"I know that sounds glib and I don't mean for it to, because I've had to deal with it myself," Chenoweth tells TooFab.
Kristin Chenoweth doesn't consider the sexual harassment allegations that have been flooding Hollywood for the past several months to be "news."
"I've dealt with my own crap as a woman in Hollywood and Broadway. But I think women everywhere, no matter what business you're in and this is not old news, this is old school," the actress told TooFab at the TrevorLive LA red carpet on Sunday. "This has been going on for a long time so whatever we have to do to keep the reminder out there that 'Hello, we're people, you know? We're women and we're strong.'"
"But this to me is not news," Chenoweth said. "I know that sounds glib and I don't mean for it to, because I've had to deal with it myself, but women that feel the need to speak out, I say go for it."
The "Wicked" star, however, did not elaborate on the "crap" that she faced throughout her career.
"13 Reasons Why" actor Wilson Cruz, who also attended the event dedicated to suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth, told TooFab he hopes sexual harassment continues to be discussed as an issue so that our society can fully learn its lesson.
"I hope we don't move on from it. I hope this is a moment in which there is a reckoning, and we learn the lessons from that reckoning, and that we change," he said. "I think it is a moment for us to reflect on how women are treated in this society ... and I hope that when we come out of this, people think twice abut how they treat other people, especially women."
