Fonda was interviewed by CNN, and discussion turned to the Weinstein scandal.
With many major figures in Hollywood covering their backsides as the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal threatens to engulf the industry and many reputations, Jane Fonda has been one of the very few to admit that she knew and stayed silent.
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.
“I found out about Harvey about a year ago, and I’m ashamed that I didn’t say anything back then,” Fonda reveals, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Fonda appeared on NBC's 'Megyn Kelly Today' on Wednesday to promote her new film 'Our Souls At Night'.
Legendary actress Jane Fonda has been the spokesperson for many a political cause in Hollywood over the decades, but she shot down a question about plastic surgery from talk show host Megyn Kelly this week – asking her to change the subject.
79 year old Fonda appeared on the former Fox News anchor’s new NBC show, ‘Megyn Kelly Today’, which was launched only this week, on Wednesday (September 27th). However, Kelly got a bit of a baptism of fire when she asked Fonda about whether she had ever had cosmetic surgery in the past.
“You’ve been an example to everyone in how to age beautifully and with strength and unapologetically,” 46 year old Kelly said. “You admit that you’ve had work done, which I think is to your credit. And you look amazing. Why did you say, I read that you said, you’re not proud to admit you had work done. Why not?”

Mick and Fred have been friends lifelong friends, now both reaching their more senior years they find themselves wanting very different things in their immediate life. Fred's daughter Lena feels her dad is in need of a health check and some R&R so she books them into a luxury spa in the beautiful Swiss mountains.
Whilst Mick feels the pressure to finish his latest screenplay, Fred on the other hand, much to his daughters dismay, has no desire to return to his career scoring and conducting music. Whilst visiting the retreat, both men meet many interesting characters and find themselves in a retrospective mood only to be rejuvenated by the experience in more than one way.
The film score features contributions by many celebrated artists but perhaps the most poignant from Mark Kozelek AKA Sun Kil Moon, Kozelek also makes a cameo appearance in the film. Paloma Faith also has a song on the film and makes a cameo. Youth will open in US cinemas December 4, 2015
A sparky ensemble helps make this film entertaining even if the plot is simplistic and the themes very tame for a movie that is trying so hard to be anarchic. August: Osage County this isn't! Instead, it blends warm comedy, silly slapstick and a heavy dose of sentiment to tell a story that's engaging but never remotely surprising. But the terrific cast makes it well worth a look.
It opens as Judd (Jason Bateman) sees his life go from bad to worse: he catches his wife (Abigail Spencer) in bed with his boss (Dax Shepard), then learns that his father has died. Back home for the funeral, his mother (Jane Fonda) announces that she wants Judd to sit shiva, seven days of mourning, with his three estranged siblings: frazzled housewife Wendy (Tina Fey), frustrated Paul (Corey Stoll) and party boy Phillip (Adam Driver). Everyone in this family is dealing with relationship issues, so they all get involved in each others' lives again, even though none of them likes to talk about these things (except their hilariously over-sharing mother). So as Judd and Wendy reconnect with old flames (Rose Byrne and Timothy Olyphant, respectively), Paul and Phillip have to clarify things with their partners (Kathryn Hahn and Connie Britton).
Each of the various subplots touches on a big issue, although Jonathan Tropper's script never digs too deeply, relying on superficial comedy and simplistic emotion rather than anything too provocative. This is an odd approach for a film that is essentially trying to say that life is messy. Even the funeral and grieving are used more for laughs than emotion, as are old rivalries and perceived betrayals. Much of the brawling, insulting and teasing is genuinely funny, but only because the cast members have so much fun with it all. Bateman offers his usual likeable everyman, generating terrific chemistry with Fey, Stoll and Driver, as well as some jagged wit in his scenes with the always superb Byrne. And Fonda steals the show as an unapologetic woman who says the wrong thing at just the right time.

Unfortunately, things only seem to get worse when his sister phones him to tell him that their father passed away. He has to return home to his mother for the funeral where he meets the rest of his siblings and several old faces, but while most of them are hoping to make a quick exit, their mother has other ideas insisting that they spend a week at home in mourning.
