Actress Angela Lansbury, best known for her role as Jessica Fletcher in the “Murder, She Wrote” TV drama series and as Mrs. Potts in Disney’s 1991 “Beauty and the Beast,” has a message for women in the midst of rising allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct in Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
Lansbury said women should take some of the blame.
The 92-year-old implied that sexual misconduct is a byproduct of women working to improve their physical appearance, particularly for those who aim to make themselves sexually appealing.
“We must sometimes take blame, women. I really do think that,” she said in an interview with Radio Times. “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.”
