Though she says she is "supportive of women" and acknowledged that "everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways," Lohan expressed dissent regarding the movement that has forced Hollywood and other industries to take sexual misconduct more seriously.
Lohan said that some women who come forward only do it for notoriety: “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 told the news paper she was adapting Tina Seskis’s The Honeymoon, which proved to be cathartic after a violent incident with her ex on a beach. “There was this moment where it was like, ‘I don’t really need to be worried about a guy hurting me, I don’t need to live in fear,'" she said.
“Because when women show fear, I feel like that makes us powerless," she said.
Last October the actor also defended Harvey Weinstein, the disgraced Hollywood mogul accused of sexual assault by dozens of women.
"I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don't think it's right what's going on," Lohan said in an Instagram story. "I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband."
