Sean Penn criticises #MeToo movement: 'I know some lies have been told. I'm talking about women towards men'

Article here. Excerpt:

'Sean Penn has criticised the #MeToo movement stating the belief that it was “led by mania”.

The Oscar-winning actor, referencing the social media demonstration which supported victims of sexual harassment in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, told The Guardian Weekend magazine he didn’t feel the movement to be “intellectually honest”.

"I don’t ever want to be in a movement. I don’t trust any movement,” he said, adding: “The anti-war movement did not sustain,” Penn said. “We’re back in wars.”

He added that #MeToo was filled with “self-aggrandisement and venting” before leaping to the defence of US newsreader Charlie Rose who was fired from CBS show This Morning last year after being accused of misconduct in the workplace.'
