Saying no to sexual advances hurt Thandie's career
Los Angeles: Mission: Impossible 2 star Thandie Newton says her career suffered because she declined sexual advances of Hollywood producers.
Newton has featured in big projects such as Mission: Impossible 2, Crash and The Pursuit of Happyness. The Bafta-nominated star has extended her support to the #MeToo and Time's Up movements.
However, Newton feels she has been held back because she wouldn't sleep with people in powerful positions to get ahead in her career, reports metro.co.uk.
In the past, the star had claimed that she was once sexually abused by a casting director during her teens. She said that she found it difficult to move past, as she felt 'worthless' for a long time.
