Harvey Weinstein hired a team to investigate 91 film industry figures in an attempt to stop harassment claims going public, the Guardian reported Saturday.  

Weinstein, 65, was forced out of Weinstein Co., the independent film company he co-founded and catapulted to Oscar glory, after a New York Times investigative piece published in early October said the producer sexually harassed women and paid off his accusers for decades.

At least 29 women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including A-listers Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.

Weinstein’s list, compiled in early 2017, includes actors, publicists, producers, financiers and others working in the film industry. Rose McGowan, who accused Weinstein of raping her, is listed, along with Lauren O’Connor, who once worked for Weinstein and described the environment at Miramax as “toxic … for women.”
