Actress Eve Hewson, Bono’s Daughter, Reveals Reveals ‘MeToo’ Moment Of Sexual Harassment
Eve Hewson is the latest actress to reveal she has been a victim of some form of workplace misconduct.
The 27-year-old daughter of U2 frontman Bono said in a new interview that she has also been subjected to harassment while working in films, just as dozens of other women who were mistreated spoke out to launch what became known as the #MeToo movement.
Hewson, the star of the new movie Robin Hood, said hearing other female celebrities’ experiences with sexual harassment has helped her “look at situations [that] at the time I had sort of brushed off … I’ve been on set where crew members say things to you, whisper in your ear, follow you around,” she told Story + Rain magazine.
The actress recalled one specific moment in her career: “I had to do a sex scene once outside in a car, and like the policeman was there to help us film … He kept, like, walking into the shot and looking up my skirt. And after a while, I got out of the car and went up to him and said, ‘I know what you’re doing!’”
Hewson, who made her film debut in the 2011 drama This Must Be The Place, has since starred in Steven Spielberg‘s 2015 movie Bridge of Spies and Steven Soderbergh‘s short-lived Cinemax series The Knick. Her new film, a gritty adaptation of the classic tale Robin Hood, stars Taron Egerton in the lead role as well as Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn and Jamie Dornan. The film, directed by Otto Bathurst, was released on Wednesday and has since been panned by critics, with a 14 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
