When asked for his thoughts on accusations about sexual abuse by leading actresses against Mr Weinstein, the Thor actor replied.

"It's horrible, it's awful, my heart goes out to anyone who suffered through that kind of abuse and experience," he said.

"I hope it sheds a light on the issue and people don't continue to abuse their positions of power, and people aren't manipulated into situations they don't want to be a part of."

Mr Weinstein was fired from his own company this week, with his wife announcing she was leaving him today.

The list of actresses alleging inappropriate sexual advances, if not outright rape, against him continues to grow.

The allegations first emerged after a New York Times piece was published detailing several incidents involving actresses like Ashley Judd.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie have today joined the group of women accusing Weinstein of sexual harassment.

The allegations against Harvey Weinstein spanned three decades. His downfall came in three days.
