The notorious Harvey Weinstein did not spare Jennifer Aniston either. Back in 2017, several women spoke against the Hollywood producer during the #MeToo movement. Avengers: Endgame actress Gwenyth Paltrow was one among them, who felt protected by Brad Pitt. While we've heard numerous stories, Jennifer is now sharing her experience of being bullied by Weinstein in the past. The Friends alum, who has been busy promoting her upcoming series The Morning Show, revealed that he once tried to intimidate her into wearing an outfit to promote the label. 

Appearing on Variety's Power of Women issue, Jen recalled working with the producer back in 2005 on a crime thriller called Derailed. She was starring opposite Clive Owen in the movie. Ahead of the premiere of the film, Weinstein met the actress on the sets of a shoot in London and forced Jennifer to wear an ensemble designed by Marchesa clothing line, owned by Weinstein's ex-wife, Georgina Chapman.

"He came to visit me in London while we were shooting. He’d be like, 'OK, so I’d like you to wear one of these to the premiere,'" Aniston said. The actress added that she had gone through the styles and did not see an outfit that suited her taste. "[Marchesa] wasn’t what it is today. It was not for me. He was like, 'You have to wear the dress,'" she shared. "That was my only bullying. And I was like, 'No, I will not wear the dress.'... What was he going to do? Come over here and make me wear it?!"

If that wasn't enough, at the premiere dinner, Weinstein projected his "piggish" behaviour. "There was the premiere dinner. I remember I was sitting at the dinner table with Clive, and our producers and a friend of mine was sitting with me. And he literally came to the table and said to my friend: 'Get up!' And I was like, 'Oh my gosh.' And so my friend got up and moved and Harvey sat down," Aniston recalled. "It was just such a level of gross entitlement and piggish behavior."

Jennifer's upcoming show touches upon the repercussion of the #MeToo movement on a morning show. The lead anchor of the show is sacked after sexual assault allegations against him make the headlines. It is up to Jennifer and Reese Witherspoon's on-screen roles to keep the show going on while fighting through the politics and games behind the camera.
