Actor Julianne Moore has said she hopes disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women, is “prosecuted”.

The 56-year-old actor recently opened up about her unfortunate encounter with the producer, saying he had approached her “twice” but she refused.

“I hope that he’s prosecuted for some of these things. I hope that some of the charges stand,” Moore told NBC.

The Still Alice star, who has collaborated with Weinstein in the past, said she was never in a situation where she was alone with him.

“I think it’s really, really important when we discuss this that, rather than it being salacious conversation, this is criminal behaviour,” she added.
