Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

MATT Smith has said the con­ver­sa­tion about sex­ual ha­rass­ment should ex­tend be­yond the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try.

The ac­tor, who re­turns along­side Claire Foy to star in Net­flix’s lav­ish drama The Crown, also said he had “been ob­jec­ti­fied by men”, adding “just like women are ob­jec­ti­fied”.

The 35-year-old, who was cat­a­pulted into the spot­light in Doc­tor Who, told the Tele­graph Mag­a­zine: “The con­ver­sa­tion shouldn’t stop at this in­dus­try just be­cause these are ‘celebri­ties’ who we know about who are in­volved. It has to be broader.
