Lindsay Lohan has apologised for comments she made on the #MeToo movement.

Her comments last week sparked outrage amongst the public.

The actress told ‘The Times’ that she thought some women “look weak” when they share their stories of abuse or harassment.

She continued, saying others are simply sharing theirs solely ‘for attention”, she also admitted that she has never experienced sexual assault.

Following huge criticism for her comments, the ‘Parent Trap’ actress has now apologised for her words.

She told People, “I would like to unreservedly apologise for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview with The Times.”

“The quote solely related to my hope that a handful of false testimonies out of a tsunami of heroic voices do not serve to dilute the importance of the #MeToo movement, and all of us who champion it.”

“However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent. I’m sorry for any pain I may have caused.”

She continued, saying “I feel very strongly about the #MeToo movement and have the utmost respect and admiration for the women brave enough to come forward and speak out about their experiences. Their testimony has served to protect those who can’t speak, and give strength to those who have struggled to have their voices heard.”
