Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow among women who say Weinstein harassed them

Thirteen women have come forward to accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexually harassing or assaulting them.

Three have told The New Yorker that they had been raped.

Among the group are actresses Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Paltrow told the publication that Weinsten made advances at her when she was hired to play the lead in his adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel "Emma."

She says before they began filming , Weinstein asked her to come to a meeting with him at his suite at a Beverly Hills hotel. She told the New Yorker the meeting "ended with Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting they head to the bedroom for massages."

International correspondent Adam Gilchrest has more on the story.

His own wife has actually said that she is leaving him over this scandal.

They are all claims that have yet to be proven in one way or another.
