2017 has definitely been the year that lifted the veil, exposing the tragic truth about sexual harassment and abuse being a prolific issue not only in Hollywood but around the world, including Australia's very own entertainment industry.

With the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Don Burke being outed, many victims have stepped forward with the #MeToo campaign, speaking of their own experiences.

Just like so many across the world, Australian actor Paul Hogan is gobsmacked that women are facing such horrendous problems.

Hoges would "take matters into my own hands" if anyone touched his granddaughters.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, the dad-of-six remarked, "It's great that it's come out!"

"There's so many people being exposed that you never expected."

"I was staggered at the creepiness of people in Hollywood."

Paul has five children with his first wife Noelene Edwards (pictured) and one with his second wife Crocodile Dundee co-star Linda Kozlowski.

Proving he actually is the the real-life embodiment of Crocodile Dundee, the actor quipped that if anyone laid a finger on his granddaughters, including Channel Seven reporter Mylee Hogan, there'd be hell to pay.

"I have four attractive granddaughters, one of them is on Channel 7, and if I find out someone out there is hassling her, I'd go out and kick their arse."

"They shouldn't have to put up with that," he said.

Meanwhile, there was one attacker that didn't surprise the Aussie icon.

"I knew Harvey Weinstein was a grub!"

Adding, "No one was shocked about Harvey."
