Hollywood's History of Sexual Misconduct

Lady Gaga, Evan Rachel Wood, Rosario Dawson and Debra Messing are among the stars chiming in.

Alyssa Milano encouraged women to tweet "me too" if they have ever been victims of sexual harassment or assault, and many of her Hollywood friends -- both male and female -- flooded the social media platform with their personal stories.

"If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem," Milano tweeted on Sunday. The simple yet powerful phrase quickly became a trend on Twitter and on other social media platforms.

"Because I was shamed and considered a 'party girl' I felt I deserved it. I shouldn't have been there, I shouldn't have been 'bad' #metoo," actress Evan Rachel Wood responded.

The movement is a direct response to the Harvey Weinstein scandal, where several actresses have accused him of sexual misconduct. While some tweets just read "me too," others have touching recounts of what happened to them. By early Monday, more than 200,000 #MeToo tweets were published under the hashtag.

Weinstein's lawyer denied many of the more serious sexual misconduct allegations against the disgraced movie mogul in a statement reading, "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances."

See who else in Hollywood has said "me too."
