Matt Damon Denies Knowing About Harvey Weinstein’s Perviness
Matt Damon has worked with Harvey Weinstein on a NUMBER of his productions, but somehow had NO IDEA WHATSOEVER that he made a hobby of cornering young actresses and trying to intimidate them into playing in his pants.
Despite the fact that many members of Hollywood’s inner circle say Weinsteins antics were an “open secret” of sorts, and folks were aware of the handsy mogul’s proclivities — whether they warned newbies to the industry or not — somehow Damon missed the memo…despite already knowing secondhand that he had tried his costar Gweneth Paltrow to the point that her then-boyfriend Brad Pitt had to step in.
Damon broke down his ignorance to Michael Strahan on GMA:
“I knew he was an a**hole…I knew he was a womanizer…[But] this level of criminal sexual predation was not something I ever thought was going on.”
SMH. Well if he didn’t know he didn’t know. And if he DID know…what was he really going to do about it? We assume he wanted to protect his job just like everyone else…
