Sandra Bullock has become the latest in a long list of Hollywood stars to speak out as part of the Me Too and Times Up movement. 

The actress, whose big break came in the 90s action movie Speed, discussed how when she was just a teenager she lived through sexual harassment. 

The gravity star stated that when she was just 16, she experienced this issue but didn't tell anyone out of the fear that she would not be believed. 

Bullock donated $500,000 to the Time's Up movement. She recently discussed the current revolution and its positive impact for women around the world, not just in Hollywood. 

She said: “It’s easy to give money to people who are incredibly brave and outspoken.

“But Time’s Up is not just about the actors — it’s about the single mom who’s been abused, bullied, and sexually harassed and is just trying to make every day safe.

“I also love All Raise, which has partnered with Time’s Up to help close the gap on funding for women and minorities in technology."

She added that she can relate directly to the issues, because as previously stated, she experienced harassment as a teenager. She said that she didn't feel able to report this issue because of worries. 

She added: “It’s our duty to do whatever we can to help. I can safely say there is not one person I know who hasn’t experienced some form of [harassment] or doesn’t know someone [it’s happened to].

“It happened to me when I was 16. And you’re paralysed to a degree, thinking, ‘Will anyone believe me?’ And at that time? No.

“Up until recently it was the victim who was shamed, not the perpetrator.

“But just like with this [March For Our Lives], we can do peaceful protests and utilise the media. We’re raising our children to be fearless. At least I hope I’m raising my kids that way.”

Bullock also spoke about her adopted children Louis, eight, and Laila, five, saying: “Lou is supersensitive. I call him my 78-year-old son. He’s like Shecky Greene, a Jewish Catskills comic.

“He’s wise and kind. I saw that when they handed him to me. There was a spiritual bigness to him. I was like, ‘I hope I don’t eff that up.’

“And Laila is just unafraid. She’s a fighter, and that’s the reason she’s here today. She fought to keep her spirit intact.

“Oh my god, what she is going to accomplish. She’s going to bring some real change.”
