Matt Damon Admits He Knew Harvey Weinstein Allegedly Harassed Gwyneth Paltrow

"I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben because he was with her after [her relationship with] Brad [Pitt]", the Oscar victor, 47, told GMA contributor Michael Strahan.

Matt Damon says while he knew Harvey Weinstein was a womaniser, but "this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on". He was proud of that.

Damon also said anyone who spent five minutes with Weinstein knew he was a bully. And I knew he was a womanizer. However, he did say he was aware of Gwyneth Paltrow's experience, where Weinstein allegedly invited her to his hotel suite and suggested they head to his bedroom for massages.

George Clooney, who has also worked with Weinstein, joined Damon in the GMA interview and said he didn't believe Weinstein when he used to boast about his affairs with actresses. "That was his whole M.O. Like, could you survive a meeting with Harvey?" And I knew he was a womaniser.

Texas city refuses providing hurricane aid to those who boycott Israel
Texas is not the only state to make the government's compassion towards hurricane victims contingent upon their political beliefs. Dickinson applicants have to agree to act as an "independent contractor" in order to receive grant money from the city.

Damon explained, speaking to Weinstein's reputation since the days he ran his first studio, Miramax, before touching on the scores of allegations of sexual assault levied against the disgraced producer.

Damon and Affleck have both come under fire for their close ties to Weinstein in the fallout of the scandal.

You'd never know they were the parents to four-month-old twins! "And clearly they didn't", he added.

"I knew that story".

The Oscar-winning director had voiced his concern about Hollywood slipping into a "witch-hunt" culture in the aftermath of Harvey Weinstein scandal where multiple women accused the producer of sexual misconduct.

"Harvey would talk to me about women that he had had affairs with", said Clooney.

George Clooney is typically one to avoid drama. Affleck claimed that he was unaware of Weinstein's sexual abuse against women, a fact that actress Rose McGowan tore down immediately. The film is seen as a new crime thriller-black comedy mix "Race is never sort of a hot breaking news story its seems to always be part of our original stand so some of this was always going to play out..." "But the idea that this predator, this assaulter. was out there silencing women like that, it's beyond infuriating".

"My wife is a very smart, very together, very accomplished human rights lawyer, and she said 'there have been plenty of times in my life, in the law community I had to tell someone to knock it off.' So it happens everywhere", Clooney told "Extra" in a recent interview. That's a story that has been oddly absent from the movie theaters, while we've had suburban dystopias like The Stepford Wives (twice!), Pleasantville, American Beauty, Little Children, and even The Purge beat into us for decades.
