Keira Knightley Reveals Upsetting Reality About Harassment Against Women

The 36-year-old actress just gave a new interview to Harper’s Bazaar UK and she said that every woman she knows has experienced harassment.

“It was when women started listing all the precautions they take when they walk home to make sure they’re safe, and I thought, I do every single one of them, and I don’t even think about it. It’s f—ing depressing,” Keira said in the interview.

The reporter who wrote the story for Harper’s Bazaar noted that she and Keira were followed by a “lone male stranger” while they walked around.

“I think it’s quite interesting talking about this while being chased around,” Keira said. “I love that politician who said there ought to be a curfew for men and men were outraged, and you think – but there’s a curfew for women and there always has been.”

When asked if she’s ever been harassed, Keira said, “Yes! I mean, everybody has. Literally, I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been, in some way, whether it’s being flashed at, or groped, or some guy saying they’re going to slit your throat, or punching you in the face, or whatever it is, everybody has.”

Earlier this year, Keira explained why she now refuses to film sex scenes with male directors.
