Jolie's unsavory encounter with the sexual harasser forced her to dissociate from Weinstein while also sounding a note of warning to her female contemporaries.

"I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warned others when they did," she said.

This prompted an apology from him and opened up a flood of further accusations from women who claimed to have been sexually harassed by the scandal rocked film producer.
