Blake Lively Reveals She Was Once Sexually Harassed By A Makeup Artist
More celebs are speaking out about what goes on behind closed doors in the film industry, following allegations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein.
Blake Lively has opened up about her own terrifying experience, after she was sexually harassed by a makeup artist on the set of a movie she was working on.
“He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” she told the LA Times.
“I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me. I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do.”
Apparently when Blake told producers what had happened, nothing was done.
“Finally, after three months of complaining, they called me into my trailer and said, ‘We need to talk to you.' I thought, ‘Well finally, they’re going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day.’ And they said, ‘Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can't have this happen again.’ ”
The actress visited a lawyer, and the makeup artist was removed from the project, but received no other punishment.
“Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,” she said.
