In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, the actor admitted that he had been sexually harassed and did not know a single woman he had not been subjected to.

“I mean, everyone did. Literally, I don’t know anyone who isn’t in one way or another, be it a flash or groping, or some guy said he’s going to slit your throat, or hit you in the face, or whatever, everyone has, ”Keira explained.

And, despite the fact that in her daily life she often faced misogyny, Kira says that for a long time she viewed it as something that she just had to deal with.

“That was when women started listing all the precautions they take when they go home to make sure they are safe, and I thought: I do every one of them and I don’t even think about it… This is damn depressing, ”said Kira.

As a prime example of her comments, Kira and the reporter mentioned that they were followed most of the interviews by a single man.

“I like the politician who said that there should be a curfew for men, and the men were outraged, and you think – but there is a curfew for women, and there has always been,” Keira concluded.

“I have no absolute prohibition [on filming sex scenes]but I like men. This is partly vanity, as well as a masculine gaze … I don’t want it to be those horrible sex scenes where you are all oiled and everyone grunts … I’m very uncomfortable trying to portray a masculine gaze right now, “Keira explained
