Jane Fonda: 'I wish I had spoken out about Harvey Weinstein earlier'

In an interview with CNN, actress Jane Fonda has admitted she learned of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct against women a year ago, and is "ashamed" she didn't speak up sooner.

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

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

Reps from both Pattinson and Twigs' camps have yet to react to the rumors about the end of their relationship. The whole thing with Rob saying they are "kind of engaged" speaks for itself.

Sallie Hofmeister, a spokesperson for Weinstein, responded in a statement that all "allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". "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. But Arquette is among the handful of actresses whose experiences with Weinstein were detailed in the New Yorker this week.

"It's a very, very, very, hard thing to do".

"I will admit that I should've been braver", the 79-year-old celebrity said.

When the host pressed the iconic star as to why she didn't say anything when she first heard about his allegedly abusive behavior, including rape, Fonda expressed regret.

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

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.

"This [harassment] goes on all the time", Fonda said. "I know that it has taken a long time", she said. It's this male entitlement in Hollywood and everywhere in offices and businesses all over the world, in bars, in restaurants, in stores. Fonda speculated that men may think, "our president does it, and he got elected even after people discovered that he was an abuser, so I'm just going to go ahead and do what I want to do". "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".
