Joanna Lumley has entered the debate on casual sexism, claiming modern women are “too sensitive”.
The ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star added that wolf whistling should be taken as a “compliment”.
“How can wolf whistling be offensive to women? It’s a compliment,” she told The Mirror.
The 70-year-old actress insists that women had become “sensitive flowers” who were offended by “everything”.
Speaking about her time modelling in the 60s, Joanna says she had to have thick skin to deal with comments aimed at her by photographers.
Meanwhile, we could be seeing Joanna back on the big screen as Patsy Stone after Jennifer Saunders revealed that a sequel to this year’s ‘Ab Fab’ movie is on the cards.
Jennifer said: “We’re doing it again, certainly. If people go and watch it, yes.”
Joanna added: “It is always fun to go back to those ridiculous people.”
