Gwyneth Paltrow opened up The Today Show Thursday about her decision to out Harvey Weinstein for his allegedly predatory behavior. Since the Weinstein story broke in 2017, dozens of women have come forward accusing the producer of sexual misconduct, including rape.
Paltrow revealed how having a daughter made her want to speak up accused rapist Harvey Weinstein harassing her at age 22.
Paltrow said: "I was really scared. I think society had shown us only basically examples where women coming forward ended up not being advantageous for the woman but I really felt like it was time. I think also having a teenage daughter that's the love of my life, and worrying about her going into the workplace and feeling like if there was ever a chance that there could be a cultural shift on this stuff, I wanted to participate in. I never could have imagined that collectively a shift this seismic would happen, but I feel proud that I have a small part in it."
Weinstein is set to go to trial in January 2020. He has pleaded not guilty.
MORE ON KIDS
The Politician star shares 15-year-old daughter Apple Martin and 13-year-old son Moses Martin with her ex Chris Martin, and when host Savannah Guthrie, who has two kids under the age of 6 asked her what to expect, Paltrow may have gotten more real than she expected.
Paltrow started out G-rated: "It's the best. They're really coming into themselves. They're hilarious. They're smart. They can talk. They can sort of muse about things—it's the greatest."
Then swerved: "Yeah, they can be kind of, you know, d***s once in a while," she said, prompting a bleep.
"We don't usually put a 7-second delay on when Gwyneth comes on," Guthrie added.
"Sorry about that," Paltrow quipped. "Sorry! Sorry America!"AUDIO: GWYNETH PALTROW ON HARVEY WEINSTEIN
