Dawson’s Creek star says he was groped and the victim of inappropriate sexual conversations, as he voices support of women who have spoken out against Harvey Weinstein
James Van Der Beek has revealed his own experiences of sexual harassment at the hands of ‘older, powerful men’ in Hollywood, as the allegations around Harvey Weinstein continue to engulf the film industry.
Van Der Beek made the claims on Twitter in a series of posts that offered support to the women who had spoken out against Weinstein. “For anyone judging the women who stayed silent, read this for perspective. Also for anyone brushing off harassment as ‘boys being boys’,” he wrote, linking to an article from fashion website The Cut that detailed a writer’s hotel-room experience with a ‘powerful man’.
