Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment, groping and rape scandal will bring down lots of A-list executives and celebrities in Hollywood and beyond.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has also been implicated of covering up rape allegations in order to help pal Harvey Weinstein.
In NY, Manhattan Attorney General Cyrus Vance Jr., killed the sexual assault investigation into Weinstein back in 2015, and then, by coincidence we are sure, Harvey’s lawyer, David Boies, donated $10,000 to Vance’s reelection campaign, the International Business Times reports.
Ben Affleck has been branded a hypocrite, liar, and breast grabbing creep by Rose McGowan.
Kevin Spacey has recently been accused by a top US broadcaster of assaulting a loved one.
Now it looks like two Harvey buddies and enablers, Matt Damon and George Clooney are in damage control mode, trying to explain away their knowledge of Harvey’s sexual crimes.
The hollywood A-list actors turn in an Oscar worthy performance on Good Morning America.
In a rare sit-down interview with Good Morning America, actors George Clooney and Matt Damon admit they knew about Harvey Weinstein’s predatory behavior towards women — but claim not to the extend to which it is being reported today.
Damon says pal Ben Affleck told him about Weinstein harassing Gwyneth Paltrow. Clooney reveals Weinstein would boast about his sexual conquests. They both knew enough to speak out, and yet, said nothing.
Daily Mail UK reports…
In an interview that aired on Monday morning, both men said that they knew Weinstein was a ‘bully’ and ‘womanizer’ who bragged of bedding actresses, but had no idea about the level of criminal behavior that was occurring behind closed doors in hotels.
Damon also confessed that he was aware Weinstein had sexually harassed ‘the first lady of Miramax’ Gwyneth Paltrow just before the actress shot the 1996 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ for the studio.
‘I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben [Affleck] because he was with her after Brad [Pitt] and so I knew that story,’ said Damon.
‘But I was working with Gwyneth and with Harvey on [the 1999 film “The Talented Mr.] Ripley.”
He then added: ‘ I never talked to Gwyneth about it but Ben told me that whatever or agreement they had come to there was an understanding … and he treated her incredibly respectfully. Always.’
