Sandra Bullock recently claimed that despite never working with Harvey Weinstein, she "was afraid of him." The claim comes after more than 70 women have accused the co-founder of Miramax film studio and The Weinstein Co. for sexual misconduct.

"I only heard what Harvey wanted people to hear, and that made me so f***ing angry," the Ocean's 8 star said. "People would say, 'Well, you know how she got that role? She f***ed Harvey,'" the star of the all-female Ocean's 8 film said.

"I would say, 'Shut the f**k up," she continued. "You don't know that.' Then, later, to find out that woman was brutally attacked. They didn't sleep with Harvey."

"Harvey wanted you to think that," she added.

The Oscar-winning actress said that she was"really, really scared" when the first "brave people" began to openly accuse Weinstein.

"I was like, 'Oh my God, this is amazing, but f**k, f**k, f**k, what if it doesn't work? Please God, let it not swing the other way,'" she said. "We're in such uncharted territory right now. I've seen a lot of fear and a lot of men of a certain generation not understanding."

Weinstein surrendered to police at the end of last month, although he is currently free on US $1 million bail.
