again, I’ll kill you.’”

“It was the equivalent of throwing him against the wall, energetically. He leveraged his fame and power to protect me at a time when I didn’t have fame or power yet… he’s the best.”

Speaking to CNN about the moment he confronted Harvey, Brad told CNN: “At that moment, I was just a boy from the Ozarks on the playground, and that’s how we confronted with things.”

“I just wanted to make sure nothing was going to happen further, because she (Paltrow) was going to do two films.”

“I think the interesting thing is that we, Hollywood specifically, but the workplace, men and women’s dynamics is being recalibrated.

“Recalibrated in a very good way that is long overdue. And I do think that’s an important story to tell,” he added.
