Rita Moreno spoke out in support of the Time's Up movement on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday and shared her own #MeToo experience, accusing a former studio head of stalking her when she was young.
"It's more than an idea, it's something. It's a movement, and I'm really delighted about that because I had my experiences. Believe me," Moreno, 86, told ET's Nancy O'Dell. "I had people stalking me who were head of studios. I was very young...At a time when it was just par for the course, and he was the head of 20th Century Fox."
"Buddy Adler," Moreno alleged when asked, referring to E. Maurice "Buddy" Adler, who was the production head of Fox and, in 1958, received the Golden Globes' Cecil B. DeMille award. He died in 1960. "That wasn't the only thing. It was so rampant," she said.
Moreno claimed harassment was simply accepted at the time. "Nobody was going to do anything about it, not because they wouldn't necessarily believe but because nobody was going to let it be known that that sort of thing was going on. Big secret, except everybody knew."
Moreno walked the red carpet with Norman Lear and, though their series, Netflix's One Day at a Time, was not nominated for a Golden Globe this year, the two remained optimistic. "Getting up in the morning is an award," Lear joked.
