  • Jane Fonda Therapy is key to overcoming past sexual abuse

"But it's important that it come out", Fonda said of the many women who came forward for these articles, with allegations the Hollywood mega-producer sexually harassed and/or assaulted them over decades.

Jane Fonda was told of sexual harassment allegations surrounding Harvey Weinstein past year, the Hollywood actress has revealed.

"I was not that bold", Fonda replied. According to Arquette, Weinstein invited her to his hotel room to seemingly discuss a script, but forced her hand onto his crotch. When she arrived, she said, he was wearing a white bathrobe.

NEW: @Janefonda tells me: "I found out about [Harvey Weinstein] about a year ago".

When asked by Amanpour why she didn't speak out about the controversy sooner, Jane defended that as "it hadn't happened to [her]" she didn't "feel it was [her] place" to say anything.

Slamming Weinstein as a "predator", Fonda said sexual abuse was "hardly unique" in Hollywood as she revealed her own experiences of being propositioned by a director as a 21-year-old.

Sadly, Jane couldn't be more correct with her statement.

Interviewed by CNN International, the actress Jane Fonda is back on the case.

Fonda told Amanpour that Weinstein's pattern of abuse is not an isolated phenomenon.

Fonda, who said she didn't meet Weinstein until she "was old", made the comments to BBC just hours after speaking with CNN's Christiane Amanpour about the matter.

She turned him down, but got the part anyway.

Fonda admitted she had first heard about the allegations a year ago, but did not publicly speak out to protect his accusers' privacy.

Fonda, an Academy Award victor, spoke to Amanpour about her own past experiences with sexual harassment and abuse.

A long-time campaigner for women's rights, Fonda also sought to focus the spotlight beyond Hollywood, noting the similar accusations levelled at other public figures like US President Donald Trump and former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn. And what kind of a message does that say? "You have to understand that you have control over your body. if we all talked and told, they'd be too afraid to do it". "That counteracts a lot of the good that we're doing.it's unacceptable".
