His heartfelt plea for men to 'stand with women' is something that has been reiterated by Game of Thrones actress, Lena Headey.

In a powerful message with no caption, she channels her inner Cersei and takes a clear swipe at the disgraced producer.

Lena, who is a mum to son, Wylie and daughter Teddy, makes it clear, all men should be accountable for the way they treat women.

Our gal Margot, 27, has also leapt to the defence of the women involved, by praising her 'brave friend' Cara Delevingne for coming forward as a victim.

Talking to Entertainment Tonight the recently married Suicide Squad actress slammed the sordid scandal.

“Cara is a dear friend of mine and I already knew she was a fierce, brave woman. Today just proved that again,” she said. “I think the whole situation is so disturbing and sad but I think the conversation surrounding it, hopefully, good comes out of it.”

George Clooney, who recently became a dad to twins, Ella and Alexander, also commented, saying Weinstein's alleged behaviour is 'indefensible.'

Academy award winning Meryl Streep, who once likened the Shakespeare in Love producer to 'God' also waded in.

"His behaviour is inexcusable," the Iron Lady star said a statement. "But the abuse of power familiar."

One of the first women to share their views on the scandal was The Mountain Between Us star, Kate Winslet.

"The way Harvey Weinstein has treated these vulnerable, talented young women is NOT the way women should ever EVER deem to be acceptable or commonplace in ANY workplace," she said in a statement to Variety.

Outspoken feminist, Jennifer Lawrence, who won an Oscar for her role in The Weinstein Company's Silver Linings Playbook, also told Variety, she was 'disturbed' by the mounting allegations.

“I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations," she said to Variety. "This kind of abuse is inexcusable and absolutely upsetting."

"My heart goes out to all of the women affected by these gross actions," she added. And I want to thank them for their bravery to come forward."

Even former president Barak Obama released a statement saying, "Any man who demeans and degrades women in such fashion needs to be condemned and held accountable, regardless of wealth or status.”

The list of vocal supporters just keeps on growing, including Lend Dunham, Judi Dench, Jeff Bridges, Emma Thompson and Liz Hurley all chipping in too.

With so many stars making huge strides to distance themselves from this obscene story, it seems it'll only be a matter of time before Hollywood as a whole shames this kind of abuse.
