Naomie shared that the anonymous actor slid his hand up her skirt while she was reading a role.

“What was so shocking was that the casting director was there and the director, and of course no one said anything because he was, he is, a huge star,” Naomie told The Mail in You magazine on Sunday.

And while she feels “lucky” that it was the only incident she experienced, she definitely doesn’t get it right.

“That was my only #MeToo incident, so I felt very lucky given how pervasive that behavior was,” Naomie said.

Fortunately, he believes that he has now seen a major change in the way these types of incidents are handled on sets.

“Now things have definitely changed: I was in a project in which there was a #MeToo incident and there were no doubts, [the perpetrator] it was immediately removed, “Naomie revealed.
