"I found out about him about a year ago", Fonda told BBC, "and I wish that I had spoken out". "I guess it hadn't happened to me, so I didn't feel it was my place".

Apparently, sometime previous year, Weinstein victim Rosanna Arquette confided in Miz Fonda about the sexual harassment she suffered through thanks to Harvey.

Fonda added: "I didn't say anything, I did laugh".

Jane Fonda, the two-time Academy Award winning actress, yesterday said she knew of the accusations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and "should've been braver" in voicing the claims.

"I didn't realize that", she said, "but I believe that it's, apparently it was so common that everybody must have known, and of course these kind of men, it's not only sexual predation, these tend to be men who treat other people not well". It's a very, very, very, hard thing to do.

She added that President Trump's election marked a setback for the effort to combat such behavior. "You don't get anything out of it as the person who has been victimized, but it is important that it comes out". "Although he could be nice when he needed to", she said.

She goes on to slam the double standards in Hollywood and the everyday situations faced by women across the globe.

"But let's not think that this is some unique, horrific - this goes on all the time", Fonda continued.

The actress called harassment an "epidemic", not just in Hollywood but in "the world of business, science, academia, government".

"In bars, in restaurants and stores, women everywhere are assaulted, abuse, harassed and seen for just being sexual objects, there for a man's desire instead of whole human beings".

"I had one experience with a French director, he was going to cast me in a role that required the character had an orgasm and he said to know whether I should be cast he should find out what orgasms I had".

She turned him down and got the part anyway. "You have to understand that you have control over your body and that you have to say no and you have to talk and tell when something like that happens". "I should've been braver and I think that from now on I will be when I hear such stories", Fonda told a live audience, including several members of Britain's parliament, gathered for the interview.
