Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says she was not afraid to stand up to disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The Hollywood star, 46, said after one experience he was not "inappropriate" with her "in that way" again.

She has previously alleged the producer suggested they go to a bedroom for massages when she was 22.

Paltrow told Variety: "He was a bully. I never had a problem standing up to him. I wasn't scared of him ... We had a lot of fights.

"He was a very difficult boss. It was a fraught relationship."

The Oscar winner added: "I had one really uncomfortable, weird experience, then he was never inappropriate with me again in that way."

Allegations of sexual assault against Weinstein, which he has denied, triggered an industry-wide reckoning for men accused of improper behaviour.
