said: "If you feel that you've been wronged, and you feel that you don't have the right to tell people about it and you feel that you're being bullied into silence, it's one of the most awful things in the world.

"So it's amazing when any kind of dam breaks and people feel they've got the numbers to say, no, you'll be safe to say whatever has happened to you. It's pretty amazing."

Pattinson's "Damsel" co-star said she had been in her native for much of the past year and therefore watching the movement roll-out from afar, but she recently got the opportunity to witness its impact firsthand.

"The Respect Rally in was the first thing I've been able to go to and be a part of it and that was really amazing to feel the there and the connectedness of the people. I think it's great and I think it's going to be really significant change," she said.
