Goldie Hawn, 72, opened up about her own sexual harassment experiences as she talked about the recent #MeToo movement.
Talking to CNBC, she said: “Sexual harassment unfortunately has been there forever. I had some horrible experiences, as a young dancer in New York City, I mean I’ll top all of them.”
She credits her parents for the way they raised her, saying their strength and support helped her get though it all. “I had a very strong mom, a very strong dad and I had a lot of resilience and I really knew who I was and you know the answer was always no I’ll never get a job like that. A lot of girls don’t.”
Hawn reveals that one of the “attacks” took place in a dark room. “You got to wiggle your way out of it. It’s pretty bad.”
She voiced the opinion that she believes the perpetrators are power tripping.
“I don’t know what this entitlement is. I think we’re actually seeing a lot of illness connected to it now. So this is partially an illness, not just a proclivity or just a feeling of need to do this.
“I think it has to do with narcissism, an ability to think that they’re invincible and they pretty much can do whatever they want to do.” ~Marriska Fernandes
