Anderson admitted she never had any sexual encounters with Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since bombshell reports in October documented decades of alleged sexual abuse and harassment.

In 2014, Anderson revealed that she was also a victim of sexual abuse. Sometimes you think you are going to be safe with an adult in a room. "I'm endeavoring to tell ladies as a survivor of youth mishandle myself - It is imperative to be proactive as a grown-up who knows better - in shielding themselves".

Anderson spoke with Megyn Kelly on Thursday, where she talked about the sexual abuse she had to overcome as a child. "It is totally hypocritical to ignore this...[I] will not get coerced into apology".

Long before the allegations against the 65-year-old Weinstein surfaced, Anderson said she was already an expert at fending off inappropriate advances and offers from men.

She continues, "To say I am victim blaming completely misconstrues my point". Anderson said she was doing a motion picture with Weinstein where she stated, "I can't do the film if there will be a pooch in the film" which was met with a negative reaction from Weinstein. We have the power to be safe and free by using common sense.

The Playboy veteran laughed as she said she was not surprised the onslaught of sexaul assault allegations against the movie mogul and described how he once phoned her to bully her about a film she was in. These [are] things that are common sense.

'If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave.

"I've had some extremely bad beaus and I've never been conversed with along these lines", said Anderson. My message is consistent throughout- I'm a deep thinker / I have a unique perspective. and effect is part of my life.

While talking about Weinstein's accusers, she said they knowing that they were getting into it, when they went to former producer's home alone, her comment received much attention which becomes a subject of controversy and criticism. "Just common sense: don't go into a hotel room alone". That certain people or certain producers in Hollywood are people to avoid privately. I have confidence in adoration and duty and good judgment. "And I stand by what I say". I just naively said, "Well there must be a number 2 then, so I'm not interested". Ladies are effective and brilliant and we can utilize every one of our charms in more positive ways. I believe in love and commitment and common sense.
