The 'Manchester by the Sea' star was devastated when all the allegations came to light but feels something positive has come from it.

She said: "Every day seemed like such a long time. I'm checking my phone: what else is going on? It felt like the sky kept falling. Listen, it's nothing compared to what people are going through who are the true victims of this situation, but it did put our world into constant flux ... This is unmanageable, and we can't take it anymore. So I think that's why all this is happening now. And so, if that's what it took, then I'll be grateful for it. For it feels like something big is happening."

And the 37-year-old actress understands why some victims may feel "revictimised" after all the allegations surfaced.

She told the February issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine: "[For some victims] it's like being revictimised, because once again they're [the perpetrators] the centre of attention. It's still about them. Because at the heart of every predator is a narcissist. That's the real pity of abuse: it doesn't stop with the event; the abuser becomes the centre of things for a very long time. So here we are now. But I think this has been a very moving time. I've had so many emotions."

Meanwhile, Michelle previously revealed she thinks Hollywood is "sending a message to predators" by recasting Kevin Spacey in 'All the Money in the World' after sexual misconduct allegations were made against him.

She said: "This [decision] doesn't do anything to ease the suffering of people who were all too personally affected by Kevin Spacey, but it is our little act of trying to right a wrong. And it sends a message to predators - you can't get away with this anymore. Something will be done."
