"Because of my strength, my great team, and because I had nothing to loose (sic) having no ambitions in the acting world, I walked away from it and recovered in a years time".

She went on to describe an on-set encounter with the director, who punished her and framed her as being "difficult" for turning down his advances.

"I became aware. that it is a universal thing that a director can touch and harass his actresses at will. Then we all got sent home", she wrote.

The pair reportedly had a contentious working relationship on the set of the film, but von Trier has since denied the sexual harassment allegations in an interview with Danish newspaper Jylannds Posten, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Falling in line with Björk's view that she "was framed as the hard one", Peter Aalbæk Jensen, who produced the film, also denied Björk's claims. "That woman was stronger than both Lars von Trier and me and our company together (sic)". In fact, the filming of Dancer in the Dark has remained famous for the conflicts which have erupted between the singer and the director.

But rumours about the troubled production circulated in the movie press. The artist said that she escaped to my friend's room.

Björk is standing by her story.

"It feels extremely hard to come out with something of this nature into the public, especially when immediately ridiculed by offenders", she said.

When she demanded that he stop, "he exploded and broke a chair in front of everyone on set", she said.

The director also allegedly "threatened to climb from his room´s balcony" over the Björk's room "in the middle of the night with a clear sexual intention, while his wife was in the room next door".

Bjork said she had been inspired to break the culture of silence around such abuse now because it "could make a change". "This matches beautifully [with] the Weinstein methods and bullying", she writes. "Not sure that is even possible".
