Sarah Jessica Parker with her idol…
Key word being “almost.”
What’s the point of bringing this up if you aren’t going to name the culprit? She’s now a big-time actress/producer worth $100 million. What’s she got to lose?
Such a cowardly act to claim you support the #MeToo movement when you don’t have the cajones to hold those responsible for their “inappropriate” acts.
Just another sympathy/attention-seeking actress who allows inappropriate behaviors to continue while not being wholly committed to the true victims of the #MeToo movement.
From Daily Mail: Sarah Jessica Parker says she once told producers she would leave the set to end the ‘uncomfortable’ and ‘inappropriate’ sexually-charged behavior of a powerful actor.
The Sex and The City actress, 54, recalled her experience as part of a larger discussion in wake of the #MeToo movement during an interview on NPR’s Fresh Air on Thursday.
She didn’t reveal which film or TV project she was working on when the incident occurred, but said her agent bought her a one way ticket to get out of the city where she was filming in the event the situation didn’t improve.
Parker is most famous for her role as Carrie Bradshaw which she starred in from 1998 until 2004 alongside Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis.
And despite her star status on one of TV’s hottest shows of the era, screen star Sarah said she could still feel a sense of gender imbalance on some of the projects she worked on.
‘I think no matter how evolved or how modern I thought I was … I didn’t feel entirely in a position – no matter what my role was on set – I didn’t feel as powerful as the man who was behaving inappropriately,’ she explained.
She added: ‘It strikes me as just stunning to say out loud, because there were plenty of occasions where it was happening and I was in a different position and I was as powerful. I mean, I had every right to say, “This is inappropriate.” I could have felt safe in going to a superior.’
Parker said that in one instance, she had her agent let producers know she was going to leave production and not return if she continued to feel ‘uncomfortable’ by the movie star.
‘And, in fact, I will say, when there was a situation with somebody and I did go to my agent. I felt I was no longer able to convey how uncomfortable this was making me, how inappropriate it was,’ she said, adding that ‘within hours, everything had changed.’
Parker said her agent made clear that she would quit the production if the conduct was allowed to continue. ‘He said to them, “If this continues, I have sent her a ticket, a one-way ticket out of this city” – where I was shooting – “and she will not be returning.”‘
‘I didn’t have to listen to jokes about me or my figure or what people thought they could talk me into doing – you know, all these men, all these men,’ she continued. ‘That stopped.’
Parker added that it was clear the instigator of the harassment wasn’t ever going to change because he had seemingly been that way for a long time.’He was baked, meaning his personality; it was cooked,’ she said. ‘And he was a formed person, and that wasn’t going to change. But I felt certainly better and safer, like I could finish what I had agreed to do.’
Parker said she revisited what she had endured earlier in her career in wake of the #MeToo movement.
