Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in retreat after Ashley Judd's sex claims

Weinstein also said the scholarship foundation wasn't a response to The Times' findings, but had been in the works for a year. At the time, she did not name her attacker, but now she has come forward.

'Though I'm trying to do better, I know I have a long way to go.

"I figured at the very least, someone would see that something happened to me, and they would feel a little less alone if something similar happened to them. In a year from now, I am going to reach out to her".

The lessons, she said, have included: The way you conduct private conversations with friends is not appropriate in the workplace; cursing and sexual stories are not appropriate in the workplace; hitting on women is not appropriate in the workplace. "Her life story was brutal, and I have to respect her".

"He trapped me in a bathroom and tried to get me to touch his dick even after I begged him to leave".

It's uncertain what effect, if any, this will have on the future career of Harvey Weinstein, but according to Weinstein himself, it's an issue he will be dealing with "head on".

"You're using the term sexual harassment, which is a legal term", she told Mr. Stephanopoulos.

He added: "I also have the worst temper known to mankind, my system is all wrong, and sometimes I create too much tension".

Weinstein has been married to former model and Marchesa cofounder Georgina Chapman since December 2007, and they have two kids together: 7-year-old daughter India and 4-year-old son Dashiell.

Harvey Weinstein appeared to be in good spirits Friday during his first public sighting since he was accused of sexually harassing multiple women over the past three decades. In Judd's case, he invited her to what she thought was a business brunch at his hotel, but when she arrived, she was sent up to his room.

Although Weinstein issued the public apology, Weinstein's lawyer contradicted the Times report, insisting it was "saturated with false and defamatory statements" and threatening a lawsuit.

Oscar-winning actress Larson - who starred as a sexual abuse survivor in the critically-acclaimed film Short Term 12 - showed her support for victims of sexual abuse and harassment with the tweet: 'As always, I stand with the fearless survivors of sexual assault and harassment.
