George Clooney says wife Amal has been sexually harassed during law career

George Clooney Dishes on Twins' Personalities, and Has Strong Words on Weinstein Scandal Matt Damon Knew Harvey Winstein Harassed Gwyneth Paltrow Because Ben Affleck Told Him

The two movie stars addressed the sexual abuse allegations against the producer while promoting their movie Suburbicon.

"When people say everybody knew, yeah, I knew he was an (expletive)", Damon said in the sit down with Michael Strahan.

Damon said his friend and fellow actor Ben Affleck had told him about an alleged incident between Weinstein and Paltrow, who won an Oscar in the Weinstein-produced 1998 drama Shakespeare in Love. Pitt later confronted Weinstein, who later told Paltrow never to tell anyone else about what happened.

I never talked to Gwyneth about it but Ben told me that whatever agreement they had come to there was an understanding... and he treated her incredibly respectfully. If Waxman was writing about Weinstein in 2004, then Damon had an important piece of information - or at least knew enough to refrain from running interference on a sex scandal at Miramax.

George Clooney is appalled no one came forward with the truth about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assault and harassment stories years ago. The "Shakespeare in Love" Oscar victor recently revealed that Winstein placed his hands on her and suggested they go to his hotel room bedroom for massages.

Egyptian official: 14 policemen killed southwest of Cairo
The agency, citing an unnamed security official, said that a number of militants were killed but gave no further details. It also said that 13 policemen, including four officers and nine conscripts, were injured and one policeman was missing.

"But the idea that this predator, this assaulter was out there silencing women like that, it's beyond infuriating".

Previously, actress Gwyneth Paltrow spoke about how Weinstein had sexually harassed her in 1996 when she was working on a film produced by him, the adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma. However, he concedes that he was more than aware of Weinstein's infamous reputation. "You had to spend about five minutes with him to know that he was a bully". That was his legend. "That was his whole M.O. Like, could you survive a meeting with Harvey?" He admitted that getting married and having children was not always part of the plan, "When Amal and I met and when we got married it became really clear we were lucky..." I want to know who did that. He was proud of that. "That's how he carried himself", Matt told Good Morning America. 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.

"This level of criminal sexual predation was not something I ever thought was going on".

"This would have been a hard past couple of days even if my name hadn't been dragged into it. Then I'm sorry", he said.
