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.

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.

"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.

"I only met Harvey when was old, and Harvey goes for young because that's more vulnerable", she explained.

Fonda admitted she had first heard about the allegations a year ago, but did not publicly speak out to protect his accusers' privacy.

The latest auction saw the cost of new offshore wind fall by 50% compared to the first auction held in 2015 and resulted in over 3GW of new generation which could power 3.6 million homes.


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 is a very, very, very hard thing to do... "You realize what I'm feeling is ok because this person is sharing my pain", she said.

When pressed by Amanpour, Fonda said this sort of thing also happened to her in the past-though never perpetrated by Weinstein. "Let's not think that this is some unique, horrific..." I know that it has taken a long time.

"It's this male entitlement - in Hollywood and everywhere, in offices and businesses all over the world. 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".

She added that President Trump's election marked a setback for the effort to combat such behavior.

"You can do anything", he boasted. "You have to understand that you have control over your body. if we all talked and told, they'd be too afraid to do it". I mean, who are the women that he preyed on and preys on?
