Supposed sharp-eyed critics of suburbia: No seriously, we never knew about Weinstein

Supposed sharp-eyed critics of suburbia: No seriously, we never knew about Weinstein

Apart from Paltrow's experience, Damon said he never heard about Weinstein's "darkness", as the producer allegedly preyed on women in private. "When people say everybody knew, yeah I knew he was an asshole". And I knew he was a womanizer. "I mean, he was proud of that". I was there at the height of his power, and what you knew back then, you had to spend about five minutes [with him] to know he was a bully and intimidating... But this level of criminal sexual predation is not something I ever thought was going on. "And you know, she was the 'First Lady of Miramax, ' and he treated her incredibly respectfully, always". "But I knew that [Weinstein and Paltrow] had come to whatever agreement or understanding they had come to".

George Clooney, who has also worked with Weinstein, joined Damon in the GMA interview and said he didn't believe Weinstein when he used to boast about his affairs with actresses. "I didn't necessarily believe him quite honestly, because to believe him would be to believe the worst of some actresses who were friends of mine".

More than 40 women have come forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment or sexual assault, with allegations spanning decades. However, more women continue to speak up by the day it seems and many of their accounts reveal certain patterns in his behavior. Damon and Paltrow were co-stars in Miramax Films' "The Talented Mr. Ripley" in 1999. That was his legend; that was his whole MO (method of operation): Could you survive a meeting with Harvey? The 56-year-old Hollywood star said having children is not necessary to fully understand the horror of the Weinstein scandal.

George Clooney says the sexual harassment epidemic stretches far beyond Hollywood - and even his wife Amal, a human rights attorney, has been affected.

The film, written by the Coen brothers, follows two threads - one an African American family coming to an idyllic 1950s suburbia and not being accepted, the other about a man called Gardner (Matt Damon) whose house is invaded and in the process, his wife, played by Julianne Moore is killed.

"If we can get to that point, we've actually succeeded and this thing won't just end up being Harvey Weinstein jokes in three months". The actor claimed that if Harvey Weinstein was involved in sexual abuse in public, such as the Golden Globe Awards, or anywhere that Damon would have been a witness, he would have stopped it. 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.
