Lily Allen reveals #MeToo movement ‘needs to make a bigger impact as no one is reacting’

Lily Allen has revealed she thinks the #MeToo movement needs to make a bigger impact. 

Speaking to Civilian magazine, the singer candidly expressed her thoughts on the matter, revealing that people were relaying shocking tales of sexual violence as if they were ‘sensational’ and ‘exceptional’ and failing to note that sexual assault against women is ‘happening all the time’.

Lily, 33, also noted that people failed to note the seriousness of those allegations, claiming: ‘No one seems to be reacting. It’s news, and then people move on. It’s an interesting time.’

LIly was adamant that people need to start realising the important of the #MeToo movement.  

‘Everyone is sort of a bit like, “Yeah, yeah, that happened, but what do you expect?” I think that’s the danger with the #MeToo movement.  

Lily continued: ‘That’s the issue, people want to talk about these things as if they are sensational and exceptional. They’re not! They’re happening to everyone all the f***ing time … 

‘Men especially just don’t want to believe it, you know, whether it has something to do with themselves or accountability, or I don’t know what it is – oh, to be a rich white man,’ she revealed.

The #MeToo movement stemmed from a plethora of sexual assault accusations against shamed movie mogul, Harvey Weinstein.

Last year, Lily recalled her film producer mother’s alleged encounter with disgraced Harvey, 14 years before he faced historic allegations of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse from more than 80 women

Talking to Australia’s Andrew Denton’s Interview, Lily reiterated Alison Owen’s claim that Weinstein pleasured himself as they attended a private screening of provocative 2003 drama In The Cut.

‘My mum’s worked quite closely with Harvey, she’s done several films with him, and once they were looking at working with a particular director, Jane Campion,’ she said.

‘She’d just done a film with Meg Ryan called In The Cut and it was the first time Meg had ever done nudity.

‘It was just my mum and Harvey in a screening room, and just when Meg Ryan was getting her clothes off she heard this grunting noise from behind her.

‘It was Harvey pleasuring himself, in a dark room, with my mum sitting in front of him.

‘She kept working with him. I guess that goes to show how powerful he was, that she didn’t feel like she could say anything.’

Owen, 58, whose film credits include Shaun of the Dead, Saving Mr. Banks and The Other Boleyn Girl, had previously recalled the alleged incident during an interview with BBC Radio 4’s PM in 2017.

‘I had a couple of experiences where he proved himself to be a bit of a sleazeball,’ she said. ‘That was no surprise – that was his reputation in the industry.

‘When we sat down to watch [In The Cut] it was soon apparent why he wanted to see it. Meg Ryan has a rock-solid “no nudity” clause in her movies and had never taken her clothes off until this film.

‘Harvey immediately started talking to the projectionist, asking him to move it on to get to the bit where she gets her t**s out…

‘His breath was getting shorter and shorter, he was ranting more and more and I wondered what was going on back there.’

She added: ‘It crossed my mind that he was masturbating. I wasn’t myself abused. If he was doing it, it was to Meg Ryan’s breasts. It made me feel certainly that he couldn’t care less what I thought about him.’

Meanwhile, in 2017 Lily revealed that she had been sexually harassed, and indicated that she is taking action against her tormentor.

Speaking in a podcast, and referring to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Lily – who is currently dating MC Meridian Dan – said: ‘I’ve been harassed. I can’t talk too much for legal reasons but I’m in the process of dealing with something.’
