American actor and producer Michelle Pfeiffer recently reflected on her #MeToo story with an incident that took place early in career when she was starting out as a 20-year old. Pfeiffer said that she once had an “inappropriate” moment which was one among many with a “high powered” person in the industry. The veteran actor also confessed that like every woman, she too went through a process of “self-blame”. Earlier in the wave of #MeToo movement, she thought that her experience was not anything of that sort.
“First, I thought, Well, I didn't experience that, but then as time went on I started going, Well, actually, there was that one time. There's that process you go through - denial, self-blame, I shouldn't have worn that dress, I should've known. You look at it through a grown-up lens and think, wow, I was a kid,” she told an international magazine.
Pfeiffer further recalled that there were many experiences in her career which were not good. There are some which she said she will not share with the public however, she cringes each time the thought comes to her mind. The 61-year-old actor did not share any names related to the incident, however, she mentioned that it made her feel uncomfortable and therefore has locked it out of her memory.
She said, "There were a number of situations that were not good. Like one incident - I am not going to share - but I look back and I cringe. I was really uncomfortable and it was inappropriate. I put it in a drawer. I was 20, and it was with a high-powered person in the industry “.
The Maleficent: Mistress of Evil actor also said that she would have written to the 'high-powered' man of the industry in the wake of #MeToo, only if he was alive. Similar allegations and experiences have been shared by other Hollywood stars including Naomie Harris and Sarah Jessica Parker.
