Actor Matthew Lawrence has opened up about his experience of sexual harassment in Hollywood during his Brotherly Love podcast, according to a report by Variety.

In the podcast, Lawrence, co-hosted by his brothers Joey and Andrew, talks about his refusal to engage with a director who asked him to take his clothes off during a meeting related to a Marvel project. Lawrence alleges that the director showed up in his robe and said he would be the next Marvel character if he complied. Lawrence further alleged that his agency ended up firing him because he left the hotel room.

#MeToo Movement a Positive Change, But More Support Needed for Men

During the podcast, Lawrence also praised the #MeToo movement as a very good thing. However, he argued that men have not received the same support as women when it comes to sharing their experiences with sexual harassment and abuse in the entertainment industry.

He said that not many men have come out to talk about this issue in the industry, as society is less ready to hear about it when it happens to men than when it happens to women.
