Matt Damon and George Clooney Share What They Knew About Harvey Weinstein

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

Damon appeared on Good Morning America alongside George Clooney to talk about their upcoming film "Suburbicon".

Clooney, who directed and executive produced the crime comedy Suburbicon, attended the premiere with his wife Amal, with whom he shares twin babies Ella and Alexander.

Matt Damon says that he was aware of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment of Gwyneth Paltrow. "This level of criminal sexual predation was not something I ever thought was going on", he added. Clooney described Weinstein's behaviour as "indefensible" and said he had "never seen any of this behavior-ever". And there's some woman who was somehow assaulted, and it was at the Golden Globes, and I somehow missed it?

Waxman got calls from Damon and Russell Crowe personally to tube a story that tied Fabrizio Lombardo, then heading Miramax's Italian unit, to Weinstein's sexual appetite and about a payoff to a woman who had accused Weinstein of non-consensual sexual behavior.

"I think right now the most important thing is to empower women to come out and speak out about what happened to them to let people know that it's not OK", said Moore.

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

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".

The teens, whose identities have not been made public, were taken into custody on Friday, authorities told told WXYZ Detroit . Couldn't they just go skip rocks on the river or something instead of doing something so senseless.

Clooney then claimed that Weinstein told him of women he "had affairs" with, but the "Ocean's 11" actor refused to believe them and any of the rumors that he heard.

Since The New York Times published an explosive article on the disgraced movie mogul which contained allegations of sexual harassment and abuse over three decades, more victims of sexual harassment have been encouraged to share their stories. I knew he was an asshole-he was proud of that.

Paltrow herself opened up about the alleged incident to the New York Times this month.

"I was there at the height of his power", Damon admitted on Good Morning America. Ben told me, but I knew that they had come to whatever agreement or understanding they had come to.

Miramax was the place, really the place, that was making great stuff in the 90s.

Matt Damon and Robin Williams starred in Good Will Hunting.

Damon added Monday that though it wasn't hard to recognize that Weinstein was difficult to work with right from the get-go, he hadn't realized the extent of the producer's misconduct within the industry. Clooney said it was "infuriating" for him to read stories about reporters who investigated the scandal.
