Lindsay Lohan believes that women who publicly share past #metoo stories make themselves "look weak".

She did note, however, "I can't speak on something I don't live, right?"

The movement came to the fore previous year after the alleged sex crimes of Harvey Weinstein prompted women across the globe to bravely share their own harrowing experiences.

The idea that a woman has to make a police report at the time something happens is also harmful in the context of the Hollywood system, where it would be easy for a powerful man like Weinstein to blacklist an actress for making an accusation.

Actress Lindsay Lohan just stirred the controversy pot by claiming, in a new interview, that some #MeToo accusers are speaking out for the attention. "That is taking away from the fact that it happened".

"You have these girls who come out, who don't even know who they are, who do it for the attention", she said. Lohan continued: "I had a fight with my ex on this very beach".

During the interview, Lohan also doubted all those coming forward are doing it for the right reasons.

'I think Georgina needs to take a stand and be there for her husband, and he's never harmed me or done anything wrong to me.

When the list of allegations against Harvey Weinstein began to surface, Lohan stepped in to defend the producer and accused rapist.

Lohan pointed to a time when she and her ex-boyfriend, Egor Tarabasov, had a violent altercation on a Greek beach in 2016. I think everyone needs to stop.

Filming herself in her Dubai bathroom, Lindsay said: 'I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now, I don't think it's right what's going on'.
