Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News - BY JAMES DESBOROUGH

AC­TRESS Thandie New­ton yes­ter­day said her Hol­ly­wood ca­reer was dam­aged because she did not bed movie ex­ec­u­tives.

The Bri­tish star of US TV smash hit West­world be­lieves speaking out about preda­tory movie chiefs cost her big­ger roles.

Thandie, 46, told Sir­ius ra­dio in the US: “I didn’t re­alise un­til re­cently that it had af­fected my ca­reer.

“I know this from a num­ber of peo­ple, because if they wouldn’t give it up, they weren’t hired.

“As an ac­tor, not only are you avail­able to work­ing on the movie, you’re also po­ten­tially avail­able to what? Have an af­fair with? Ex­pe­ri­ence grop­ing?

“I had al­ready spo­ken out about how that’s not go­ing to fly with me, so it nar­rowed my op­tions.”
