Paltrow alleges that when she was 22 the film producer summoned her to his hotel suite where he placed his hands on her and tried to encourage her into his bedroom for massages. The actress says she confided in her then boyfriend, Brad Pitt, who confronted Mr Weinstein and told him never to touch Paltrow again.

The Italian actress and director says she was raped by Mr Weinstein 20 years ago and did not speak out before now because she feared the film producer would "crush" her.

In 2004, the Italian actress says she went to Mr Weinstein's office for a meeting where she too was raped by him. After the incident, she says she blamed herself for not fighting back harder and had an "eating problem" for years.

In 1997, Mr Weinstein reached a US$100,000 settlement with the American actress after an incident in a hotel room, according to a New York Times report. This week, McGowan accused actor Ben Affleck of lying about his knowledge of Mr Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment and assaults of women.
