“I’ve by no means labored with Harvey,” she mentioned, talking of Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused by greater than 90 ladies of sexual harassment, assault or rape. “I’ve had some experiences and, I’ve to say, since this has all come on the market actually hasn’t been one girl that I’ve talked to who hasn’t had an expertise. And it simply actually goes to point out you ways systemic the issue is.”
The star of “Homicide on the Orient Specific” added that with the flood of allegations has come an openness to speak about and share these sorts of traumatic experiences.
“I do know I am having conversations with ladies I’ve identified my entire life and we’ve got by no means mentioned this… and it’s popping out,” Pfeiffer mentioned.
The environment is altering in such a manner that Pfeiffer mentioned is making folks suppose twice.
“Oh, I think all men are thinking,” she laughed. “There’s a lot of reflection going on with men and women.” And she includes herself in that mix. “I was thinking myself, thinking back and thinking, well, you know, where’s that line between, ‘Oh I got hit on’ and ‘I was inappropriately [approached]’?'”
