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.
In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, the 30-year-old spoke out about the regular harassment she faced by a makeup artist with whom she once worked.
'He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,' the former Gossip Girl star told the publication.
'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.'
Despite complaining about the make-up artists's behaviour to the project's producers for several months, the mother-of-two revealed no action was taken.
When they eventually called her in for a meeting telling her 'we need to talk', she presumed the producers had finally decided to address her complaint.
Instead, they had an issue with her dog. 'Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up,' they told her. 'And this is very serious and we can't have this happen again.'
Lively alleges that only when she consulted a lawyer did the producers decide to fire the makeup artist. However, they efforts were reportedly half-hearted.
'Our unit production manager wrote him [the make-up artist] a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,' she said.
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.
