She even woke up one night to see him filming her.

When they eventually called her in for a meeting telling her "we need to talk", she presumed the producers had finally made a decision to address her complaint. She thought they were finally going to address it one day, but instead they complained to her about something much different.

After months of enduring harassment, she was summoned by the producers. "They told me: "Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your lodge and the man of the household had picked it up".

Lively said she took the matter into her own hands and reported the harassment to her lawyer. He still ended up with a letter of recommendation after everything, according to the actress.

To name a few, Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne, Kate Beckinsale and Gwenyth Paltrow are among Harvey Weinstein accusers, whereas a TRL host and makeup artist have accused Ben Affleck (brother of Casey, who himself has settled multiple sexual misconduct suits) of groping them after he denounced Weinstein, Terry Crews and James Van Der Beek have talked being harassed by older Hollywood execs and now Blake Lively has stepped forward with disturbing details about a make up artist she worked with, who she alleges filmed her why she slept.

"Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation, because nobody wanted there to be bad blood", the actress told the paper.

Quentin Tarantino breaks silence on Harvey Weinstein allegations: 'I'm stunned and heartbroken'
She prefaced the tweet by saying she had a "long dinner with my friend Quentin Tarantino ", who asked her to share the comment. Weinstein and Tarantino have worked together since the former distributed the latter's 1992 breakout film Reservoir Dogs .


While Lively says she never personally experienced or witnessed Weinstein acting inappropriately, she called the various testimonies "devastating to hear". "That was never my experience with Harvey in any way whatsoever, and I think that if people heard these stories..."

She added, "It's important that women are furious right now".

The California native told her story after the New York Times and the New Yorker both published bombshell reports featuring countless women accusing Weinstein of sexual misconduct and rape.

In light of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, more and more women and men in Hollywood are discussing producers and people in power who harassed and manipulated them. "As important as it is to remain furious about this, it's important to also say that this exists everywhere so do not forget to look everywhere".
