Matt Damon discussed the sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein during an ABC News interview,
“I knew I wouldn’t want him married to anyone close to me. But that was the extent of what we knew. I mean, and that wasn’t a surprise to anybody. So when you hear Harvey this, Harvey that, I mean, look at the guy. Of course he’s a womanizer.”
Damon worked with Weinstein on his award winning film “Good Will Hunting” which was produced by Miramax. Damon also discussed the recent allegations against Al Franken,
“When you see Al Franken taking a picture putting his hands on that woman’s flak jacket and mugging for the camera, going like that, you know, that is just like a terrible joke, and it’s not funny. It’s wrong, and he shouldn’t have done that … But when you talk about Harvey and what he’s accused of, there are no pictures of that. He knew he was up to no good. There’s no witnesses. There’s no pictures. There’s no braggadocio … So they don’t belong in the same category.”
Damon mentioned that all of this behavior needs to be confronted, but that there is a continuum.
