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

Speaking with Christiane Amanpour in an in-depth interview that's going out on CNN on Friday (October 13th), the 79 year old acting legend confessed that she knew about details of Weinstein's behaviour around a year ago - and is "ashamed" that she didn't come forward earlier.

"I'm hoping that with this coming out about Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and then (the man) who's now our president, that men will not feel they can get away with it", she said. She said she suspected it was because "I was old, and Harvey goes for young because that's more vulnerable".

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. It's very, very common, just as it is in every country of the world, in every aspect.in business, in government. "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. Jane Fonda also makes the parallel between the actions of Harvey Weinstein and actor Bill Cosby, but also those of Dominique Strauss-Kahn highlighting sexism in our overall society and a system that is not only linked to the middle of the film, an idea also evoked by the actress Florence Darel in the show Daily. "This goes on at the most horrendous high levels". "Let's not think that this is some unique, horrific... In bars, in restaurants, in stores, women are assaulted, abused, harassed and seen for just being sexual objects, there for a man's desire instead of as whole human beings".

"I'm ashamed that I didn't say anything right then", the Oscar victor said.

"I found out about [Harvey Weinstein] about a year ago".
