Actress Lindsay Lohan told The Times of London that she thinks women who share their #MeToo stories "look weak", prompting a wave of criticism from readers online.

In a new interview with The Times, the 32-year-old actress gives her opinion on the movement against sexual harassment and assault, which is meant to highlight the issues' prevalence, especially in the workplace. Look, I am very supportive of women. Everyone goes through their own experiences in their own ways.

She argued that if something "happens at that moment" then it should be brought up at the same time or reported immediately. You make it a real thing by making it into a police report. Lohan trying to shame those who do come forward by calling them weak is more a reflection of her character than of those who come forward, but words are still hurtful.

Lindsay Lohan has talked about the sexual harassment issue in Hollywood before as well. "That is taking away from the fact that it happened". "The best revenge is success, right?"

In October of previous year, the actress caused a lot of controversy when she defended Harvey Weinstein!

Lohan also believes a lot of the #MeToo victims who speak up about their experiences are 'attention-seekers'.

Lohan also defended the now-disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein after several women accused him of sexual assault and rape in October.

She went on Instagram to let fans know that she supports Weinstein, saying, "I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now".

Lindsay continued: "I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband". I think everyone needs to stop.

The show will premiere in 2019 and follow The Parent Trap actress and the staff at her club in Mykonos.
