Thandie Newtwon is feeling neglected by Hollywood after being put aside during the height of the Times Up movement.
Earlier this year, leading Hollywood women gathered forces to push the times up movement, a movement against sexual harassment and inequality in the work place.
Newton, however, is now claiming that she was left out and excluded despite her own personal struggles dealing with sexual abuse in the entertainment industry. “When Time’s Up was put together, to not be invited to be a part of it, was very, very painful,” the Westworld star told Australia’s Herald Sun.
She added, “It’s hard for me, as someone who has been talking about it for a long time. … It’s lonely.”
The actress then explained to The Daily Telegraph that she “wasn’t hot enough” or “mainstream enough” to be asked to join the now multi-million dollar Hollywood campaign.
Newtown claims that “even though I am having a renaissance in my career,” she was shunned because her name wasn’t thrown around this past award season.
Back in July 2016, Thandie opened up about being sexually abused by a casting director to W magazine, telling the publication: “I felt if there was one girl whose family was thinking about putting their child into show business, that would help them decide. That was all I cared about.”
Per the actress, it was a director during a callback that “had a camera shooting up my skirt and asked me to touch my tits and think about the guy making love to me in the scene.”
Turned out, the director was showing the tapes to his buddies during guys’ nights.
