Activist and actress Jane Fonda knew about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct for about a year, she said in an interview Thursday.

Fonda, 79, sat down with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour to discuss the movie mogul’s alleged sexual assault and harassment, reported CNN on Thursday. Fonda “found out about Harvey about a year ago” from her friend and fellow actress Rosanna Arquette.

“I guess it hadn’t happened to me, and so I didn’t feel that it was my place,” said Fonda in regards to why she did not tell others about Weinstein’s alleged misconduct.

After Weinstein’s alleged assaults went public last Thursday, Fonda said in response, “I’m ashamed that I didn’t say anything right then.”

Fonda co-founded the nonprofit Women’s Media Center in 2005.
