"Do I want to flip burgers, or do I want to put up with someone not being appropriate with me? I chose the other side," she says.
It's been nearly five years since Lara Flynn Boyle did a public appearance, but the actress returned to the spotlight briefly this week at the 15th Annual LA County Walk to Defeat ALS.
Boyle, who was one of the few original "Twin Peaks" stars who didn't appear in the recent Showtime revival, sought out The Hollywood Reporter at the event and talked to the publication about why she attended and how she's experienced sexual harassment herself in the industry.
After talking about the "strength" of Mari Windsor, her friend of 12 years and pilates instructor, THR asked about the "status of her career."
"I love a call sheet. I go where a good call sheet takes me," she said, though she hasn't appeared in anything since the 2014 film "Lucky Dog."
She was then asked whether she was ever "mistreated" in her career, in light of the many allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein. "Oh, all the time. All the time! It happens all the time," she replied.
"I looked at it on two levels: Do I want to flip burgers, or do I want to put up with someone not being appropriate with me? I chose the other side," she said.
"It still stays with you. You still remember things that were not quite appropriate, but you move on and that's all you can do I guess," Boyle added. "I support all the actresses that have come forward."
The reporter also asked how she was feeling on a personal level. "I'm an actress, nothing is personal," she reportedly replied with a laugh. "It's all out in the open."
