Last week, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star broke her silence and spoke openly about – the creator of the 1990s sci-fi series, 58 – Joss Whedon’s ‘extremely toxic’ set that pitted women against each other.
This comes more than a year after her costar Charisma Carpenter, 52, accused the creator of ‘hostile and toxic behavior’.
Gellar claimed women ‘pitted against each other’ during that time.

She also added that female friendships were highly discouraged because they were too ‘powerful’.
She said that over the years she has had to unlearn that it is not normal for film sets to be so toxic and rampant with misogyny however common it may be.
‘For so long, I was on a set that I think was known for being an extremely toxic male set,’ she said.
‘And so that was ingrained in my head that that was what all sets were like, and that women were pitted against each other – that if women became friends, then we became too powerful, so you had to keep that down,’ she said.
‘Now that I’ve had this opportunity to work with so many more women and men that support women as well, I realized how easy an experience it can be.’
She continued, ‘But… unfortunately we’re still in that place where all of those departments a lot of times need to be women for us to have a voice.’
