Thandie Newton: One Billion Rising Flash Mob in London!

Thandie Newton helps lead a flash mob for One Billion Rising on Thursday (February 14) in Parliament Square in London, England.

The 40-year-old actress helped raise her voice to protest violence against women.

“There was one horrific incident where I went back for a second audition,” Thandie told CNN about a time she was exploited as a teen. “The director asked me to sit with my legs apart; the camera was right positioned where it could see up my skirt.”

Thandie was then told to put her leg on the arm of the couch and think about making love. She learned years later that the director used the video to entertain crowds at parties.
