In the wake of #MeToo, female A-listers across the world are telling their stories of misogyny and sexism encountered in Hollywood. In an attempt to address the gendered power imbalance that's far too long been ignored in the industry, women are no longer staying silent.
Speaking to InStyle, movie and TV star Jennifer Aniston responded to a question about the movement - with a surprising answer.
"I’ve definitely had some sloppy moves made on me by other actors and I handled it by walking away," she said in an interview for the September issue.
"I’ve never had anyone in a position of power make me feel uncomfortable and leverage that over me. In my personal experience, I’ve been treated worse verbally and energetically by some women in this industry."
Wow! It's not often you hear a story from this perspective, especially in the current climate. Regardless, Aniston agrees that #MeToo is "long overdue", aware that women are in competition from a young age.
"But we also need to be better at listening to one another–that includes men. They need to be part of this conversation,” the 49-year-old said.
But for Jen in particular, it's the mainstream press who pose the biggest problem, dishing out her "fair share of sexism in the media."
"Women are picked apart and pitted against one another based on looks and clothing and superficial stuff. When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it’s the woman who is scorned," she said.
“The woman is left sad and alone. She’s the failure. F that. When was the last time you read about a divorced, childless man referred to as a spinster?"
Too right, Jen. You da queen.
