Gossip Girl actress and mum-of-two Blake Lively is the latest celebrity to share a horrifying tale of sexual harassment in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
In an exclusive interview with the LA Times, the 30-year-old actress said she was regularly harassed by a makeup artist with whom she was working.
“He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” she said.
She said she once woke to him filming her as she slept.
"I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me," she said.
"I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do."
The actress said she reported the issue to the producers working on the project, but nothing was done. After three months of complaints, Lively believed they were finally taking her seriously when she was called to a meeting in her trailer.
"[They] said, 'We need to talk to you.' I thought, 'Well finally, they're going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day'.
"And they said, 'Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can't have this happen again.'"

Fed up, the actress sought the help of a lawyer, and after an investigation the makeup artist was removed from the project.
