Plenty more predators out there: Sarandon
There are plenty more Hollywood “predators” whose names are yet to be taken in public, says Oscarwinning actor Susan Sarandon, in the context of the sexual harassment and assault scandal that has erupted with an exposé on movie producer Harvey Weinstein.
Sarandon says that a friend of hers, who has been in the news for coming out about an abuser, told her that she was also taken advantage of by another Hollywood insider, but she doesn’t have the resilience to come forward again, according to nydailynews.com. “Some of the women who have come forward have had [faced assault by] other men, equally severe and [they] cannot go through it again,” says the actor. She adds that her female friend, who was drugged and abused, had no strength left to fight it out a second time.
