Matt Damon Knew Harvey Winstein Harassed Gwyneth Paltrow Because Ben Affleck Told Him

George Clooney Dishes on Twins' Personalities, and Has Strong Words on Weinstein Scandal

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.

"When people say "everybody knew" - yeah, I knew he was an a-hole", continued Matt, who made five films with Harvey, his onetime mentor, in the '90s.

"I knew he was an [expletive]. I mean, he was proud of that". I wouldn't want to be married to the guy, but that's not my business, really. "There's lawyers in NY right now working on eradicating non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) in the case of sexual harassment and I think that's absolutely the right way to go". She said on Twitter that she told Affleck that she was sexually abused by Weinstein, to which he said he had told Weinstein to stop doing that to her. Damon Claims that Paltrow was the queen of Miramax and Weinstein treated her with respect after their altercation. "But I knew that they had come to whatever agreement or understanding that they had come to-she had handled it".

George Clooney said it was beyond infuriating that Harvey Weinstein was silencing women, but thinks the scandal will finally shut down the infamous casting couch.If Hollywood reacts in the right way.

"I didn't really think that they were going have affairs with Harvey, quite honestly".

His comments come after more than 40 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment or sexual assault, with the allegations spanning decades.

Damon did, however, confirm that he knew Gwyneth Paltrow's story. I knew he was an a**hole.

He said "You don't have to have children to think in terms of how Harvey Weinstein and people have treated women and to think how bad that is, you don't need children to point you in that direction". Damon stated, situated alongside George Clooney, in what should be a fitting for their new 50's-set wrongdoing dramedy Suburbicon.

"[Weinstein] didn't do it out in the open", Damon said of the alleged harassment against women.

"The fact that one of the most powerful people I've ever seen in Hollywood has been banished basically is a shot across the bow to any man in this industry who would leverage and use their power to mistreat women", said Damon. 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.

The actor's comments come after he and fellow actor Matt Damon maintained they had no idea of the 65-year-old's actions in Tinseltown, and called their former colleague a "bully".
