Hollywood male actors support Weinstein victims, tell own sexual assault stories

Relating his personal experiences, and expressing support for the women who have spoken up about Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct, Van Der Beek, 40, said he'd been targeted older men as a young actor.

Van Der Beek's stunning revelation was made almost two days after another male star, Terry Crews, opened up on Twitter about how he was inappropriately grabbed by a "high-level Hollywood executive" in front of his wife.

"Also for anyone brushing off harassment as "boys being boys", Van Der Beek added.

Then he went in on Weinstein, saying what he is accused of is criminal, regardless of the industry, and he applauds everyone for speaking out. What he's admitted to is unacceptable - in any industry.

'I understand the unwarranted shame, powerlessness, and inability to blow the whistle, ' Van Der Beek tweeted. "There's a power dynamic that's impossible to overcome". You can read his three-part Twitter thread below.

Van Der Beek did not name the men who had touched him inappropriately.

'This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD, ' Crews wrote on Twitter. "Because this kind of thing happened to ME", he tweeted. "Jumping back I said, 'What are you doing?!' My wife saw everything [and] we looked at him like he was insane". 'My wife saw everything and we looked at him like he was insane. "He just grinned like a jerk", Terry added.

"240 lbs. Black Man stomps out Hollywood Honcho" would be the headline the next day".

"I let it go".

Crews shared his story because he wanted people to know that Weinstein "is not the only perpetrator".

The Weinstein scandal exploded after back-to-back reports by The New Yorker magazine and The New York Times detailed alleged sexual harassment by the producer spanning decades.

It has led to him being fired from the film company he founded and his wife leaving him.
