Jane Fonda regrets not speaking up earlier about Harvey Weinstein. The film star, who is also an active women's rights advocate, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Thursday that she "found out about Harvey about a year ago." "I'm ashamed that I didn't say anything right then," Fonda said. The Oscar award winning actress said that she was never assaulted by the movie mogul. In the past week, multiple women have come forward accusing Weinstein of rape, assault and other misconduct.
The movie producer denies the charges and released a statement earlier this week, through a representative. "Mr. Weinstein obviously can't speak to anonymous allegations, but with respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual," the statement said. The stories revealed that Weinstein's actions were something of an open secret in Hollywood. Fonda, 79, said that her friend and fellow actor, Rosanna Arquette, had recounted a troubling experience with Weinstein.
Fonda declined to discuss what Arquette told her. But Arquette is among the handful of actresses whose experiences with Weinstein were detailed in the New Yorker this week. Arquette said she denied advances Weinstein made in a hotel room. "He made things very difficult for me for years," she told the New Yorker. When asked why Fonda didn't say anything publicly after she spoke with Arquette, Fonda said, "I guess it hadn't happened to me, and so I didn't feel that it was my place." Fonda, an Academy Award winner, spoke to Amanpour about her own past experiences with sexual harassment and abuse. She says she was abused as an 8-year-old child and explains why therapy was important for her recovery. "You realize what I'm feeling is ok because this person is sharing my pain," she said.

Compared to your treason that’s nothing.
Hey Jane, I see your lips moving but I hear nothing.
THIS is what your ashamed of, Jane???
That's ok, Jane. Hollyweird forgives all.
I’d guess Weinstein and Barbarella had a roll in the hay
A year ago?? Bull POOP. Even I knew decades
Ago. So did you.
“Play Ball” is just how things work, huh?
Stop embarrassing yourself, attention seeking weeotch.
I, hypocrite. Stench of hypocrisy. Not sure, but did she wear a pink pussy hat at a protest?
It’s ok, Jane.
You also knew about the Viet Cong too, and was their b*tch as well.
“Compared to your treason thats nothing.”
She said in the above article that she “heard about it about a year ago”. Ole Harvey has been playing his perverted game for over thirty years and that old hag aka Hanoi Jane found out about him only a year ago. Give me a break, sarc/..,
What a worthless POS
You had no problem, Jane, mouthing off in North Vietnam.
She knew he was a serial sexual assault predator and didn’t do or say anything. What a coward. Another lib coward and hypocrite.
She has a lot to be ashamed about.
If you are so ashamed, Jane, tell us about the other predators in Hollywood.
