Sarah Jessica Parker admitted she once had a coworker act inappropriately while on set.
Despite feeling uncomfortable about the behavior, Parker, 54, admitted she didn’t feel like she could do anything about it, according to a report published Monday by Page Six. Parker didn’t name the actor, but called him a “very big movie star.”
“I think no matter how evolved or how modern I thought I was…I didn’t feel entirely in a position — no matter what my role was on set — I didn’t feel as powerful as the man who was behaving inappropriately,” Parker said in an interview with NPR. “Which…strikes me as just stunning to say out loud, because there were plenty of occasions where it was happening and I was in a different position and I was as powerful.” (RELATED: Servers Protest Sarah Jessica Parker’s Gala To Raise Minimum Wage In Restaurants)
“I mean, I had every right to say, ‘This is inappropriate.’ I could have felt safe in going to a superior,” Parker added.
