There has been a huge amount of talk about the Hollywood harassment scandal recently, which all started with the news that huge Hollywood superstar producer Harvey Weinstein was being outed for a number of different sexual harassment claims. Since then, there have been a number of different Hollywood stars coming out and blowing the whistle on the whole of the acting industry, claiming that this kind of thing is happening all the time and that people are just turning a blind eye to it all.
The latest star to come out and to give their views on the whole Hollywood harassment scandal, is the wonderful actress Kristen Stewart, who has also insisted that there are potential sexual harassment cases happening every day on every set in Hollywood. Kristen says that she has seen it happening on a lot of occasions, going from the very top of the the acting industry all the way down to the bottom, and she has had to step in herself on a few occasions to stop these things from happening.
Stewart shared, "I can't tell you how many times I've saved makeup artists -- because it trickled down, too -- and camera assistants from DPs who are like, 'Woo woo.' It happens on lesser states as well. And when I say saved, I mean momentarily been like, 'Don't, f***er!' And they are embarrassed for one second but it just keeps going every single day.
''So, I'd say let's be aware of this on every level. Those girls are as duct-taped as one could possibly be because they are in fear of getting their next job, as every is actress, too, same deal. I want to express how thankful I am to hear what is typically a murmured sotto conversation."
She added, "We've all been talking about this forever, not to make it specific, but it is, ah, about this m*********er. If I had someone close to me feel like they were subject to that type of manipulation or torment or fear ... especially being in our realm where we work, where we have taken strides toward something not quite equal but somewhat hopeful for sure, I would feel sick and do because I know a lot of these women. So, kudos to those who felt hopeful and comfortable enough to be caught and received and heard by those around them."
We have no doubt that we are going to continue hearing from even more people in Hollywood over the course of the coming days, weeks and months, and that Harvey Weinstein will not be the only big name to get taken down for their actions.
