She explained: ‘I noticed there was an overnight difference when the #METOO movement was founded, and the Weinstein thing happened. There was a difference in how people spoke to me or awareness around it.’ 

Vanessa admitted that due to her sensitive nature and anxiety she wanted to be an actress as she ‘feels things very deeply’ and said her self-doubt can be painful. 

In 2017, sexual-abuse allegations against Weinstein went viral with the hashtag on social media after actress Alyssa Milano sparked the movement on Twitter.

At the time, she penned:, ‘If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote ‘Me too’ as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem’, leading to a number of high profile responses. 

Vanessa noted: ‘I noticed there was an overnight difference when the #METOO movement was founded, and the Weinstein thing happened’.
