Eve Hewson Opens Up About Feminism & How the #MeToo Movement Impacts Her Life

Eve Hewson is on the cover of Story + Rain, out now.

Here’s what the 27-year-old Robin Hood actress had to say…

On feminism: “Some people just don’t like that word for whatever reason. I’m not afraid of it at all…equality. That’s how I see it anyway. That’s why I think if you are a nonfeminist, you are an a–hole because you don’t believe in equality for women.”

On landing her role in Robin Hood: “I had like a tripod that I put on top of my trashcan in my kitchen and I stood where the good lighting was and did a scene that didn’t make it into the movie.”

On how the #MeToo movement has impacted her: “I haven’t had anything really bad, but when all that stuff came out, it did make me look at situations at the time I had sort of brushed off. I’m over it and now I feel like I not only have the power to speak up but I need to speak up. I’ve been on set where crew members say things to you, whisper in your ear, follow you around. I had to do a sex scene once outside in a car and like the policeman was there to help us film. He had to be there. He kept like walking into the shot and looking up my skirt. And after a while I got out of the car and went up to him and said, I know what you’re doing, I see what you’re doing!”
