Angelina Jolie has given a candid interview about her encounters with Harvey Weinstein and how Brad Pitt's connection with the producer led to quarrels between the former pair. Angelina was asked by The Guardian to talk about the “first time she felt sufficiently disrespected in the industry to tell somebody to f–k off.” She responded by saying, “Erm… well, no surprise, Harvey Weinstein. I worked with him when I was young.”

According to Just Jared, Angelina seemed to imply that Weinstein attempted to assault her, but she was able to flee the room. She said, “If you get yourself out of the room, you think he attempted but didn’t, right? The truth is that the attempt and the experience of the attempt is an assault.” She continued to talk about the experience and said, “It was beyond a pass, it was something I had to escape. I stayed away and warned people about him. I remember telling Jonny, my first husband, who was great about it, to spread the word to other guys – don’t let girls go alone with him."

However, the actor also added that when she was asked to do The Aviator, she said no because he was involved. "I never associated or worked with him again. It was hard for me when Brad did.” Jolie is alluding to Pitt's involvement in the Weinstein-produced "Inglourious Basterds," directed by Quentin Tarantino, which she acknowledged was a source of tension between them. “We fought about it. Of course it hurt,” Angelina said about Brad continuing to work with Weinstein despite knowing what happened to her. She decided not to help him promote the film.

Meanwhile, Jolie also discussed her choice to file for divorce, which she claimed she deliberated about for a long time before pulling the trigger. “I’m not the kind of person who makes decisions like the decisions I had to make lightly,” she explained. “It took a lot for me to be in a position where I felt I had to separate from the father of my children.”

Anonymous : Working with H.arvey Weinstein opened many doors to Angelina Jolie. The movie Playing by heart was an oscar-contending movie, even though it didn't win one. In less than a year after working with Weinstein, Jolie won an Oscar. Ok, H.arvey didn't produce the movie she won an Oscar for, but he gave Jolie the big break which made her a star, and because of it producers afterwards considered her worthy to hire in their Oscar nominated movies.

Anonymous : Angelina Jolie is being disingenuous. Miramax not only made films but distributed films including ones made by other companies. The company's involvement in The Aviator was limited to the distribution of the film, in addition although the Weinstein brothers were still involved with the company it had been sold to Disney some 10 years before The Aviator was filmed. It was Disney who co-produced the film and who took the decision to distribute it via their subsidiary company Miramax. In their role as distributers neither Weinstein or his brother were involved in the actual making of the filn which is why neither of them are named as producers on Wikipedia.

Anonymous : Angelina is a liar. Jonny Lee Miller worked with Weinstein 3 more times after 1996. She never told Jonny about possible rape and never told Brad Pitt either. Even Billy Bob worked with Weinstein as well. So why is Angelina mocking and degrading Pitt?

Anonymous : I remember telling Jonny, my first husband, who was great about it, to spread the word to other guys – don’t let girls go alone with him. If the attempted assault happened when she was 21, then it was 1996. Jolie was married to Jonny Lee Miller from 1996-1999. Miller has been in at least 3 movies produced by Weinstein: Mansfield Park (1999), Dracula 2000 (2000), and Mindhunters (2004).

Anonymous : Brad Pitt worked for Quentin Tarantino as part of the Weinstein Company-produced flick Inglourious Basterds. Years later, Angelina Jolie called him out for it, but a source familiar with the situation also told TMZ that while The Weinstein Company did distribute Inglourious Basterds it was simply Tarantino that Pitt was interested in and whom Pitt felt he was working for. The source noted he never "teamed up" with Harvey Weinstein. She is misrepresenting the truth and lying again

Anonymous : Weinstein got the rights to Killing Them Softly via Auction. D-listed has banned most of the comments and users defending Brad Pitt. They keep mocking him over false claims of lying & cheating while ignoring Aniston did the same thing. Gross how she was never held accountable for her smear campaign, lies, and own illicit affairs with Matt LeBlanc or Theroux or etc
