Jennifer Aniston has spoken out about her professional relationship with Harvey Weinstein, and claims the producer bullied her into wearing a dress from his ex-wifes fashion label.
The Friends actress worked with the disgraced Hollywood producer on the 2005 thriller Derailed, which also starred Clive Owen.
According to Jennifer, 50, it was an unpleasant experience during the promotional campaign for the film due to Weinsteins alleged treatment of her.
Weinstein, 67, allegedly pushed her into wearing a dress designed by his then-wife Georgina Chapman for her Marchesa label.
In an interview for Varietys Power of Women issue, Jennifer said: I remember, right when Georginas clothing line Marchesa was starting. Thats when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting. Hed be like, “Ok, so Id like you to wear one of these to the premiere”.
And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasnt what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, “You have to wear the dress”. That was my only bullying. And I was like, “No, I will not wear the dress”.
It seems Jennifers insistence on not wearing the dress worked, as she stated defiantly: Well, what was he going to do? Come over here and make me wear it?!
Weinstein is accused of behaving inappropriately with multiple women over the course of around 30 years.
Stars including Rose McGowan, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have all spoken of their negative experiences of working with the movie producer.
Earlier this month, Weinsteins former assistant wrote a piece for the New York Times magazine accusing him of attempting to rape her in 1998.
Rowena Chiu wrote: After hours of fending off his chitchat, flattery, requests for massages and a bath, ultimately I found myself pushed back against the bed.
Id worn two pairs of tights for protection, and tried to appease him by taking one of them off and letting him massage me, but it hadnt worked. Hed taken off the other pair and I was terrified my underwear would be next.
