Clooney joins Weinstein condemnation; Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow identified as victims; wife leaves Weinstein



George Clooney and Jennifer Lawrence have joined the list of Hollywood stars condemning Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

The co-founder of The Weinstein Company faces sexual harassment claims dating back nearly three decades, which came to light in the New York Times.

Clooney, whose big-screen big break was a Weinstein film, said the producer's alleged actions were "indefensible".

Weinstein, who has been fired by the board of his company, disputes the New York Times report.

He has vowed to take legal action against the newspaper, which said in the report that he had reached at least eight settlements with women.

Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow are the latest actresses to allege they were victims of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein.

Both said the incidents happened early in their careers.

They join a string of actresses accusing Weinstein of harassment.

Weinstein's wife, designer Georgina Chapman, said on Tuesday that she was leaving him.

"My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions," the 41-year-old wife told media.

London-born Georgina Chapman, co-founder of fashion label Marchesa, the wife of Weinstein and 65-year-old Harvey Weinstein have two children together.
