“I was tweeting a lot at the time [of the Harvey Weinstein accusations] and actually got an email from a well-known actor that said, ‘Calm down,’” Jessica said via People. “I found that heartbreaking and can only think he didn’t understand the movement that was happening.”

Jessica also recently told The Daily Beast that she has doesn’t worry about the backlash when it comes to speaking her mind.

“I’m going to speak my mind about any injustice that I see. I’m not afraid of anything in terms of that,” Jessica said. “And I think the greatest myth that an industry can create is to make people feel like they’re easily replaceable. I’m not going to allow that into my life.”

    Love her!!!!! These men are really all out here to protect each other at our expense and good for her for calling them out

  • greppinwolf

    Good.

  • cinemaniac

    I respect her for calling out Bryan Singer before he got fired or official accusation came out. This abuses all exist because of silence in Hollywood. So it is time to be not silent.

  • Notification

    Rumor has it that the actor is Matt Damon.

  • agus

    But the rumours has been for years and she still eorked with him. She called him only when it was safe, not before.

  • meme

    I like Jessica but name names or shut up.

  • FrenchGirl

    NO reason .She defended him.Matthew McConaughey is my guess.THey were together in INTerstellar and Mc c’s Gold is released by WEinstein

  • suzybel

    While we’re throwing accusations around, why don’t we name names too. A well known actor doesn’t cut it. Put up,or shut up.

  • Blair Waldorf

    In all fairness, she called out Singer while being a part of the new xmen movie, which he’s a big part of. It would’ve been easier for her to keep quiet until after that film came out, but she spoke out anyway.

  • Kim

    I agree. Otherwise untrue rumours about who it could be will appear more and more. Not only would it be unfair if the wrong person is being accused, but also by not revealing the name a famous male in the film industry is yet again protected and gets away with it x

  • Trixie

    I read it was McConaughey.

  • tom

    The guy was right calm down midget, tweeting is not gonna get you anywhere

  • mastema

    wait you mean tweets didnt #bringbackourgirls from africa?

  • mastema

    tweets are all ego-worshiping narcissists like a-list actors have the willpower to do.

  • mastema

    guy is not wrong, drop the emotions, and use logic to fight them. calm down. btw – i have gotten sexual harassers and abusers fired and have been abused myself so get those thoughts out of your heads, thanks.
