“It’s not helpful… I could single-in and talk about my experience, but I think it’s more important to talk about the entire movement as a whole,’ she told Variety.

She went on to hint that she too had been a victim of sexual misconduct in the past.

‘I’m one of hundreds of thousands of women in so many different industries that has a story,’ she said. You could ask anyone in this room and all of us could give you ten stories, I’m sure.

‘I think it’s just nice, the communication, and the fact that you asked this question at Sundance in a video suite, this never would have happened two years ago. So the fact that it’s a conversation and it’s a question is monumental, and I think that shouldn’t be looked past or looked over,’ she added.

‘We’ve all been through a lot of stuff, but at least we’re communicating and people are going to be held accountable.’    

In I Love You Daddy, Louis CK plays a successful television writer-producer, who tries to prevent his 17-year-old daughter (Moretz) from falling for a lecherous 68-year-old filmmaker, played by John Malkovich.
