Actress Kristen Stewart attended the Elle Women in Hollywood 2017 event on Monday, where she spoke about sexual harassment in the industry. Kristen highlighted the hard time faced by make-up artists and camera assistants.
“I want to express how thankful I am to hear what is typically a murmured sotto conversation. We’ve all been talking about this forever, not to make it specific, but it is about this motherf**ker. If I had someone close to me feel like they were subject to that type of manipulation or torment or fear... especially being in our realm where we work, where we have taken strides toward something not quite equal but somewhat hopeful for sure, I would feel sick and do because I know a lot of these women (sic),” she said, according to Hollywood Reporter.com.
“I can’t tell you how many times I’ve saved make-up artists and camera assistants from DPs who are like, ‘woo woo.’ It happens on lesser states as well. And when I say ‘saved,’ I mean momentarily been like, ‘Don’t, f**ker!’ And they are embarrassed for one second, but it just keeps going every single day. So I’d say let’s be aware of this on every level. Those girls are as duct-taped as one could possibly be because they are in fear of getting their next job, as every actress is, too,” Kristen added.
