"I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me", she continued, "I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do". "I've had plenty of things happen to me whether it be trying on a dress for prom at some clothing store, to a director being inappropriate, to a guy walking down the street where you don't think, 'Oh well, that wasn't actually sexual assault - this just just, like, grabbed my butt'".
Days after opening up to The Hollywood Reporter about the "devastating" moment she learned of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct over the years, actress Blake Lively has revealed she too has been a victim of sexual harassment.
When they eventually called her in for a meeting telling her "we need to talk", she presumed the producers had finally made a decision to address her complaint.
Lively said she complained to the producers, but to no avail.
The actor spoke about her experiences with a makeup artist who continued to harass her for months despite her complaints.
"And they said, "Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up".
Blake says she then went to a lawyer about the sexual harassment compliant, resulting in the makeup artist being removed from the project, but did not receive any other punishment.
"Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood", Lively said. It's important that women are furious right now.
On Tuesday, Lively had spoken out oh the Weinstein allegations but did not divulge her own experience with harassment. "It's important that we don't stand for this and that we don't focus on one or two or three or four stories, it's important that we focus on humanity in general and say, 'This is unacceptable'".
