Cher has come to the defence of Meryl Streep following accusations that the actress knew about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct.
Last week, posters of Streep and Weinstein together with the words "she knew" written over the actress' eyes, surfaced near her home in Pasadena.
Cher, who starred in the 1983 film Silkwood with Streep, has now thrown in her two cents over the controversy on Twitter. The 'Believe' singer recounted a time when Streep risked her life for a woman who was being attacked by a man. She also called the multi-Oscar-nominated actress "a woman of honour". The pair are further set to star alongside each other in next year's Mamma Mia! sequel.

Responding to Rose McGowan's comments earlier this month, Streep said she wasn't "deliberately silent". She expressed how she didn't know about any of Weinstein's crimes over the decades, to include the avowed sexual attack of Weinstein on McGowan in the 90s. "I don't tacitly approve of rape. I didn't know", Streep added.
