Actor Brie Larson said women always live life 'on the defense'. The Room star said women need to be careful before interacting with strangers.
"I merely smiled at a TSA agent and he asked for my phone number. To live life as a woman is to live life on the defense," Larson tweeted.
The actress received criticism for the tweet, with one person replying, "OH NO! A guy asked for your number. You poor thing. Women be complaining they don't find a good guy, but complain when dudes ask for their number."
The star quickly responded writing back, "You do realize you're blaming me for a situation I did not ask to be in? A situation that made me uncomfortable?"
Larson continued, "I hope you take the time to learn more about the experience of women. It's real ly scary sometimes and you can make it better."
The Oscar winner also tweeted her support to all women who have been sexually harassed."As always, I stand with the brave survivors of sexual assault and harassment. It's not your fault. I believe you," she tweeted.
