Jurnee Smollett Claims ‘Sexually Harassed On Every Movie Set

Controversial actor Jussie Smollett, who has been in legal battle for allegedly staging his own attack and lost his movie role on Empire, has one of his family members trending again for something nonetheless controversial.

Jussie Smollett’s sister Jurnee Smollett, reveals in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter that prior to her upcoming HBO series, Lovecraft Country, she has only been on one set where she was not sexually harassed.

The 33 year old is a renowned actress in Hollywood, she’s starred in multiple popular movies and it’s safe to say Jurnee has had a successful career in her field. She’s made cameos in  Eve’s BayouThe Great Debaters (2007), as well as Friday Night Lights and True Blood.

“I don’t know that I can confidently say that I worked on one job prior to Lovecraft — from the time I was 12 on — where I hadn’t been sexually harassed, whether it was by an [assistant director], a co-star, director, producer …” Jurnee said.

“Like, a guy saying before we’re about to do this love scene, ‘Hey, your tits are going to be hanging in the wind,’ is not OK,” she said, before revealing she had stepped away from a project because the misconduct was so bad. “And they let me out.”

“And I don’t apologize,” she said. “I’ll be like, ‘Listen, this fake-ass sexual harassment meeting that we’re having, I’m going to raise my hand now and let you guys know that the standards that they’re setting are bare minimum.'”
