Now it’s time to lis­ten to Goldie Hawn’s ha­rass­ment sto­ries

Khaleej Times - City Times - - SKY FULL OF STARS -

GOLDIE HAWN SAYS her sto­ries of sex­ual ha­rass­ment will top them all.

In an in­ter­view to CNBC, Hawn, 72, said that sex­ual ha­rass­ment has ‘been there for­ever.’ “I had some hor­ri­ble ex­pe­ri­ences as a young dancer in New York City. I mean I’ll top all of them,” she said.

The star said that she was lucky that her cir­cum­stances were tem­pered by her up­bring­ing. “I had a very strong mom, a very strong dad and I had a lot of re­silience and I re­ally knew who I was, and you know the an­swer was al­ways no I’ll never get a job like that. A lot of girls don’t,” she said. Hawn said that one of the ‘at­tacks’ took place in ‘a dark room’ and she had ‘to wig­gle get your way out of it’. Although Hawn said that sex­ual ha­rass­ment in the in­dus­try stretched back decades, the ac­tress said that cur­rent events were due to an en­ti­tle­ment that is ‘par­tially an ill­ness’.
