The 34-year-old actress is "proud" a number of women have been able to speak out about their alleged ordeals at the hands of disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and hopes the controversy - which has been followed by other allegations against the likes of Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Piven, Val Kilmer and the late Michael Winner - will signal a wider societal change.

She said: "The abuse of women exists in all industries; it's just the way the world works.

"We just happen to have a platform and our voice is the loudest right now. I'm proud of everybody who's standing up and I'm also proud of the fact that we're living in a country where women are able to speak up and not get stoned or hung or berated on the streets.

"I love this about this country. There are many faults that are currently happening in the world and this is not one of them. So I'm really proud of that.

"Hopefully it fixes itself out. If you remember, back in the day it was, socially-speaking, OK to hit your wife a little bit; it was OK to slap your wife and say: 'She was out of line', give her a backhander.

"So we found a way to deal with that and we'll find a way to deal with this."

Meanwhile, the 'Bad Moms Christmas' actress - who has children Wyatt, three, and Dimitri, 22 months, with husband Ashton Kutcher - admitted she often feels a "failure" as a parent because of her working commitments, but she's so passionate about her career, she wouldn't change things.

Speaking in iweekend, she said: "My husband and I both love what we do. We're a little bit workaholic, and we don't say this proudly, but I do think there's a balance.

"For a long time, I felt so much guilt about working because I was like: I shouldn't love working so much. But that's OK. I love what I do and I'm teaching my kids a good work ethic.

"Like everybody, I sometimes feel like I'm a failure as a mom. Today I won't see my kids for 10 hours. Do you think that makes me feel good? No."
