While speaking with HARDtalk’s Stephen Sackur, Judd, 49, praised Franco’s response and said, “I think that what James said is terrific. I think that we’ve all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were. I mean, we’ve all operated with a certain amount of tone deafness, and I like the culpability, and we have to have restorative justice.”

“This is about men and women being all together and having a more equitable and just workplace, home life, social spaces. I mean, we know that when women are empowered in the workplace and are in decision-making positions that workplaces have better financial outcomes and there’s less harassment when there is more diversity,” the Kiss the Girls star continued, before adding, “And it takes that kind of individual accountability to collectively make the change on a large scale.”

Judd famously spoke out against Harvey Weinstein in November 2017, where she detailed her alleged experience with decades of sexual harassment by the disgraced Hollywood producer. In light of the controversy, more than 80 women, including actresses Angelina Jolie and Rose McGowan, have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault.
