Dolly Parton backs the #MeToo movement but has some concerns

Dolly Parton backs the #MeToo movement but has some concerns, saying, 'we can’t turn it into saying all men are bad'.

Dolly explains,‘It was my daddy who taught me how to handle myself with men, to take responsibility for making sure I never got into a situation I couldn’t handle. If you’re a woman, you’ve got to be aware of yourself.’

Her father even gave her a gun to protect herself – and she reveals that she once fired it into the street to scare off a man who harassed her in New York – similar to a scene in her 1980 film "9 To 5".  

Dolly admits she’s exploited her looks to make her estimated $650 million fortune, playing up to the ‘dumb blonde’ image.

She adds: ‘I always understood guys would want to look at my boobs. I would say in a business meeting, “I’ll give you a minute to look at these but then I want you to listen to what I have to say because I’m here to make money for all of us.” ’
