Paltrow is one of dozens of women coming forward this week to accuse Weinstein of sexual misconduct, telling the New York Times that the movie mogul made unwanted advances towards her in a hotel room when she was 22.

In response to the lengthy allegations made against Weinstein in the New Yorker and New York Times pieces, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

"You five ladies no longer have to pretend to be attracted to Harvey Weinstein". As of Thursday morning, he was said to be in Arizona receiving treatment at a rehab facility amid a storm of sexual harassment allegations.

But with investigations into Weinstein's behavior brewing in NY, he may be better off staying in the US for the time being. This directly contradicts what Harvey's brother Bob Weinstein and company chief David Glasser told staffers in a meeting on Tuesday.

Representatives for Twitter declined to comment Thursday. The board members Tarak Ben Ammar and Richard Koenigsberg did not respond to messages.

They said in a statement: "Whilst BAFTA has previously been a beneficiary of Mr. Weinstein's support for its charitable work, it considers the reported alleged behavior completely unacceptable and incompatible with BAFTA's values". The paper quoted what it called people who spoke on condition of anonymity about the confidential communication.

In the file, Cohen came across a single sexual harassment allegation, from 2014, involving a former temporary employee, Emily Nestor, according to a person familiar with his review. She declined the offer and never meant to complain to human resources personnel, internal records show.

Beckinsale said she told Weinstein no "many times over the years", and his reactions varied. "The investigation revealed that it was just a family dispute", the police department told the magazine, while an anonymous source said that "Harvey and Remy had a yelling argument, and Harvey left her house upset".

His law firm, Boies, Schiller & Flexner, has represented The Weinstein Co. and its predecessor, Miramax, in a variety of legal matters. "In fact, it's one of the easiest things I don't do". The Times was able to identify five of them. Actresses Rose McGowan and Ashley Judd are among the women who come forward. In 2015, settlements were struck with Battilana and Lauren O'Connor, an employee of The Weinstein Co. who submitted a searing memo in November that year alleging persistent sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein.

"Oh, please, I'm sorry, just come on in".

She said the reports were "deeply concerning" as senior politicians called for Weinstein to be stripped of his honorary CBE.

Meanwhile, stars across Hollywood have continued to condemn Weinstein's behaviour.

She said she received two further phone calls from Weinstein, one which she interpreted as telling her to "stop talking". Yea there was the customary follow up thank you from the assistant and i made the best of it so as not to have an enemy in the movie business for what ever reason but i remember being stunned as it was happening thinking why am i not fighting this but there is an aura/physicality about him that needs checked.
