Lindsay Lohan is catching some heat after making controversial comments about the #MeToo movement.
During an interview with British newspaper “The Times,” the 32-year-old actress was critical of the recent reckoning against sexual misconduct worldwide, suggesting women who tell stories of their experiences are fragile.
“I’m going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women,” she said in the profile published Saturday.
Despite recognizing that “everyone goes through their own experiences” and noting that she’s “supportive of women,” Lohan called people who come forward with allegations “attention-seekers.”
“You have these girls who come out, who don’t even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened,” she said.
The former child star doesn’t have any personal #MeToo stories, she said, but believes sexual misconduct should be immediately reported.
“If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment. You make it a real thing by making it a police report,” she said.
This is not the first time Lohan has commented on the #MeToo movement.
Last October, the “Parent Trap” star defended disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein after sexual misconduct allegations mounted against him.
