James Van Der Beek recounts experience of being sexually harassed

James Van Der Beek reveals he was sexually assaulted 'Older powerful men grabbed my ass'

In the wake of numerous sexual misconduct claims against producer Harvey Weinstein, actor James Van Der Beek shared that he, too, has been "grabbed by older, powerful men" in Hollywood.

Van Der Beek added: "For anyone brushing off harassment as "boys being boys" ..."

The producer's spokesman has said Weinstein "unequivocally denied" non-consensual sex, and said there were never any acts of retaliation against any swomen for refusing his advances. What he's admitted to is unacceptable - in any industry.

He also applauded alleged victims for "speaking out" and went on to recall "inappropriate" encounters he had experienced personally.

He continued: 'I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness & inability to blow the whistle. There is a dynamic of power that seems impossible to overcome, " concludes the actor.

"I've had my ass grabbed by older, powerful men", the actor wrote.

'This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD, ' Crews wrote on Twitter.

"I let it go". But Harvey Weinstein is not the only perpetrator, ' he concluded.

"Hollywood is not the only business we're this happens, and to the casualties of this behavior - you are not alone".
