Actress and feminist Keira Knightley has spoken out in support of the #TimesIp movement and shared her own experience with sexual misconduct.
Speaking to Variety, Knightley revealed she has been sexually assaulted on four occasions.
"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," she said.
"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."
Knightley added: "For too long, you really did go, ‘Oh, this is just normal.’ It’s terrifying that was our response."
The 32-year-old actress is next set to star in the historical drama Colette about a legendary French novelist.
