Blake Lively talked about Harvey Weinstein on Monday’s “GMA.” Though she said she only had “positive” experiences with the disgraced movie mogul, she spoke about what people can learn from the scandal. Watch the video below.

Lively was on “Good Morning America” to promote her new movie, All I See Is You, but after discussing the film, Amy Robach brought up Weinstein and asked, “How do you think Hollywood moves on from this point? How do you think it can seize this moment and turn it into something positive?” The actress responded, “Well, I think it’s important we acknowledge this isn’t just Hollywood. This is so much global. And this isn’t, ‘Oh, guess what, this is what’s happening to women suddenly.’ This has been happening to women since the beginning of time, and I think that’s what’s important.”

“I never had experiences like this with Harvey myself, I only had positive ones, but that goes to show you don’t always see what’s going on behind closed doors,” Lively continued. “I think when people come forward, you have to acknowledge. There’s been moments when I’ve come forward, other people have come forward with things that just feel a little [off] and you’re not sure, but when your bosses tell you that this is not priority to them, then you think, ‘This must not be that big of a deal. What I’m complaining about isn’t really that big of a deal.’ And it is.”

George Stephanopoulos said that’s why talking about it is so important, to which Lively stressed, “But’s it’s more than ‘oh, we’re talking about it and we’re supporting it.’ It’s action. Everybody says that they stand in solidarity but you have to show that you stand in solidarity.” As for All I See Is You, the star explained of her character, “She suffers an eye injury with a car accident when she’s a young girl, so she loses her eyesight around the age 12 and then she ends up getting a corneal transplant in her late 20s, which you can do.”

“And the woman I was working with in the film, she was changing my contact lenses, she actually had this happen,” Lively shared. “So when I have the moment when I regain my sight after having the surgery, it was really like I was playing to her. ‘Is this accurate?’ ‘Is this how you really felt?’ It was nice to have people around to tell the story accurately.” Check out the video below.
