American actress Jane Fonda revealed she has been raped and was sexually abused as a child, in an interview with British magazine The Edit.

"I've been raped, I've been sexually abused as a child and I've been fired because I wouldn't sleep with my boss, and I always thought it was my fault," the 79-year-old said.

The two-time Oscar winner, who is known for her political activism, made the comments in an interview marking International Women's Day on March 8.

"I know young girls who've been raped and didn't even know it was rape. They think, 'It must have been because I said 'no' the wrong way,'" she said.

"One of the great things the women's movement has done is to make us realize that (rape and abuse is) not our fault. We were violated and it's not right."

The magazine, which is owned by the online luxury shopping platform Net-A-Porter, did not mention who was responsible for the abuse.

Fonda was interviewed by fellow Oscar winner and activist Brie Larson.
