Matt Damon and George Clooney Talk About on Harvey Weinstein Scandal

He called for fundamental changes and said even his wife has seen the harassment, "My wife is a very smart, very together, very accomplished human rights lawyer and she said there have been times in my life, in the law community I had to tell someone to knock it off, so it happens everywhere".

'I wanted it to be entertaining, wanted it to be fun... and if along the way people want to talk about it great, that's what you hope for'. "He was proud of that". And I knew he was a womanizer. I wouldn't want to be married to the guy, but that's not my business, really.

Moore added that the issue of abuse in Hollywood needs to be tackled on a practical level, saying: "There are some lawyers in NY right now working on eradicating non disclosure agreements in the case of sexual harassment and I think this is absolutely the right way to go".

However, Damon did say that he knew that Gwyneth Paltrow was allegedly sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein, having been told the story by his friend Ben Affleck.

George Clooney spoke out again on Sunday about recent sexual harassment stories in Hollywood and lambasted Woody Allen for saying the Harvey Weinstein scandal created a "witch hunt atmosphere".

"You had to spend about five minutes with [Weinstein] to know that he was a bully". I knew that story, but I was working with Gwyneth, with Harvey, on [The Talented Mr. Ripley].

Clooney added that there has to be a comeuppance for "all of the people who were part of" this, which will hopefully "scare away this kind of behavior". "I thought it was interesting to talk about things like building walls and scapegoating minorities".

Clooney, then, recognized Weinstein gloated to him about ladies with whom he guaranteed to have had illicit relationships.

"If there was ever an event that I was at and Harvey was doing this kind of thing and I didn't see it, then I am so deeply sorry, because I would have stopped it".

Matt Damon was previously criticized after a report stated that he helped kill a New York Times expose on Harvey Weinstein's abuse.

Clooney said his better half let him know there are "a lot of examples" of this conduct in "her profession" as well, including that it's astounding "to a few of us that it's this huge". "There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip".
