Jane Fonda Is "Ashamed" She Didn't Speak Up About Harvey Weinstein Sooner

Jane Fonda Is

Arquette has since spoken about the alleged incident in interviews with The New Yorker and The New York Times Back in the early 90s, Arquette said, she was supposed to meet Weinstein for dinner at the Beverly Hills Hotel to pick up a script for an upcoming film. While Fonda told Amanpour it's "important" to expose someone's abuse, she said it's "a very, very, very, hard thing to do" because the people victimized don't "get anything out of it". "So what we need to start talking about is the crisis in masculinity, the crisis of extreme masculinity, which is this sort of behavior, and the fact that it is not OK", she added.

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

"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.

"It's not only sexual predation".

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.

"I only met Harvey when I was old", the actress added. He was just not a nice person.

She said she now regretted staying silent. She also said it wasn't unique to her industry. "I only met Harvey when I was old and Harvey goes for young because that's more vulnerable". "But let's not think that this is some unique, horrific - this goes on all the time".

It was the actress Rosanna Arquette who came to Fonda and told her about her experience with Weinstein. "In offices and businesses all over the world, in bars, and restaurants and 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", Fonda said.

Fonda's personal story about sexual misconduct involved a French director she worked with early in her career.

She turned him down, but got the part anyway. "You have to understand that you have control over your body and that you have to say no". If we all talked and told, then they'd all be afraid to do it, I think.
