In the same NYT piece, Pitt's estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, also spoke out about Weinstein, claiming he allegedly made unwanted advances towards her during the release of Playing by Heart in 1998.
"I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did," Jolie revealed to the NYT via email. "This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable."
Weinstein was fired by his own company, The Weinstein Company, over the weekend, following the Times' initial article published last week, which claimed that he had harassed women for three decades.
In a statement to ET, Weinstein's lawyer, Charles J. Harder, called the report "saturated with false and defamatory statements." He also said Weinstein and his team are planning to file a lawsuit, with any proceeds being donated to women's organizations.
In a statement to the NYT on Tuesday, Weinstein's spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeister added: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances. He will not be available for further comments, as he is taking the time to focus on his family, on getting counseling and rebuilding his life."
