Blake Lively is yet another actress to come forward and share her story of being sexually harassed in the industry following the ousting of producer Harvey Weinstein. Lively told the Los Angeles Times that one makeup artist she worked with sexually harassed her “regularly.”
“He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” the Gossip Girl star told the Times.
Lively said one night she was sleeping “on location” and woke up to the artist filming her.
“I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do,” Lively said.
She reported the incident to producers, but she said “nothing” happened.
“Finally, after three months of complaining, they called me into my trailer and said, ‘We need to talk to you.’ I thought, ‘Well finally, they’re going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day,’” Lively said. “And they said, ‘Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can’t have this happen again.’”
Lively had to get her lawyer involved before an investigation was conducted and the makeup artist was dismissed from the project.
Nevertheless, the “unit production manager wrote a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,” Lively said.
