George Clooney Dishes on Twins' Personalities, and Has Strong Words on Weinstein Scandal

He was proud of that.

That's how he carried himself. I knew he was a womanizer. "And he treated her incredibly respectfully, always", Damon told host Michael Strahan. He added, "Let's stop having meetings in hotel rooms, you can have it in the restaurant downstairs".

"I wouldn't want to be married to the guy".

"I knew he was a womaniser", Damon said.

The actor weighed in on the mounting allegations of sexual assault and harassment against the disgraced Hollywood producer on the morning show Monday alongside George Clooney.

The Martian star landed his big break with Weinstein and his former production company, Miramax, after they picked up the rights to Good Will Hunting, the Oscar-winning 1997 drama Damon had co-written with his longtime pal Ben Affleck.

"She was, you know, the first lady of Miramax".

Mattis: Report that Trump Wanted Tenfold Nuclear Increase 'Absolutely False' and 'Irresponsible'
However, Trump took to Twitter Wednesday and denied the allegations, saying it's "pure fiction, made up to demean". Trump's "comments raised questions about his familiarity with the nuclear posture and other issues".

The Suburbicon director revealed that his twins Ella and Alexander were backstage and after some prodding from Kimmel and the roaring approval from the audience, Clooney agreed to bring them out for their television debut. "I knew he was an a--".

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. Paltrow herself opened up about the alleged incident to the New York Times this month. He said, "And I didn't think they were going to have affairs with Harvey, quite honestly".

However, Damon and Clooney confessed that they had no clue about the extent of the sexual harassment that allegedly took place.

"My wife is a very smart, very together, very accomplished human rights lawyer, and she said 'there have been plenty of times in my life, in the law community I had to tell someone to knock it off.' So it happens everywhere", Clooney told "Extra" in a recent interview.

Earlier in the interview, Damon mentioned that Weinstein's reputation for strong-arming those in the industry was well-known.

"Listen, I'm scared to death, it's terrifying", he said of navigating parenthood, adding, "You're afraid of breaking them. These things are cyclical... but also that these things are fixable and we will fix them again". "And in doing that, I think that will scare away that kind of behavior". Clooney said it was "infuriating" for him to read stories about reporters who investigated the scandal.
