Unlike, well, pretty much the rest of the world, Lindsay Lohan doesn’t think the #MeToo movement is giving the female population any power.
The Freaky Friday star showed very little sympathy for the women across the globe who have bravely share their own harrowing experiences with sexual misconduct with Britain’s The Times on Wednesday.
“Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways. If it happens at the moment, you discuss it at that moment,” Lohan, 32, said. “You make it a real thing by making it a police report.”
And though Lindsay knows she shouldn’t speak of something she hasn’t go through—she said it herself—and claims to be “very supportive of women,” she still went on to slam the victims of alleged sexual misconduct who’ve come forward without filling police reports.
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women. You have these girls who come out, who don’t even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened.”
This is not the first time the actress has made some highly controversial remarks against the movement. Last year, she defended disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein after he initially face a slew of sexual assault allegations.
“I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on […] He’s never harmed me or did anything to me. We’ve done several movies together. I think everyone needs to stop. I think it’s wrong.” she said in an Instagram video, which she later deleted.
Yes, bad publicity is good publicity, but we’re not entirely sure this kind of comments are the best way to have your career take off again, LiLo.
