“Queen of All Media” Kris Aquino talked about her thoughts on sexual harassment in Philippine entertainment industry, following the case against Miramax executive Harvey Weinstein.
In an interview with PEP, she revealed that she has never experienced such, and said “Hindi ko na-experience. But, you have to remember, those formative years and when I entered the business, my mom was President. And, by the time na natapos yung term niya, na-establish ko na yung sarili ko.”
Kris shared her thoughts and said that in the Philippines women have more power compared to men. She said, “Can I be more honest? In this country, I feel it’s more of a problem sa lalaki in showbiz.”
She added, “I cannot speak for the others because I don’t know their experiences. But for most of the other girls—especially those I’ve gotten close to, even those who went through the talent searches and all—walang mga ganyang experience kasi may mga nanay na nakabantay. Kultura natin yung may ate, may tita, may mommy—yun talaga.”
