Anna Faris has opened up about her own sexual harassment story.
Speaking on her Unqualified podcast, the actress and author revealed she was harassed by a director a movie set.
“I was doing a scene where I was on a ladder and I was supposed to be taking books off a shelf and he slapped my ass in front of the crew so hard,” the Mom star said. “And all I could do was giggle.”
She continued, “I remember looking around and I remember seeing the crew members being like, ‘Wait, what are you going to do about that? That seemed weird.’ And that’s how I dismissed it. I was like, ‘Well, this isn’t a thing. Like, it’s not that big of a deal. Buck up, Faris. Like, just giggle.’ But it made me feel small. He wouldn’t have done that to the lead male.”
The Unqualified also revealed that the director said she landed the role because of her 'great legs'.
“I remember that same director telling my agent, who told me, that I had great legs and that was one of the reasons that I got hired,” she said “And listen, that’s a f***ing great compliment. I like my legs. But that sort of informed my whole experience with that whole project. I don’t think the male lead got hired because he had great legs. Therefore I felt like I’m hired because of these elements — not because of [talent].”
