Looking attractive has backfired: Angela Lansbury

IANS | London |

Amid sexual harassment charges in Hollywood, veteran actress Angela Lansbury has said women “must sometimes take the blame” in such circumstances, for trying to look attractive.

The 92-year-old has argued that making an effort to look attractive has ultimately “backfired” for women and it explains “where we are today”, reports

While commenting on sexual assault charges against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and others, Angela told Radio Times on Tuesday: “There are two sides to this coin.

“We have to own up to the fact that women, since time immemorial, have gone out of their way to make themselves attractive. And unfortunately it has backfired on us — and this is where we are today. We must sometimes take blame, women. I really do think that.”

“Although it’s awful to say we can’t make ourselves look as attractive as possible without being knocked down and raped. Should women be prepared for this? No, they shouldn’t have to be! There’s no excuse for that,” she said.
