Lindsay Lohan Calls #MeToo Accusers ‘Attention-Seekers': ‘It Makes Them Look Weak’
Thursday, 9 August 2018 Lindsay Lohan has called #MeToo accusers “attention-seekers” and “weak” for speaking out about their experiences, especially when using trial by social media.
“If it happens at that moment, you discuss it at that moment,” Lohan told The Times. “You make it a real thing by making it a policereport. I’m 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. You have these girls who come out, who don’t even know who they are, who do it for the attention. That is taking away from the fact that it happened.”
She added, “I had a fight with my ex on this very beach. What did I do? Nothing. I just took over the beach. The best revenge is success, right?”

Last year, Lohan defended disgraced studio boss Harvey Weinstein in an Instagram video that was quickly deleted.
“Hi, it’s Lindsay Lohan. Hi. I’m in Dubai, I’m home,” she said in the Instagram Story. “I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on.”
Lohan said that when she was making 2013’s “The Canyons,” the script demanded that she gets naked for a scene. Director Paul Schrader, who wrote “Raging Bull” and “Taxi Driver” stripped off his clothes. Lohan “shrieked,” according to The Times, but then took off her clothes as well. A spokesperson for Schrader has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

But despite the moments like the one she described above, Lohan said she didn’t have a #MeToo moment herself.
“So, I don’t really have anything to say,” she said. “I can’t speak on something I didn’t live, right? Look, I am very supportive of women. Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways.”
