Gwyneth Paltrow is being discredited by Harvey Weinstein’s camp.  On the day the producer’s trial for rape was supposed to have started in New York City but eventually postponed, Paltrow is said not to be a credible accuser of Weinstein, given who she is and what she has. 

After more details of what the actress did for her to have a pivotal role in the downfall of Weinstein on the new book entitled “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story that Helped Ignite a Movement” were revealed, Weinstein camp is rushing in to discredit the actress.

“Gwyneth Paltrow comes from Hollywood royalty,” a spokesperson for Weinstein told Deadline. “Her father was a top producer, her mother a famous actor, her godfather is Steven Spielberg,” Weinstein’s rep added. 

The actress, it can be remembered is one of the first Hollywood stars to go public about their assault experience after the exposé broke on October 5, 2017, written by New York Times. “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,” the rep added. 

“Her narrative of her job being at stake is just gratuitous,” the rep concludes. At the present moment, Paltrow’s camp is yet to respond. 

It can be remembered that back in October 2017, Paltrow told Jodi Kantor and Rachel Abrams of New York Times the efforts of the producer to harass her and then silence her. “I was a kid, I was signed up, I was petrified,” Paltrow said. “I thought he was going to fire me,” the “Iron Man” actress added. She even said her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt even confronted the producer. 

The new book described Paltrow as a crucial source of information that eventually led to Weinstein’s defeat. Paltrow is said to be “scared to go on the record but became an early, crucial source, sharing her account of sexual harassment and trying to recruit other actresses to speak.”
