Actress Joan Collins opened up about the cultural shift that took place after the #MeToo movement against sexual abuse and harassment where women came forward to talk about their experiences.

"Sadly, I think that now young men are suffering from being labelled toxically masculine because of this rise of anti-maleness," the 88-year-old actress told The New York Times on Thursday, ETCanada reported. "I believe that women are equal to men in every single way. Except physical strength."

"People say you didn’t burn your bra, you wear lipstick. So what? I’m very proud of being a woman," she referred to the Miss America protest where women burnt their bras and more feminine products like hairspray and makeup to show how oppressed they were.

Collins was asked if she would like to use more gender-neutral terms and the actress replied, "What’s wrong with actress? What’s wrong with mother? What’s wrong with woman? Girl? I don’t like having that word taken away."

The "Dynasty" star previously opened up about the #MeToo movement in December 2018 and shared her own experience. "It seems to me actresses who are saying, you know, ‘I went up to this producer and he took his d--k out and I froze,'" she said. "I mean, I’m sorry, you don’t freeze you go, ‘Stop that, I’m leaving.’ I just gave them a knee in the groin," she told The Guardian. "It’s hardly suffering. You just didn’t put up with it."

She further revealed how difficult it was for her to survive as a young actress in the industry at that time when "practically all the men were predators."

"They used to say female stars were finished at 27," she added. "But here I am after seven decades in the business to tell you a thing or two about how to survive the perils of the profession."

On the work front, Collins was featured in a comedy movie, "The Gentle Sex." She will be next seen in a musical movie, "Tomorrow Morning," which is currently under post-production. The movie is helmed by director Nick Winston and also stars Samantha Barks, Omid Djalili and Harriet Thorpe.

She will also appear in projects like "Glow & Darkness" and "Unforgettable."
