Natalie on Harassment Problem in Hollywood

By November 20, 2017Nat-news, News

 
We still don´t have a full video of Natalie’s conversation at the Vulture Festival, but the site has published a couple of articles about it, including several statements by Natalie about the problem of harassment in Hollywood. Here are some quotes:

“When I heard everything coming out, I was like, wow, I’m so lucky that I haven’t had this. And then, on reflection, I was like, okay, definitely never been assaulted, definitely not, but I’ve had discrimination or harassment on almost everything I’ve ever worked on in some way,” she said during Sunday’s candid talk at Vulture Festival L.A. The more she reexamined her experiences, other incidents come into sharp relief. “I went from thinking I don’t have a story to thinking, Oh wait, I have 100 stories. And I think a lot of people are having these reckonings with themselves, of things that we just took for granted as like, this is part of the process.”

For example, she says a producer once invited her to fly with him and his company on a private plane to a place she was also going. “I showed up and it was just the two of us, and one bed was made on the plane. Nothing happened, I was not assaulted. I said: ‘This doesn’t make me feel comfortable,’ and that was respected. But that was super not okay, you know? That was really unacceptable and manipulative and could have been — I was scared, you know? But just the fact of any woman, if you’re walking down the street alone at night, you feel scared, and I’m not sure guys know what that [feels like].”

    I can’t get over that a**hole telling Nat that she’s “exhausting”.

    I know this is late reply; You can tell Natalie works very hard, especially concerning her acting, and you can tell too she is a mature, caring, loving, and a beautiful looking lady as well, and I appreciate that about her. I know she must get tired and exhausted sometimes; she is a hard worker; I understand because I too feel the same way sometimes; I believe in working hard and putting as much effort as I can into everything I do, whether it’s singing gospel music, working at my job, or working for the church I belong too. If I ever hear anybody talking about Natalie in a disrespectful way I will certainly stand up for her. Thank you Natalie.
