Good Life star Felicity Kendal has told women to stop the ‘hysteria’ over the MeToo movement.
The actress begged women to ‘keep calm’ and stop being ‘judgmental’, claiming there has never been total equality.
Kendal, 72, said: ‘The thing about the MeToo movement is it’s a bit like talking about feminism. There is no solution yet.
‘Let’s wait and see, because these things take a long time. If something changes very quickly, it’s not normally for the better.
‘Men and women are totally different. We’ve never been in a position in history where there has been total equality.
‘We’re human beings and we don’t get it right. Part of living is partly getting it wrong.’
Kendal, who played housewife Barbara Good in the Seventies sitcom, also said the MeToo movement still needs time to ‘grow.’
Speaking to the Daily Mail at Brasserie Zedel in Soho, she said: ‘But the problem is that everybody’s getting hysterical and they think: “Let’s tie everyone else up because they don’t agree with what I say.”

MeToo is a social media movement against sexual harassment which grew following a wave of allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.
Social activist Tarana Burke is credited with coining the phrase on MySpace in 2006 as park of a campaign to empower women of colour who had experienced sexual abuse.
But it took off as a hashtag in October last year, when Charmed actress Alyssa Milano encouraged its use in an attempt to draw attention to sexual assault.
