Matt Damon already knew Weinstein harassed Gwyneth Paltrow

The Oscar-winner said that problems of sexual assault and abuse aren't just confined to the film industry, telling ET while promoting new movie Suburbicon: "She's [Amal] faced those exact kinds of situations in law".

Amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal that has rocked Hollywood, George Clooney has revealed even his wife, Amal Clooney, has been sexually harassed. "I knew he was an a**hole".

"You could spend five minutes with him to know he was a bully, he was intimidating". "I knew he was a womanizer...but this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on".

The actor-director added that he witnessed Weinstein bragging of affairs with actresses who were friends of his, but he never believed him.

Matt Damon is continuing to open up about Harvey Weinstein, and what he did and didn't know about the alleged sexual harasser and assaulter!

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 like, "Everybody knew, ' like, yeah", Damon told ABC News" Michael Strahan. "I talked with my wife [Amal] about this".

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. But I'm not, you know, that's not my business really.

As previously reported, Paltrow, 45, told The New York Times earlier this month that Weinstein, 65, invited her to his hotel suite in 1996 for a work meeting that allegedly ended with him asking for a massage.

"It's not endemic only to Hollywood, it's all over the world and I don't know if we want to reach a conclusion, what we want to do is empower women to speak out about what's going on and let them know that they're not alone, that this is behaviour that should not be acceptable", she said.

"What makes something like this so horrific is that these are women and actresses who are pursuing their dreams", Damon said.
