SAG Awards: William H Macy sees both sides of ‘Time’s Up’ movement

New Delhi: In a time, where allegations of sexual misconduct against men in Hollywood continue to pour in almost every day, actor William H. Macy feels that it has become “hard to be a man” these days.

Speaking before the reporters backstage at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards, the ‘Shameless’ star, who bagged the Actor for Outstanding Male Actor in a Comedy Series title, made his thoughts known on the ‘Time’s Up’ movement.

While his comments were not televised, his thoughts on the matter made it to the social media via a journalist who was present in the room.

Journalist Andrea Mandell tweeted Macy’s quote on her Twitter handle, which read, “It’s hard to be a man these days. I think a lot of feels like we’re under attack and feel like we need to apologise. Perhaps we do. Perhaps we are. But we’ll keep talking. We had a meeting, a bunch of guys got together under the auspices of Time’s Up. And that’s good for men. Men don’t talk enough and they don’t talk to other men. And we talked”.
Macy was not the only one to talk about this movement that has taken Hollywood by storm. ‘The Big Sick’ star Kumail Nanjiani offered his best advice for how men can help advance the movement.

“I think we have to listen, we have to support, we have to amplify. I think it’s time for us to sort of listen to the discussions that women are having and look at ourselves in the mirror and interrogate our own behaviours because a lot of times men are coming off in ways that they don’t understand are harmful”, noted Nanjiani.

Meanwhile, the star of ‘Call me by your Name’, Timothee Chalamet, feels that the ‘Time’s Up’ movement is resonating deeply with the people of his generation. (ANI)
