Zoe Kravitz is speaking out on being sexually harassed on a movie set by a unnamed director when she was a mere nineteen years-old.
She opened up about the abuse in the November issue of Rolling Stone. The, now, 29-year old actress recounted how the director’s behavior was “completely inappropriate” and how she was “very uncomfortable” on set.
Although it has been ten years since the incident, she was still reluctant to disclose the movie title or the director’s name. She stated: “I won’t name names, because I don’t want to ruin anyone’s life. But I definitely worked with a director who made me very uncomfortable. I was young — maybe 19 or 20 — and we were on location, staying at the same hotel. And it was full-on: ‘Can I come inside your room’ Just totally inappropriate.”
According to Kravitz, the harassment started when she was working on set getting her hair and makeup done. She appears to carry that horrific memory with her. Kravitz appeared to relive the moment saying: “And then he’d do things like come to the makeup trailer and touch my hair. Or say, ‘Let me see your costume — turn around’ It’s just never OK for someone to do that. Especially when they’re in a position of power.”
Hopefully as the #MeToo movement forges ahead, many more survivors will speak out sooner than later.
