Adelaide Kane Is Glad That All The Sexual Harassment Incidents Are Coming Out

At the end of 2017, there were many, many stories about sexual harassment and assault happening in Hollywood — and Adelaide Kane is not surprised one bit.

During her cover story with NKD mag, the former Reign star talked about the movement that she hopes will make Hollywood a better place and her own experience with it all.

“I’m ecstatic that it’s all coming out,” Adelaide says. “I think I speak for the majority of women when I say there have been times when I haven’t felt safe both in a public sphere or private sphere or a professional sphere, and I’m just really happy.”

She continues that each and every one of the stories coming out is “unacceptable, in any and all of its forms, that kind of abuse of power and it’s been going on in every profession under the sun.”

“I think it’s probably more prevalent and rampant in the entertainment industry because you have a lot of good looking, charismatic people, there’s a lot of money involved, there’s a lot of risk involved, and it’s a very difficult industry to get a toe-hole in and to work in.”

“A lot of people know or knew about more than they’re saying they did,” Adelaide adds and even remembers a time when she was “warned about having lunch with Harvey Weinstein when I moved to L.A.”

She says about the conversation happening, “I’m glad that it’s happening. I just wish we could have had this conversation 50 years ago. But it was a different world then, and it makes me very excited for the future of the industry that it can become a safe space for everybody.”
