Jane Fonda has become the latest celebrity to address Les Moonves’ departure from CBS.
Six more women accused the former CEO of sexual misconduct in another explosive Ronan Farrow report Sunday night and Fonda was asked about the controversy as she walked the red carpet at the L.A. premiere of “Jane Fonda in Five Acts”.
She said, according to Variety: “It’s a shame he didn’t behave, [but now] it’s come back to get him.
“This has been happening for a long time and it’s been an epidemic of behaviour like this on the part of people who have power. I think the #MeToo movement has started an avalanche. And it’s only the beginning.”
Fonda also said she “wasn’t surprised” when Robert Redford announced his retirement following the release of “The Old Man & the Gun”: “He told me that when we were making our last movie together that he was going to be packing it in.”
Moonves, who has denied the sexual assault allegations, resigned Sunday night as the accusations against him piled up.
Despite taking time off from “The Talk”, Moonves’ wife, Julie Chen, still appeared on “Big Brother” Thursday night.
