Blake Lively has been sharing her own awful experiences with sexual harassment. She lived a terrifying story with a makeup artist.
Blake came forward with her own sexual harassment story about her former makeup artist.
‘He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,’ Blake told the Los Angeles Times on October 12.
‘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.’
Blake confessed that she told producers about what had happened, but they didn’t do anything about it.
Instead, they made a huge deal about her dog defecating behind a toilet than about her alleged sexual harassment claims.
Blake took her case to a lawyer, and the investigation led to the makeup artist being removed from the project. On the other hand, he was still able to work in the industry.
‘Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,’ she stated.
Blake, who is married to actor Ryan Reynolds is joining a vast amount of women who are standing up for themselves in such unfortunate circumstances.
‘It’s important that women are furious right now,’ she told the Hollywood Reporter.
‘It’s important that there is an uprising. It’s important that we don’t stand for this and that we don’t focus on one or two or three or four stories, it’s important that we focus on humanity in general and say, ‘That is unacceptable.”
