There’s not an isolated ‘Harvey Weinstein’ in Hollywood: Priyanka Chopra

Los Angeles: Actor Priyanka Chopra has said that women are sexually harassed by powerful men in every part of the world.She added, people like Harvey Weinstein are not an anomaly to Hollywood.

The 35-year-old actor said that this behaviour was not the result of sexual gratification needs, but about having control over people, reported Marie Claire.


“It is not about sex, it is about power. About putting a woman in ‘her lane.’ For the longest time women have been told only one of us will survive. Only the best girl will get the job. But that just can’t be tolerated anymore,” Priyanka told Anne Fulewider in a discussion at 2017 Marie Claire Power Trip.

The “Quantico” star compared the film industrycto a “big boys’ club”, where women always live with the fear that one wrong move can cost them their career.

“In our business, if you don’t stroke someone’s ego, or network, you’re threatened that you’ll not get that movie. Or this ‘big boys club’ will get together and boycott you.

Priyanka added women have been told that femininity is a weakness since time immemorial and there cannot be a bigger myth.

Recently, many Hollywood stars such as Lupita Nyong’o, Lena Headey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne among others have accused Weinstein of sexually harassing them, with Rose McGowan claiming he raped her.
