She added she's glad the accusations have come to light. In the last few days, actresses like Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie, and Gwyneth Paltrow have spoken on the record about times Weinstein allegedly sexually harassed them. Ever since the reports began unfolding, questions have been asked about who, exactly, was aware of Weinstein's allegedly lecherous behavior, and when.

Jane Fonda opened up about the multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations about Harvey Weinstein during CNNMoney on Thursday, October 12.

"I was not that bold", Fonda replied.

Fonda admitted she had first heard about the allegations a year ago, but did not publicly speak out to protect his accusers' privacy. "And Harvey goes for young, because that's more vulnerable".

She said she now regretted staying silent.

NEW: @Janefonda tells me: "I found out about [Harvey Weinstein] about a year ago". Arquette then left the room.

Fonda said that she did not condemn Weinstein sooner because she didn't feel it was her place, as the incident did not happen to her.

"It came as a shock and a great disappointment, this male entitlement", she told Amanpour.

Fonda told Amanpour that Weinstein's pattern of abuse is not an isolated phenomenon.

The well-known actress said she was told about Weinstein's abuse by one of his accusers, "Pulp Fiction" star Rosanna Arquette. I know that it has taken a long time.

"I got hired even though I didn't give him what he wanted", she recounted, noting she had nonetheless kept quiet about the proposition.

"He made things very hard for me for years", she said.

"We have to start believing these women... and protecting them", she said.

The actress, who rose to global prominence in the 1960s starring in films such as "Barefoot in the Park", and as an iconic figure in the anti-Vietnam War movement, revealed she had faced sexual harassment from an unnamed French director when she was aged 21.

"We have a man who is president who does these things".
