Blake Lively's Story of On-Set Sexual Harassment Will Anger You

Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow

Blake Lively has opened up about her history with sexual harassment on set and the difficulty she had getting anyone to act on her behalf when it was happening.

The makeup artist said inappropriate things to her, and she even caught him filming her while she was sleeping one night, Lively said.

Blake Lively, here with her husband Ryan Reynolds, said not much was done after she reported the sexual harassment.

In the fallout of the many allegations of sexual misconduct against movie producer Harvey Weinstein, actors ranging from James Van Der Beek to Tippi Hedren have shared their own stories of harassment in Hollywood.

" And they said, 'Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up". Thinking that her complaints were finally going to be addressed, she was told that the reason for the meeting wasn't the makeup artist, but that her dog had pooped in a trailer.

Blake says she told producers about the situation and they did nothing.

Qatar, France neck-and-neck for UNESCO chief
However, UNESCO does not observe the kind of rotation by world region which is used when choosing a UN secretary general. Arab countries have long wanted to lead the organization, but the Palestine issue has complicated the election.

We hate that this happened to Blake, but we commend the fact that she had the courage to speak out about her experience. The makeup artist was removed after an investigation was conducted.

Nevertheless, the "unit production manager wrote a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood", Lively said.

In a statement released to the Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, the 30-year-old joined the ranks of Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, and George Clooney in condemning Harvey Weinsten's actions. "That was never my experience with Harvey in any way whatsoever, and I think that if people heard these stories..."

"It's important that women are furious right now". I do believe in humanity enough to think that this wouldn't have just continued. It's important that there is an uprising. The producer was sacked from the Weinstein Company on Sunday after a damning New York Times expose detailing decades of abuse. How many more stories like this until men take us seriously?

The Weinstein scandal has revealed women (and men) in the business are still being harassed.
