Matt Damon Reveals He Knew About Paltrow's Weinstein Experience

Matt Damon Reveals He Knew About Paltrow's Weinstein Experience”

George Clooney turned out to launch the latest film he directed Suburbicon in Los Angeles on Sunday amid an ongoing issue in Hollywood about sexual harassment of women.

The actors were appearing on the morning talk show to promote their latest film, Suburbicon which arrives in theaters on October 27.

"I knew he was. a womanizer". I wouldn't want to be married to the guy. "I didn't really think that they were going to have affairs with Harvey, quite honestly, and clearly they didn't".

Damon's frequent collaborator, George Clooney, was also present for the Good Morning America interview, during which he revealed Weinstein would frequently boast about famous women he had had affairs with - but The Descendants star always thought he was lying.

Since allegations first surfaced in the Times, over 40 women - including actresses Lupita Nyong'o, Lea Seydoux and Sean Young - have accused Weinstein of harassment and assault.

Matt Damon and George Clooney were guests on Monday's "Good Morning America" when Damon admitted that "I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben because he was with her after Brad [Pitt]", Entertainment Tonight reported. "That was his whole M.O.", Damon said.

"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".

The Oscar victor was quick to note that it's not just show business where these issues of sexual harassment and assault are taking place.

"I knew he was an asshole".

Two weeks ago, former New York Times reporter Sharon Waxman (now at The Wrap) wrote that Damon helped get her 2004 exposé on Weinstein scrubbed.

"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.

Damon went on to say that he didn't know about what was going on because it all happened behind closed doors. Oddly enough, those who claim innocence from knowing what kind of person Weinstein is, have remained vocal about their lack of knowledge about his acts.

"He bought Good Will Hunting, he bought it in 1997, I did five movies in quick succession, he signed me up for a three-picture deal. [Moving forward] Let's stop having meetings in hotel rooms - you can have it in the restaurant downstairs". "He was intimidating. Miramax was the place, really the place, that was making great stuff in the '90's".

Earlier in the interview, Damon mentioned that Weinstein's reputation for strong-arming those in the industry was well-known. I didn't work with him after that.
