When Amanpour asked why she didn't speak up at the time, the actress said: "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". But Arquette is among the handful of actresses whose experiences with Weinstein were detailed in the New Yorker this week. "He made things very hard for me for years", she told the New Yorker. If it is not part of the victims " I was too old when I met Harvey Weinstein.

But Fonda is relieved the allegations against Weinstein are being exposed and she's proud of the courageous women who are coming forward.

"It's this male entitlement - in Hollywood, and everywhere. Women are assaulted, abused, harassed and seen for just being sexual objects that are for a man's desire instead of as whole human beings".

"You can do anything", he boasted.

"It's unacceptable and we can't ever forget that and we have to stand up to them".

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.
