4 Tips on How to Avoid Sexual Harassment in Hollywood

HOW TO avoid sexual harassment in Hollywood.

It’s a tricky time.

The subject of sexual harassment in Hollywood is in the zeitgeist.

Big time.

So, how do you avoid unwanted advances?

First of all don’t wear a short skirt.

Sorry!

Terrible joke.

Of course you can wear a short skirt.

YOU CAN WEAR ANYTHING YOU WANT.

4 TIPS toward never having to say:

“ME TOO.”

#1: TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a friggin duck.

IF YOU’RE GETTING A CREEPY VIBE, WALK AWAY.

If you think that maybe… that last thing he said to you was inappropriate, IT WAS!

Be strong.

Stand up and head for the door.

#2: NO FOMO

Fear of missing out is what makes many of us accept things we wouldn’t normally.

If a voice in your head is telling you the only way to get this job is to compromise yourself, then likely – THERE IS NO JOB.

Remember that famous line from the movie, “ALL THAT JAZZ?”

“I slept with him and I still didn’t get the job.”

Sadly, this is usually the case.

Scumbags are NOT in the business of following through on their disgusting promises.

#3: MAKE CLEAR DECISIONS IN A CLEAR ENVIRONMENT

If you’re unsure about nudity in movies, figure that out at home…

BEFORE THE AUDITION.

Don’t go to a potentially awkward situation and wing it.

Plan ahead.  Think ahead.

#4: MEET AT AN OFFICE

Meetings should happen in a public place.

Period.

If there’s anything we’ve learned from Harvey Weinstein, it’s this:

DON’T MEET A PRODUCER IN A HOTEL ROOM OR IN A PRIVATE HOME.

If the production company insists that they don’t have the funds for an office, suggest a coffee shop.

It’s okay to say, “I’d feel more comfortable meeting at Starbucks.”

And lastly…

It is very difficult to put a positive spin on what all the victims of sexual harassment have had to go through.

But if we had to find one glimmer of hope, it would be this:

We believe that…

HOLLYWOOD IS ON A PATH TOWARD A BETTER AND MORE ENLIGHTENED TIME.

Stay strong, y’all.
