Jane Fonda Admits She Knew About The Harvey Weinstein Rumors

"You don't get anything out of it as the person who has been victimized, but it's important that it came out", she said.

She says that she first found out about Weinstein's behaviours via Rosanna Arquette, who later detailed an incident of sexual assault in the Nineties by the producer in the explosive New York Times report that was published last week.

"Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual", the statement said. "I was in a fight-or-flight moment", she told The New Yorker.

At the time, Fonda said she "didn't feel it was my place" to go public with Arquette's story.

Sexual harassment isn't just a problem Hollywood is now trying to come to terms with - it's "epidemic", one award-winning actress told CNBC.

She revealed that she has only ever encountered Weinstein once, but she didn't feel uncomfortable around him - possibly because of her age at that point.

"Well, it didn't happen to me ..." she said.

In March, Fonda shared how she was raped and sexually abused as a child.

When pressed by Amanpour, Fonda said this sort of thing also happened to her in the past-though never perpetrated by Weinstein.

She cautioned against characterizing Weinstein's years-long abuse as being "some unique, horrific" case, saying "this goes on all the time".

When asked by Amanpour why she decided not to speak out, despite the fact she's seen as such a "bold" woman in Hollywood, the actress admitted: 'I was not that bold. "He wanted me to sleep with him".

"We have to stand up to them", Fonda added.

In recent days, famous movie stars such as Ryan Gosling, Emma Thompson, Brie Larson and Tom Hanks have spoken out in support of those who have been affected by the sexual harassment scandal now encircling producer Harvey Weinstein.

"I mean Donald Trump is - we have a man who is president who does these things". "What kind of a message does that say?"
