Blake Lively Says she was Sexually Harassed by Male Make-Up Artist

The revelations surrounding the acts of Harvey Weinstein have made other famous women want to reveal their stories, as well. Blake Lively previously revealed that she was never in such a situation when it comes to Weinstein and that she never heard stories accusing him, but she experienced sexual harassment in relation to another man.

While talking to the Los Angeles Times, Blake revealed that a makeup artist sexually harassed her and nothing was done, although she complained about the harassment. “He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” the actress said during her interview. “I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me. I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do,” she went on to add.

So, Blake claimed that although she complained about this man’s behavior to the producers, they took no action to stop him. “After three months of complaining, they called me into my trailer and said, ‘We need to talk to you.’ I thought, ‘Well finally, they’re going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day.’ And they said, ‘Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can’t have this happen again,’ ” the actress said.

Blake said she had nothing else to do than to call a lawyer because she couldn’t handle the situation anymore. That was the moment when the man was removed from the project and Blake no longer had to deal with him. However, the man did receive a recommendation letter. “Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood,” she said.

Although she shared this experience, Blake refused to reveal any details. She claimed that this is something that happens so commonly in all industries that women don’t even think it is assault. “This cannot happen, this should not happen, and it happens in every single industry,” she concluded.

Blake Lively Opens Up about Relationship with Ryan Reynolds

Famous actress Blake Lively decided to open up about how her life has been with her popular actor husband, Ryan Reynolds. Blake revealed that she loves her husband “most of the time.” Blake talked about her personal life in an interview with Glamour.

The star claimed during her interview that her husband is not always “truthful” when he sends funny tweets about their two children. Blake and Ryan are parents to son James, who is two years old, and daughter Ines, who is 10 months old.

“When he says ‘my daughter,’ he’s never, ever talking about her. Everything is a completely made-up scenario,” Blake explained. “He’ll run [the tweets] by me sometimes just to make me laugh. But oh, I’m so in love with him when he writes that stuff. I mean, I’m in love with him most of the time, but especially with that,” the actress said.

Well, fans should not worry at all about these statements, as there is nothing wrong in Blake and Ryan’s marriage. In fact, things are working perfectly well. “I said, ‘Most of the time,’ because if I say, ‘I’m so in love with him all the time,’ then you get that eye-rolling, ‘Oh, her life is so great, she’s so perfect.’ So, it’s, like, my defense mechanism,” the star explained.

Blake went on to say that there is no such thing as a perfect life and revealed that she commonly has anxiety before having an interview. “‘How is this person going to spin me?’ So when you read, ‘Oh, she’s got a perfect life,’ or ‘Her life is crumbling’ — they pick narratives for everyone. And the narratives stick,” she said.

However, given the way she talked about her marriage, it surely seems that things are working perfectly between her and Ryan. “In other relationships, if something came up, I would call my girlfriends or my sister, and say, ‘Hey, this is what he did — what should I do?’ Where with [Reynolds], we were friends for two years before we were ever dating,” the beautiful actress revealed. “And I treat him like my girlfriend. I’m like, ‘Hey, this happened. It upset me. This is how I feel. What do I do?’ And he does the same for me. He treats me like his best buddy,” she concluded.
