Jennifer Aniston believes men accused of sexual harassment in #MeToo movement 'think every woman wants to sleep with me'
The 'Friends' actress said in order to ensure the better treatment of women, the 'power structures' of the entertainment industry need to change.
Jennifer Aniston, who stars in the new series, 'The Morning Show,' which tackles the issue of workplace harassment on a network, recently opened up about what she thought about the #MeToo movement and how narcissistic the men accused of sexual misconduct normally are.
The 'Friends' actress, 50, said she believed that most of the accused men in the nationwide campaign against sexual harassment just assumed that every woman wanted to sleep with them.
"There’s this absolute denial – 'It was consensual, it was consensual' – if you’re a narcissist to the degree a lot of these guys are. They think, of course, every woman wants to sleep with me," she told The Guardian.
She added that in order to ensure the better treatment of women, the "power structures" of the entertainment industry need to change.
"We have to change the power structures. Just the fact that she and I are producing our own material, and things are starting to get better in terms of equal gender [representation] in rooms of power, that’s going to prevent a lot of workplace misconduct," she said.
In a previous interview with the Telegraph, Jennifer had admitted that there were times when she had to put a happy face in public even though she was going through a lot professionally, and hence she could relate with her character in her new show, Mitch Kessler, who is fired after being accused of sexual misconduct.
"One of the challenges for [my] character is the trauma and turmoil going on in her private life, and the toll that that takes on her emotionally... Physically, mentally, versus the character that she is when she has to get up, put on a face and smile to America. I can relate to that. Of course, there are times when you don’t want anyone to see you, or you don’t want to be photographed or even go out of the house," she said.
