Jane Fonda Says She Is 'Ashamed' of Her Silence on Weinstein Allegations

Jane Fonda Says She Is 'Ashamed' of Her Silence on Weinstein Allegations

In front of the cameras of CNN International, the actress Jane Fonda speaks out on the scandal now affecting Hollywood: the accusations of sexual assault by the producer Harvey Weinstein on actresses over the past thirty years.

Asked why she didn't say anything, Fonda replied: "I was not that bold".

A series of women, including celebrities Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow, have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment allegations, while several actresses have alleged he raped them.

Sallie Hofmeister, a spokesperson for Weinstein, responded in a statement that all "allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

Apparently, sometime past year, Weinstein victim Rosanna Arquette confided in Miz Fonda about the sexual harassment she suffered through thanks to Harvey.

Jane Fonda is adding her name to the list of movie stars coming forward about Harvey Weinstein. But Arquette is among the handful of actresses whose experiences with Weinstein were detailed in the New Yorker this week. It is a very, very, very hard thing to do... "I guess it hadn't happened to me, so I didn't feel it was my place".

"I only met Harvey when was old, and Harvey goes for young because that's more vulnerable", she explained.

Fonda then turned her message toward Donald Trump, who has been accused by numerous women of sexual harassment.

Fonda told Amanpour that Weinstein's pattern of abuse is not an isolated phenomenon. I know that it has taken a long time. "This goes on all the time, this male entitlement in Hollywood and everywhere - in offices and businesses all over the world, in bars, in restaurants, in stores women are assaulted, abused, harassed", she said. "I should've been braver and I think that from now on I will be when I hear such stories", Fonda told a live audience, including several members of Britain's parliament, gathered for the interview.

"We have to start believing these women... and protecting them", she said.
