Jessica Alba says that young actresses have just "accepted" sexual harassment in the industry, and it's breaking our hearts
In the seven months since the allegations against Harvey Weinstein came out in the New York Times and the New Yorker, sparking the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, more and more women in Hollywood are opening up about their own experiences with sexual harassment — often going back decades.
Jessica Alba is the latest actress to share her experiences being sexually harassed while growing up in the entertainment industry. Talking to CNN’s TalkAsia, the actress said, “Of course I have [experienced sexual harassment]. All the time along the way.”
The actress, who began acting when she was 12 (she first appeared in a 1994 movie called Camp Nowhere and had a brief recurring role on Nickelodeon’s The Secret World of Alex Mack), said most young actresses learned that sexual harassment was “accepted” as inevitable in Hollywood.
