LAURENCE Fox says she will never go out with a woman under the age of 35 because they are “too awake” after her round of questions.
The 41-year-old actor also revealed that he had once dumped an ex-girlfriend because she liked a pro # MeToo ad made by the shaving firm Gillette.
This after Fox, who has two children with ex-wife Billie Piper, ran into an audience member on Question Time in a debate on Meghan Markle.
The actor called university professor Rachel Boyle a “racist” after calling him a “privileged white male”.
Now he has offered his views on “awakened” women under the age of 35 and on the #MeToo movement, which has highlighted sexual harassment in Hollywood.
Speaking with the Delingpod podcast, she said she no longer goes out with younger girls because they are “too awake” and many of them are “absolutely stupid”.
He said women under 35 are “prepared to believe they are victims”.
Fox later revealed that he broke up with an ex when he praised an advertisement for Gillette that highlighted “toxic masculinity”.
He said: “I don’t know how we ended up together. It was a very short relationship.
“We were walking down the road together and she was talking about how good Gillette’s advertising was. I just looked at it and said “Hi. I’m sorry, I can’t do it with you.”
Asked what his ex-girlfriend would think of him as he discusses their breakup in public, he said: “He’ll probably sit there and say, ‘See, I told you it was patriarchal. He is abusing me and I am offended. “”
It is unclear which former lover Fox is referring to.
Lewis’ star, son of actor James Fox and grandson of Edward Fox of Day of the Jackal, previously dated DJ Lilah Parsons, 31, television presenter Kirsty Gallcher, 43, and model Vogue Williams, 34.
He was married to singer and actress Doctor Who Billie Piper from 2007 to 2016.
Fox later turned to the #MeToo movement that started in 2017, when several actresses made allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein – he says the Hollywood mogul denies.
Since then, several high profile celebrities, including Kevin Spacey and James Franco, have been charged with misconduct.
Speaking of the movement, British actor Fox said: “We want less sexual harassment. But don’t make an enemy of men.

‘Race row’ by Fox’s Question Times
During the confrontation with Question Time, audience member Rachel Boyle accused Fox of being a “privileged white male” for a debate on Meghan Markle.
He insisted that the Duchess of Sussex was not forced to leave Britain because she was a mixed race, with Boyle accusing racism in Meghan’s media criticism.
Fox moaned and slammed his head on the table, claiming that Britain is “the most tolerant and adorable country in Europe”.
He added: “Oh my God. I can’t do without who I am, I was born that way, it’s an immutable feature: calling myself a privileged white male is being racist – you’re racist.”
