The 43-year-old actress revealed that she was groped by a "huge star" during an audition when she was in her 20s.

"I was in an audition and he put his hand up my skirt", said the Oscar nominee, without naming names. "What was so shocking about it was the casting director was there and the director, and of course no one said anything at all because he was - he is - such a huge star", theguardian.com quoted Harris as saying.

The James Bond star has been reticent about talking about her experiences in the film industry, but opened up to The Guardian newspaper about one bad experience she had with a famous actor when she was in her 20s.

Harris spoke with The Guardian in a candid interview about her various film roles and her upcoming part in Daniel Craig's final outing as James Bond in "No Time To Die". "Which is not necessarily true if you go to Oxbridge, as I've discovered", she said.

She recently told GQ Hype the movie has "massive, massive surprises that even had me like, 'Oh, wow!'" "I think there is the immediate assumption that you have a brain".

No Time To Die, which sees Daniel Craig return as the suave spy, is due to be released in the United Kingdom in April 2020.
