"I’m fortunate that I’ve never been sexually abused professionally or harassed on a film set."
"But in my personal life, when I’ve been in bars, I can count four times when I’ve been what I’d say was assaulted in a minor way."
"I think everyone has battled their fair share of monsters. It’s not just actresses. It’s teachers; it’s lawyers."
"I’m not talking about rape, but I’m talking about the people who had been grabbed in pubs or their breasts had been fondled by somebody they didn’t know or they’d had someone shove a hand up their skirt."
"It must have been awful for all of those brave women who have come forward and spoken publicly about their experiences. There’s been a lot of pain and a lot of suffering."
"For too long, you really did go, ‘Oh, this is just normal.’ It’s terrifying that was our response. We need to move forward and figure out how to make sure that it doesn’t happen again."
