The “Friends” star also recalled a second time she interacted with the disgraced movie mogul, and how she felt bullied into wearing his ex-wife, Georgina’s clothing line, Marchesa.

“I remember, right when [his ex-wife] Georgina’s clothing line Marchesa was starting,” the “Horrible Bosses” star explained. “That’s when 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,'” she added. “And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn’t what it is today. It was not for me.”

Aniston continued, “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.’ Well, what was he going to do? Come over here and make me wear it?!”

The super star’s interactions with Weinstein came before numerous actresses and other women came forward and accused the former movie producer of a variety of sexual misconduct and sexual assault allegations, which helped sparked the #MeToo movement.
