Penn Badgley Clarifies Comments That He Had Been ‘molested’

“I think as an actor you can become an object of desire, which is something women are already accustomed to more or less around the world — I’ve definitely been, I mean I don’t want to sound sensationalist, but I’ve literally been molested — just in the literal sense of the word — by many people in the moment,” he said. “Because that’s what they do.”
    According to the article, Badgley also mentioned Terry Crews, who went public in October 2017 with allegations that a Hollywood executive had groped him at an industry event. Badgley told the outlet, “these things very much happen, you know.”
    Badgley currently stars on Lifetime’s television series “You,” in which he plays a bookstore employee who becomes obsessed with a customer.
