Kelly Hawes has revealed she experienced ''inappropriate behaviour'' in the workplace.
Keeley Hawes was a victim of sexual harassment at work.
The 'Durrells' actress - who has son Myles, 17, with first husband Spencer McCallum and Maggie, 13, and Ralph, 11, with spouse Matthew Macfadyen - admitted she was on the receiving end of ''inappropriate behaviour'' from a man in power, though she didn't want to go into details and revealed she only told friends what had happened recently.
She said: ''I don't really want to go into it, but something happened to me - not on set but it was something to do with my work... and it was inappropriate behaviour from a man in power.''
A number of high-profile women have come forward to speak about their own experiences of sexual misconduct in recent months, and Keeley doesn't think anyone was surprised by the number of allegations directed at disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.
She said: ''I'm an actress from south west London and I mostly work on British TV and even I heard rumours about him. I think everybody knew.
''It's like the Jimmy Savile thing. For a long, long time, people had heard rumours about him and nothing was done. So it's another example of that really.''
The 42-year-old actress has been impressed by the work of the #MeToo movement but still thinks there's a long way to go in terms of equality and ending sexual harassment.
She told Red magazine: ''[The Golden Globes red carpet protest] was brilliant.... There's a long way to go but the idea of something like what's happening now happening six months ago would have been extraordinary.''
