The former teen icon star of 'Sixteen Candles' and 'The Breakfast Club' has opened up about how a film director "stuck his tongue in my mouth" when she was only 14-years-old.
Writing in the new edition of The New Yorker magazine about the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal, Molly has decided to drop the shocking news about her own personal experiences of being both sexually assaulted and sexually harassed on film sets.
Molly claims a married film director "stuck his tongue in my mouth”.
"When I was 14, a married film director stuck his tongue in my mouth on set. At a time when I was trying to figure out what it meant to become a sexually viable young woman, at every turn some older guy tried to help speed up the process," she writes.
Molly has also told how when she just 13-years-old an older film crew member pressed up against her with an erection.
"When I was 13, a 50-year-old crew member told me that he would teach me to dance, and then proceeded to push against me with an erection," she recalls.
She continues: "We all seem to have a Harvey story, each one a little different but with essentially the same nauseating pattern and theme. Women were bullied, cajoled, manipulated, and worse, and then punished.
“While my own Harvey story may be different, I have had plenty of Harveys of my own over the years, enough to feel a sickening shock of recognition."
She also writes: “At a time when I was trying to figure out what it meant to become a sexually viable young woman, at every turn some older guy tried to help speed up the process.
“I never talked about these things publicly because, as a woman, it has always felt like I may as well have been talking about the weather.
"Stories like these have never been taken seriously. Women are shamed, told they are uptight, nasty, bitter, can’t take a joke, are too sensitive. And the men? Well, if they’re lucky, they might get elected President.”
Some have argued that in the wake of various recent international sexual harassment scandals, flirting is in danger of being done away with. Not so, says our columnist.Read More
