“Everybody goes through their own experiences in their own ways.”

She added: “a real thing for what is a police report.

Lindsay Lohan has already said to the People: “The appointment solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimony of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all who defend it.

“However, since then I have learned how to statements like mine are seen as hurtful, that was never my intention. I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused.

“I feel very strongly about the #MeToo movement and I have the greatest respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come and talk about their experiences.”
