Posted October 25, 2017

"Ben told me, but I knew that they had come to whatever, you know, agreement or understanding that they had come to, she had handled it", Damon told Michael Strahan in an interview for Good Morning America, which aired Monday. He was proud of that. #Gwyneth Paltrow also came forward, telling the New York Times that at 22 years of age, Weinstein made unwanted advances at his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills. "[Moving forward] Let's stop having meetings in hotel rooms - you can have it in the restaurant downstairs".

"When Amal and I met and when we got married it became really clear we were lucky..."

"I knew he was...a womaniser".

The two movie stars addressed the sexual abuse allegations against the producer while promoting their movie Suburbicon.

In his interview alongside George Clooney, Damon said he had heard about Paltrow's incident with Weinstein from Affleck, who dated the actress after Pitt. He was signed to a three-picture deal with Miramax quickly after that but immediately knew that Weinstein wasn't someone he wanted to cross paths with again. "And clearly they didn't". "I knew he was an a--".

The Hollywood heavyweights spoke out about the producer and their experiences working with him.

Instead, Clooney and the stars of the film, Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, commented on the ongoing fallout following claims of sexual harrassment in Hollywood.

More than 40 women have come forward with accusations against Weinstein ever since his alleged actions were first detailed in an expose in The New York Times, and a subsequent article in The New Yorker, earlier this month (Oct17).

"Harvey would talk to me about women that he had had affairs with", said Clooney. But this level of sexual predation is something that I had never imagined. Matt Damon and George Clooney have expressed themselves publicly on american television. 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..." "You're not going to be with them when they have to make a lot of these decisions. And there's some woman who was somehow assaulted, and it was at the Golden Globes, and I somehow missed it?" he said. "And in doing that, I think that will scare away that kind of behavior".
