Pia Miller shares her own #MeToo experience

Pia Miller, 34, has shared her own #MeToo experience.

The former Home and Away star, who started modelling at age 14, recalled being involved in ‘inappropriate’ photo shoots as a teenager – however she didn’t realise what was happening at the time.

‘Thinking about it now, there were some moments that I can go, “That’s kind of questionable” but at the time, I was so young that things went over my head,’ she told 9Style on Tuesday.

She added: ‘I did have my mum and my managers and stuff there always having my back so I was never in any danger and I never felt threatened or anything like that.

‘Themes of photo shoots and such, looking back now, they were so inappropriate for a teen child. Provocative or sexualised, any air of that I think is really inappropriate.’

Years after her teenage modelling career ended, Pia is now a mother-of-two and one of Australia’s most famous TV actresses.

She has two sons: Lennox, 11, who she shares with ex-husband Brad Miller, and 15-year-old Isaiah, from another previous relationship.

She is engaged to film producer and macadamia milk entrepreneur Tyson Mullane.

The couple went public with their romance in February 2016, after they were seen holding hands on a Sydney beach.
