What is Debra Winger's net worth? Actress says #MeToo movement has gone 'ridiculously too far'
'Part of it is that I’m the mother of three young white males, so I’m looking at things that they’re experiencing,' she said
American actress Debra Winger, known for films like ‘An Officer and a Gentleman’, ‘Terms of Endearment’, and ‘Shadowlands’, has reportedly said that the #MeToo movement has “gone ridiculously too far in some ways.”
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, the actress, who is appearing in Apple TV+ series ‘Mr Corman’ alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, said she viewed the #MeToo movement at least partly through the eyes of her three grown-up sons. Winger and actor Timothy Hutton have a son, Noah Hutton. The marriage ended in divorce. In 1996 she married actor-director Arliss Howard. Together, they had another son Gideon Babe Ruth Howard. She is also stepmother to Sam Howard, Arliss's son from his prior marriage.
“I don’t feel like it’s settled yet. [The industry] is still in upheaval,” she said. “The plates are shifting. In some ways, it’s pulled ridiculously too far. Part of it is that I’m the mother of three young white males, so I’m looking at things that they’re experiencing, and things that my girlfriends of all different backgrounds are experiencing [and] it hasn’t quite found its steady point yet where there’s room for everybody.”
She said, “I'm a bad one to ask. I always found my way. Is that privilege? It didn’t feel like it at the time, because I felt like I was in very abusive situations, but it was my responsibility to buck up, get strong.”
Winger, now 66, shocked everyone when she decided to leave Hollywood at the age of 40. “I don’t know what Hollywood is. I’m living under the freaking sign now, and I just stare at it and laugh,” Winger said in a 2017 interview. “Los Angeles is a place, but the idea of Hollywood doesn’t really exist for me. Broadway is more of a family than Hollywood, although there must be some in-crowds that I just don’t know about.”
She said that her decision to leave the business had less to do with her professional life and more to do with her personal one. “The parts that were coming, I wasn’t interested in. I’d already done that or I’d already felt that. I needed to be challenged. My life challenged me more than the parts, so I dove into it fully,” she said then.
