Actress Emma Thompson tells of her horror after daughter Gaia, 18, was sexually assaulted on London Underground and how she even blamed HERSELF afterwards
Oscar winning actress Emma Thompson has spoken out after her teenage daughter was sexually assaulted on public transport. Gaia, then 17 (pictured with her mother on the left), was on the London Underground, when she was targeted by an abuser last year. Dame Emma Thompson said: ‘My daughter had the experience of being felt up on the Tube and felt very nervous about going out on the tube afterwards. She added women tended to blame themselves and that her daughter had been no exception. The 59-year old has been very vocal about sex abuse in Hollywood, she previously said behavior like Weinstein’s is ‘endemic to the system,’ and something she has experienced with ‘many’ other men in similar positions over the years.
