Actor Skeet Ulrich felt powerless to do anything about movie mogul’s Harvey Weinstein’s sexual abuses after learning all about them from a famous female friend.

Skeet, who starred in Weinstein’s Scream, insists most people in Hollywood knew all about the disgraced producer’s reputation, but many, like himself, felt they couldn’t do anything about it.

He tells Cosmopolitan.com:

“I knew. Most people knew. I had dinner with someone who is one of the most famous women on the planet – I won’t say who it is – who has not come out, who told me similar things…There is nothing you can do.

“I mean, what am I gonna do? I can’t step up, certainly then, on allegations. Honestly, and I think it’s what most people faced: ‘How do you cut your livelihood from a very powerful corporation on something that you don’t know what the facts are?’

“Now that it’s starting to come out and people are finally stepping up and saying stuff, I’m glad. That’s what it takes. Because one person stepping up and making allegations is gonna hurt that one person and not help anyone, especially (against) someone with that power.”

And Skeet is particularly proud of his Scream co-star Rose McGowan, who has been one of the most outspoken of Weinstein’s accusers.

“I saw her about a year ago and that was the only time I’d seen her since, like, ’99 or something,” he adds. “None of this (news) was out at that time, so it certainly wasn’t anything I was going to bring up with her. It wasn’t even in my thought process…”

Ulrich hopes the sex scandal swirling around Weinstein will help women in other professions.

“What industry is safe?” he asks. “Where is a beautiful woman, or any woman, free to walk down the street and not be a feast to some a**hole’s eyes? I see how men can be. And then you give a man power? It’s scary.”
