She says Weinstein then warned her to stay quiet about what had happened. Gwyneth said she was completely "blindsided" by the request. "'I thought he was going to fire me, '" she said.
She also said that she did not tell a single person that entire summer that she had been talking to Kantor and Twohey.

She detailed how, after being cast in Weinstein's Jane Austen adaptation of Emma, he touched her and invited her into his hotel room for a massage.
