Plenty more preda­tors out there: Saran­don

Hindustan Times (Gurgaon) - City - - ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
