Case Harvey Weinstein : Blake Lively a victim also of sexual harassment - Gala”

"I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do", Lively continued. Shocked to encounter a feeling of general indifference, she made a call to a lawyer.

It has now been more than a week since a series of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein began to come to light, and still more are coming almost every day.

Speaking to The Los Angeles Times, the actress reveals she fell victim to harassment at the hands of a make-up artist whose conduct ultimately resulted in his dismissal.

Blake confessed that she told producers about what had happened, but they didn't do anything about it. An investigation followed, the makeup artist has been dismissed from the filming, but the producers have recasé on another film. Finally, they asked for a meeting, during which Lively was sure they would address the problem. "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 this is very serious and we can't have this happen again'.

After months of enduring harassment, she was summoned by the producers. He still ended up with a letter of recommendation after everything, according to the actress.

Lively's news comes a days after actresses such as Kate Beckinsale, Cara Delevingne, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow spoke out about the harassment they've endured by Weinstein. Rather than being chastised, the makeup artist was given a letter of recommendation from the film's unit production manager, who hoped to prevent any "bad blood". "I've never experienced this with Harvey in any way whatsoever (...) I had never heard these stories, nothing specific, but it is devastating".

"It happens to women all over the place, all the time, to the point where women don't even think that this is a real assault", she told The Hollywood Reporter. "As important as it is to remain furious about this, it's important to also say that this exists everywhere so keep in mind to look everywhere".

"It's important that women are furious right now", she continued.
