Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, one of the victims who spoke out against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual abuse, joked about Weinstein’s sexual behavior on the “Late Show With David Letterman” in 1998.

Letterman and Paltrow share lighthearted jokes about Weinstein’s behavior during an episode of Letterman’s show.

“Are you here on your own free will?” asked Letterman. “No one coerced you into being here?”

In response, Paltrow asked, “Do you count Harvey Weinstein?”

“I’m grateful he brought you here tonight, thank God to Harvey,” said Letterman, earning laughs from the crowd.


Paltrow also spoke out about Weinstein’s alleged sexual assault Tuesday to The New York Times. Weinstein asked her for a massage and tried to lure her to his hotel room, Paltrow claimed. Her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt threatened Weinstein.

Weinstein allegedly “screamed at me for a long time,” Paltrow claims.
