Michelle Pfeiffer on Her #MeToo Moment at Age 20

The #MeToo movement was ushered in two years ago, and now actress Michelle Pfeiffer is addressing her own experience as a young woman in Hollywood.

During an interview with The Sunday Times, Pfeiffer addressed an “incident” that happened when she was 20.

“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,'” Pfeiffer told the newspaper of reexamining her experience in light of the movement.

“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.’ There were a number of situations that were not good.”

Pfeiffer went on to share that a “high-powered person” in Hollywood behaved inappropriately with her, though she didn’t share details about the alleged incident.

“Like one incident — I am not going to share — but I look back and I cringe,” Pfeiffer told the Times. “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 man isn’t named in the story, but interviewer Charlotte Edwardes writes that “if he’s still alive, [Pfeiffer] will write to him.”
