You star Victoria Pedretti has called out a ‘well known actor’ who she says made a disgusting comment about her body.
The actor, who turned 28 last week, took to Instagram to slam the ‘audacity’ of the man who made the inappropriate remark to her last year. You can see her talk about the actor here:
In the post, which has since been removed, Victoria shared a nude shot of herself with her hand covering her boobs, while saying it was a ‘joke’ to believe that being modest about her body would offer her any protection against similar vile incidents.
She wrote: “Wft is ‘partial’ nudity? Happy birthday to me [middle finger emoji].
“On my bday last year a ‘well known’ actor walked up to me at a party and said, ‘I’ve jacked off to you so many times.’
"I was shocked by the audacity. This is AFTER he expressed how much he RESPECTED me as an actor lol.
“Sometimes I enjoy modesty, sometimes I don’t. It’s a joke to think that my own modesty will protect me from any disrespect I may experience as a femme body.
“Also shout out to my body. I love you. You’re mine.”
Although the post was swiftly removed, a screenshot was shared on Twitter where fans threw their support behind Victoria, with one person writing: “That’s absolutely disgusting and degrading, like, is she supposed to think of that as a compliment?
"Bc saying something like that is just sooo out of pocket and weird.”
Another said: “Why would anyone think that's an appropriate thing to say to a person?”
While a third commented: “Why would someone say something like that… gross.”
Although Victoria didn’t name the star in her post, in an update on her Instagram Stories she told her followers that she had spoken to the man about his vile actions.
“Trust me, I told this person if I ever hear anything else in regards to him, like, then we have an issue,” she told her followers.
“But I can handle it. I don’t need his career ruined because he said something really f***ing dumb.”
She went on to say that prior to posting she had been reflecting on the ‘wild’ incident, adding that ‘no matter what you do people are going to say terrible things and they’re going to be weird about the way they feel entitled to talk about women’.
