"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. He was proud of that.
"When people say like, 'Everybody know, ' like, yeah", Damon told US ABC.
What Damon didn't know, which he said in earlier rebukes of the producer, was the "level of criminal sexual predation".
George Clooney also admitted that Weinstein was a "predator" who used to regularly brag about having sexual affairs with famous actresses. "And he treated her incredibly respectfully, always", Damon told host Michael Strahan. "That was his whole M.O". And she said. she could find, you know, in her line of work, which is human rights law. there have been plenty of instances where some guy has tried, you know, to make their move,"George Clooney stated".
"I knew he was ... a womanizer", Damon added.
"Ben Affleck tweeted a statement after the Weinstein allegations came out, saying he was saddened and angry that a man who I worked with used his position of power to intimidate, sexually harass and manipulate many women over decades". You know, THE twins, the royal babies of Hollywood, the blessed offspring of Clooney and Amal. "And clearly they didn't", he added. I knew that story, but I was working with Gwyneth, with Harvey, on [The Talented Mr. Ripley].
The movie star admits he brushed aside the producer's boasts about his affairs with A-listers, because he simply couldn't believe the leading ladies in question would jump into bed with the disgraced Hollywood mogul - but he feels someone closer to Weinstein should have spoken out to end his womanising ways.
Both actors said they had no idea about the allegations despite Harvey Weinstein being pivotal in launching both of their careers.
Matt Damon is backtracking on his claims he knew nothing of Harvey Weinstein's alleged behavior of sexual harassment and assault. "But Ben had told me about it". "All of the people who were a part of that chain". Clooney said it was "infuriating" for him to read stories about reporters who investigated the scandal. I think that's a little bit of a surprise to some of us.
