LINDSAY Lohan has criticised Hollywoodâs #MeToo movement, saying victims are looking for âattentionâ.
The actor turned MTV reality star, 32, also said she had never experienced sexual harassment in Hollywood. âI canât speak on something I didnât live, right?,â the Mean Girls star said.
Lohan claimed going public with sexual assault actually discredited victims.
âIf it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment,â Lohan said in the interview with The Times.
âYou make it a real thing by making it a police report.â
âIâm going to really hate myself for saying this, but I think by women speaking against all these things, it makes them look weak when they are very strong women.
âYou have these girls who come out, who donât even know who they are, who do it for the attention.
âThat is taking away from the fact that it happened.â
Lohan told The Times she was âvery supportive of womenâ but âcanât go along with the âattention-seekersâ or trial by social mediaâ.
Her comments were absolutely savaged on Twitter, where she was branded âappallingâ, âweakâ and âself-loathingâ.
Lohan is now based in Mykonos, where she runs Lohan Beach Club and is filming her yet-to-be-titled reality show for MTV.
The series is being produced by Bunim/Murray â the same production house behind Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
