After some of the most influential actors in Hollywood came out against Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assaults, Sandra Bullock is speaking up against the producer too, reports Just Jared.com.
The Oscar-winning actress, although has never had a bad experience with him, she says she always feared the entertainment baron.
“I heard about Harvey and I was afraid of him. I wasn’t asked to be in that world. I learned early on to shut things off so those things didn’t come my way,” Sandra said, in an interview with Sunday Times.
She spoke about how she faced unwanted advances from the entertainment executive in the beginning of the career but she shut them down with humour.
“That’s how I’ve always navigated tricky situations. That’s how I’ve survived. Because very early on in my career I had a situation on a film, which was hard. It came from a person of authority. I kept deflecting it with humor and it didn’t work. Finally, I said, ‘Please just fire me.’ It was a lesson. After that, I tended to remove anything that could be misconstrued as sexual. I locked it down,” Sandra explained.
