Matt Damon Reveals He Knew About Paltrow's Weinstein Experience

Producer/screenwriter Scott Rosenberg recently came out and said that the entire entertainment industry has known about Harvey Weinstein's sexual predatory behavior, but looked away to prevent from stopping the party. "I mean, he was proud of that".

"The fact that the story is coming out now and the more it comes out, I want to know all of it", he told the program.

'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'.

"I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben [Affleck] because he was with her after Brad [Pitt]", he said. Damon Claims that Paltrow was the queen of Miramax and Weinstein treated her with respect after their altercation. 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.

Clooney told ABC News that in the past Weinstein had told him that he had affairs with "some actresses who were friends of mine", but Clooney said that he never believed him. He said, "And I didn't think they were going to have affairs with Harvey, quite honestly". "But the idea that this predator, this assaulter. was out there silencing women like that, it's beyond infuriating".

The Oscar victor was quick to note that it's not just show business where these issues of sexual harassment and assault are taking place. However, more women continue to speak up by the day it seems and many of their accounts reveal certain patterns in his behavior. (Paltrow and Affleck dated in the late Nineties, following her broken engagement with Pitt.) "But I was working with Gwyneth, with Harvey, on [The Talented Mr. Ripley]".

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. I wouldn't want to be married to the guy.

Since the article that was publshed in the New York Times about Weinstein, women all across the country have become more vocal about their encounters with sexual harrassment in the workplace.

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 first worked with Weinstein on his first movie, the critically-accailmed "Good Will Hunting", which shot Damon into stardom.

"I thought you were my Uncle Harvey", Paltrow, who was 22 at the time, remembers thinking afterward. "And I did five movies in quick succession", Damon said.

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