Keira Knightley Reveals She Was Sexually Assaulted 4 Times
Keira Knightley has revealed shocking details about four sexual assaults she’s experienced throughout her life.
She has praised the women who have come forward as part of the #MeToo movement, but revealed that none of her assaults actually occurred during her work in Hollywood - but in bars on nights out.
She told Variety: “I’m fortunate that I’ve never been sexually abused professionally or harassed on a film set, but in my personal life, when I’ve been in bars, I can count four times when I’ve been what I’d say was assaulted in a minor way.
“I think everyone has battled their fair share of monsters. “It’s not just actresses. It’s teachers; it’s lawyers.
“I’m not talking about rape, but I’m talking about the people who had been grabbed in pubs or their breasts had been fondled by somebody they didn’t know or they’d had someone shove a hand up their skirt.”
Interestingly, Knightley revealed she has only ever had “professional” encounters with disgraced Hollywood mogul, Harvey Weinstein when she worked on projects with him.
“He certainly never asked me for massages or anything like that,” she added.
