Anna Paquin Supports Ellen Page's Story About Brett Ratner's Harassment: 'I Was There'

Anna Paquin is backing up Ellen Page‘s story about Brett Ratner.

Following Ellen‘s post about her experience with sexual harassment on the set of X-Men: The Last Stand, the 35-year-old True Blood actress spoke out on Twitter on Friday (November 10) to support Ellen.

“I was there when that comment was made. I stand with you .@EllenPage,” she wrote. “#truth #IStandWithYou.”

“If you can’t think of the glaringly obvious reason I remained silent then perhaps you’ve forgotten that I’ve been in this victim grooming industry since before I hit puberty,” she added.

    victim grooming industry? if you feel that’s what it is, why are you in the business?

  • rubie

    Yes, it is a Victim Grooming industry….my heart broke when I read and saw the deterioration of that child, Corey Haim, was so sad to see….The biz industry looks so glamorous on the outside but I would never , ever encourage a loved one to become an actor, singer or model….The money is not worth it, you sell a part of your soul, even the ones that weren’t abused in some way, no privacy, etc….I stand by these woman, they didn’t ask to be assaulted, demeaned, raped!! I applaud CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!! in every industry driven by men……………

  • Nurse Shadie

    Because she’s an actor first and the fulfillment she finds playing characters/telling stories is something that allows her and many others to overlook the negative side of the industry that its attached.

  • gradybridges

    how is your first response to blame the victims and not the predators in the industry?

  • 777

    It’s her/his response to every article that came out since the first story about Harvey Weinstein broke.

  • 777

    She also said that working with Woody Allen is the biggest regret of her career. It’s a nice change from what we are used to hear (or not hear at all in this case) about Woody Allen.

  • Amber

    Beautifully said.

  • tia maria

    What about the men who have been assaulted, demeaned or raped? It can happen to them too.

  • meme

    Now anna’s a victim too? I don’t blame the real victims. Women who were assaulted and/or raped.

  • meme

    So you’re her spokesperson now?

  • Ram

    so, whats their opinion on bryan singer?

  • Ram

    how does it feel to be so stupid, you don’t know you’re stupid?

  • GrobanWorld News

    Ellen didn’t defend working with Woody Allen. She regrets it. And she also criticized Roman Polanski. Which more than I can say about a lot of these other stars like Kate Winslet who seems to be fine working with Allen And Polanski while hypocritically criticizing Harvey Weinstein.

  • Vanity

    You were there & stand with her? Should have stood with her when it counted in the moment while it was happening. these celebs are the lowest common denominator.

    Ever hear of the word shock?

  • Phil the Donahue

    Because meme is an abuser. only abusers defend abusers. The response is so generic. People go into the business because of the art form not knowing that there are so many creeps. You hope it gets better, some leave when they can’t handle it anymore. Meme was abused as a child.

  • Phil the Donahue

    there are books that can help you. Try “They F*** you up” I get it though, you don’t get attention in real life so you have to push buttons and get attention here because, again, you were abused as a child.
