Lea Seydoux Calls Out 'Hypocrisy' in MeToo Movement

The James Bond girl accuses Hollywood stars of capitalizing on the MeToo movement and makes it clear that she's not impressed by those claiming to be victims.

AceShowbiz - James Bond actress Lea Seydoux slammed stars capitalising on the #MeToo movement.

The actress appears as Dr Madeleine Swann in the upcoming 007 film "No Time to Die", said she told Harper's Bazaar magazine she thinks several stars have taken advantage of the movement against sexual harassment and abuse.

Citing examples of people turning against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, as well as actor Kevin Spacey, director James Toback, and comedian Louis CK, when allegations were made against them, she said, "There is a lot of hypocrisy. Because people knew!"

"And they take advantage now to say 'Yes, I've been a victim,' and they become heroes," she explained. "Come on! A hero, for me, would forgive. We need forgiveness, right?"

Lea went on to suggest #MeToo and the similar Time's Up movement have made it "scary" for men working in Hollywood, and urged people to come together and support one another, regardless of gender.

"It's good to be a feminist. But we should be 'masculinist' too. And vice versa," the star mused. "Men should be feminists. We should support each other."

Daniel Craig's final James Bond movie, "No Time to Die", hits theatres in November 2020 - after being pushed from its April release date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
