"I'm ashamed that I didn't say anything right then", the Oscar victor said.

Fonda, 79, said that her friend and fellow actor, Rosanna Arquette, had recounted a troubling experience with Weinstein. Arquette then left the room.

Interviewed by CNN International, the actress Jane Fonda is back on the case. Fonda is a daring feminist figure who's fought loudly and publicly for a number of causes; she's known for her fierce activism almost as much as she is for her on-screen work.

The company suspended trading in the shares on October 12 and September 29 respectively. That strategy helped propel the company to a 26 percent sales surge a year ago .


In an interview with the BBC's "Hardtalk" programme to air next Monday, she said Weinstein had been able to sexually harass women for decades "because he's powerful".

More interestingly, and symbolically very strong: Jane Fonda, icon of sexual liberation in american, political commitment intrinsically linked to civil rights, to women and to the fight against the Vietnam war, has made it known that she too had participated in this cope of lead, which was rendered inaudible to many victims.

When pressed by Amanpour, Fonda said this sort of thing also happened to her in the past-though never perpetrated by Weinstein. She told CNN of her own encounter early in her career with a French director, who said he needed to see what kind of orgasms she had in order to cast her for a role.

When a reporter asked her why this silence, while it has in the past shown great boldness, she answered, sorry but honest.

"I think they should all go to jail, and you know let's put Bill Cosby in there... but the question is not just Hollywood, you know, this is epidemic", Fonda, an Academy Award victor, told CNBC's Tania Bryer in an interview that aired Friday.

"We have to stand up to them", Fonda added. "He wanted me to sleep with him".

The early Thursday rescue operation "by Pakistani forces, based on actionable intelligence from USA authorities was successful". A US government source in Washington also said there was no indication the family had been in Afghanistan.


Fonda then turned her message toward Donald Trump, who has been accused by numerous women of sexual harassment. I mean, who are the women that he preyed on and preys on? "That counteracts a lot of the good that we're doing.it's unacceptable".
