Matt Damon and George Clooney Talk About on Harvey Weinstein Scandal

Damon appeared on Good Morning America alongside George Clooney to talk about their upcoming film "Suburbicon". 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. "You only had to spend five minutes with Harvey Weinstein to know he was a bully; he was intimidating. 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". "If it's not a moment, there's just going to be stupid Harvey Weinstein jokes in about three months and nothing really moves forward so I hope it is". Clooney described Weinstein's behaviour as "indefensible" and said he had "never seen any of this behavior-ever".

He said it was "beyond infuriating" that the disgraced producer had been "out there silencing women like that" and vowed that there "has to be a comeuppance" to prevent this from happening to others.

"When people say everybody knew, like, yeah I knew he was an a**hole", Damon said. "I never talked to Gwyneth about it, Ben told me". Also thrown into the conversation are actors Ben Affleck and #Matt Damon, who frequently collaborated with Weinstein. Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd are among the women who have claimed Weinstein made unwanted sexual advances toward them early in their careers, and several women, including Rose McGowan, have accused Weinstein of rape.

Paltrow was one of the first Hollywood actresses to come forward and accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment. But I'm not, you know, that's not my business really.

"What makes something like this so horrific is that these are women and actresses who are pursuing their dreams", Damon said. But I knew that they had come to whatever, you know, agreement or understanding that they had come to, she handled it.

Super Mario Odyssey Will Support the Switch's Video Capturing Feature
To capture video you need to hold down the capture button - a quick press still takes a screengrab. The new function allows players to transfer save data from one Nintendo Switch console to another.

Damon attempted to reiterate this point during the GMA interview before he acknowledged he knew about Weinstein's alleged harassment of Paltrow.

Weinstein, 65, has denied any claims of non-consensual sex, but has previously apologized for other inappropriate behavior from his past, and is now seeking professional help for psychological issues in Arizona.

Damon, who stars in the film, said these allegations will prompt "massive systemic change".

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. That was his legend; that was his whole MO (method of operation): Could you survive a meeting with Harvey?

"People who worked for him were, like, "I'm coming to make good movies".
