"You only had to spend five minutes with Harvey Weinstein to know he was a bully; he was intimidating".

"I knew he was a womanizer", Damon said. "He was proud of that". "I didn't really necessarily believe that because to believe that would believe bad things about actresses that I know and like, and I didn't really buy into that", he recalled.

Damon demanded he had not known about the "level of criminal sexual predation". I think a lot of actors have come out and said, everybody's saying we all knew. "And [Weinstein] treated her incredibly respectfully, always".

(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]". The two are now on a press tour for their new movie Suburbicon, and sat down with Michael Strahan on on Good Morning America this morning to talk about what they knew.

"I didn't really think that they were going to have affairs with Harvey, quite honestly", Clooney said. This whole Harvey Weinstein thing has basically been an open secret in Hollywood, but Clooney says that no one with power to change things wanted to talk about it.

Since the #Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal broke out, many stars have come forward to talk about their experiences at the hands of their sexual abusers, regardless if it was Weinstein's.

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. And clearly, they didn't. Waxman got calls from Damon and Russell Crowe personally to tube a story that tied Fabrizio Lombardo, then heading Miramax's Italian unit, to Weinstein's sexual appetite and about a payoff to a woman who had accused Weinstein of non-consensual sexual behavior. Damon explained, speaking to Weinstein's reputation since the days he ran his first studio, Miramax, before touching on the scores of allegations of sexual assault levied against the disgraced producer.

"But the idea that this predator, this assaulter, was out there silencing women like that, it's beyond infuriating", Clooney told ABC News. "Could you stand up for yourself with Harvey...?" "Right now I feel like my kids are innocent and don't have to deal with this stuff and I'm certainly concerned that at some point we'll all have to address it together".

Damon said Weinstein's "darkness" was done in private, and he never saw it take place.

George also discussed the allegations against Weinstein, noting that he wishes someone with knowledge of the situation had come forward years ago.
