Jennifer Aniston said Harvey Weinstein tried to force her to wear a dress from a clothing line owned by his former wife.
The 50-year-old is starring with Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell in Apple TV+ drama The Morning Show, which focuses on the fallout from a high-profile entertainment figure being brought down by allegations of sexual misconduct.
Producers thought up the show before Weinstein's downfall in October 2017 but its plot was altered after the MeToo movement sent shockwaves through the industry.
Jennifer worked with the once-powerful movie mogul Weinstein on the 2005 thriller Derailed and revealed how he tried to force her to wear a dress from Marchesa, founded by his ex-wife, British designer Georgina Chapman.

The Friends star told Variety: "I remember, right when Georgina's clothing line Marchesa was starting. That's when he came to visit me in London while we were shooting.
“He'd be like, 'OK, so I'd like you to wear one of these to the premiere'.
"And I went through the book, and at the time, it wasn't what it is today.
It was not for me. He was like, 'You have to wear the dress.'
“That was my only bullying. And I was like, 'No, I will not wear the dress."'
Aniston, 50, said Weinstein "knew better" than to force her to wear the dress.
"Well, what was he going to do? Come over here and make me wear it?" she added.
Weinstein, who was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood for more than two decades, has been accused by dozens of women of sexual assault.
He denies all allegations of non-consensual sex and is awaiting trial in New York for rape charges.
