Jeffrey Dean Morgan is hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel after the film industry has been mired in the issue of sexual assault and/or harassment since earlier this month. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor had nothing but praise for all the women that have spoken out to share their own experience of sexual abuse.

"I think everything that's come out in the last couple of weeks, starting with Harvey Weinstein -- anybody who has talked about it and even those who haven't yet are incredibly brave and I think it's time for change," he said. "Hopefully all this stuff is going to change this business."

Producer faces multiple sexual abuse allegations

The issue of sexual misconduct in Hollywood has been making headlines since movie mogul Harvey Weinstein was exposed for his misconduct.

Dozens of women have come forward to open up about the nightmare they experienced at the hands of the renowned studio boss.

The ongoing scandal has also inspired other victims of sexual assault and/or harassment to speak up and shed light on the issue. It has also sparked online rallies, like #MeToo and #HowIWillChange campaigns, to encourage sexual abuse survivors to break their silence on the issue.

This controversy has also triggered the online community to look back and bring up past misconduct committed by some celebrities and personalities. Ben Affleck, who criticized Harvey Weinstein over sexual assault allegations, had a taste of his own medicine when the public re-uploaded his 2003 interview with MTV's "Total Request Live," where he allegedly groped Hilarie Burton.

The former host, who acknowledged the incident, said she has not forgotten how she tried to fake a smile in order to stop herself from crying over the episode.

After he saw the backlash for responding to Harvey Weinstein's scandal, Ben Affleck took to social media to apologize to Hilarie Burton and to admit that he "acted inappropriately" in the past.

When Jeffrey Dean Morgan was asked about his wife's own experience of sexual misconduct, the "Walking Dead" alum admitted that he is happy that Ben Affleck has owned up to his mistake. “I don’t want to make a big deal of it because she didn't," he said, referring to Hilarie Burton.

The actor continued that this issue is not only prevalent in the film industry, but also in other organizations. He then expressed admiration for his wife, and all women that have taken a stand against sexual abuse.
