Alyssa Milano reveals why she won’t speak about her #MeToo story

‘I have to be in a place where I’m ready’: Alyssa Milano reveals why she won’t publicly speak about her #MeToo story any time soon

She has been credited with popularising the #MeToo movement, having penned a Tweet in October 2017 that sparked the viral trend of women publicly detailing their experiences with sexual assault. 

But Alyssa Milano, 45, has made it clear that she won’t be divulging details of her own #MeToo story time soon.

Speaking to Insider about her private ordeal this Sunday, the Charmed actress said: ‘I still talk to my therapist about all of that.’

She insisted: ‘To tell something so personal, so hard, I think I have to be in a place where I’m ready for that and I’m not there.’

Despite this, Alyssa has been extremely vocal when outing sexual predators in Hollywood as part of the #MeToo campaign.

Speaking to Forbes magazine about the major catalyst for the movement, Alyssa explained: ‘It began as a response to what was going on in my industry exposing Harvey Weinstein.’

‘The narrative was focused on the predator, the abuser and specifically, the abusers in the entertainment industry, and I wanted to shift the focus to the survivor and to really highlight that this is an issue everywhere,’ she said.   

It comes amid controversy surrounding Alyssa’s new Netflix series Insatiable, a teen drama following the story of a girl named Patty who seeks revenge upon her bullies after losing weight during school holidays.

Critics have expressed their concerns about the message of the show, with many arguing the concept promotes fat-shaming and wrongly teaches young people that only thin people deserve love and popularity. 

Alyssa, who plays Patty’s mother in the series, defended the show amid the social media backlash, issuing a statement that read: ‘We are not shaming Patty. We are addressing (through comedy) the damage that occurs from fat shaming. I hope that clears it up.’  

Her statement was in response to another person who said the show was ‘disgusting’ and Alyssa should be ashamed because she is the ‘face of the women’s movement.’
