William H. Macy has thoughts on Time’s Up.
The “Shameless” star spoke about the new initiative that aims to fight sexual harassment and assault in the workplace while backstage at the SAG Awards Sunday night.
“It's hard to be a man these days,” the actor told reporters.
“I think a lot of us feel like we're under attack and feel like we need to apologize. Perhaps we do. Perhaps we are. But we'll keep talking.”
Macy and wife Felicity Huffman recently hosted a meeting at their home for those interested in the movement.
“We had a meeting, a bunch of guys got together under the auspices of Time's Up,” he said.

“And that's good for men. Men don't talk enough, and they don't talk to other men. And we talked.”
The “Fargo” star also had advice for up-and-coming actors, which he called “really, really, really complicated.”
“On one hand, in what we do for a living, we’ve got to be free to speak the unspeakable and try things, so I hope it doesn’t throw a wet blanket on things, and I don’t believe it will because half of the business is women and they’re smart and they’re hip,” he said.
“I have two daughters, and I feel girls are ascendant, and I’m thrilled for them. It’s a good time to be a girl. And I’m proud of this business, because such things as safety in the workplace — I think that’s done. We’re not going back. It’s changed. It changed in an instant and it’s not going back.”
Macy, who won for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series, beat out Anthony Anderson (“black-ish”), Aziz Ansari (“Master of None”), Larry David (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Sean Hayes (“Will & Grace”) and Marc Maron (“GLOW”).
