Jane Fonda Therapy is key to overcoming past sexual abuse

In an interview with CNN, actress Jane Fonda has admitted she learned of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct against women previous year, and is "ashamed" she didn't speak up sooner.

The Oscar award winning actress said that she was never assaulted by the movie mogul.

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.

"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.

Fonda, 79, said that her friend and fellow actor, Rosanna Arquette, had recounted a troubling experience with Weinstein. "Because I guess it hadn't happened to me and so I didn't feel it was my place". "He made things very hard for me for years", she told the New Yorker.

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. "And Harvey goes for young, because that's more vulnerable".

She cautioned against characterizing Weinstein's years-long abuse as being "some unique, horrific" case, saying "this goes on all the time".

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.

"This [harassment] goes on all the time", Fonda said. It's this male entitlement in Hollywood and everywhere in offices and businesses all over the world, in bars, in restaurants, in stores. "And I think from now on, I will be when I hear such stories". "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".
