Michael Douglas is once again throwing his full support behind the #MeToo movement.
During a Produced By Conference conversation with Danny DeVito on Saturday, the “Basic Instinct” actor said that the movement has brought about a significant change in Hollywood.
“This Me Too movement has been phenomenal in bringing women into our industry more than ever before,” Douglas said. “I think it’s also time to be kind to each other. We know there have been some mistakes by a lot of people or some people, but I don’t think it’s a large population. I do feel that it’s important to remember we all mutually love this process and to be kind to each other.”
In Jan. 2018, Douglas was accused of harassing and masturbating in front of author Susan Braudy, who was employed by the actor.
Douglas made the claims known publicly and continued to deny them when she went on “The Today Show”.
DeVito briefly brought up the allegations, adding that “being open” with the people they work with is essential. The two star together on “The Kominsky Method”.
He also referred to “atrocious” behaviour by executives but did not add any further details.
Douglas has previously stated his support for #MeToo. After the allegations, he said, ”I support the #metoo movement with all my heart. I have always supported women along the way.”
