Vastavam web: Veteran actor Ian McKellen has said that while he condemns sexual harassment, he is troubled about people being “wrongly” accused of misconduct in the aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein expose.The 78-year-old actor, who denounced predatory behaviour, claimed female actors had used sex to get roles in the 1960s, News.com.au reported.Some of the would-be stars had written “DRR – directors’ rights respected – at the bottom of their photograph,” he said.

“In other words, if you give me a job, you can have sex with me,” McKellen said, adding that it was “commonplace”.”People have taken advantage of that and encouraged it and it absolutely will not do,” the “Lord of the Rings” star said.
