This is a weird one. America Ferrera went to Cannes and found herself the victim of some creep’s harassment when he basically crawled up and under her gown:
This was her reaction:
Well, now she’s got a different reaction, and she seems to be okay with it. Honestly, she’s acting like it’s not a big deal and she’s taking it all in stride, and maybe it isn’t such a big deal but if that were me, I’d feel violated and pretty pissed off. But here’s what she told Vulture about it, via E!:
I don’t even know what happened! I feel something behind me, and there’s this guy under my dress, and then two guys drag him away!
[Laughing] Of all of the things I prepared myself for, that was not one of them.
If you’d asked me what my first experience at Cannes was going to be, I would not have imagined there would be dragons. I would not have imagined there would be, um, ankle biters on the carpet.
It felt like a crazy weird dream. It was like, I was at Cannes in my dream. I was on the red carpet and Cate Blanchett was next to me, and then some guy jumped under my dress!
The guy was Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk.
As for her “dragons” comment, Ms. Ferrera was there to promote the film How To Train Your Dragon 2.
So weird. The whole thing is so weird and so not okay. But that’s just MY reaction.
