George Clooney: 'Amal has faced sexual harassment at work'

But I knew that they had come to whatever, you know, agreement or understanding that they had come to, she handled it. He was proud of that.

He adds, "I want to know what sort of ad dollars were spent from The Weinstein Company. because we should have known this".

"But this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on".

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.

Clooney, who has always been a strong advocate for women's rights, admitted he knew Weinstein bragged about having affairs with women who were his friends or colleagues.

On October 10, Damon told Deadline, "I did five or six movies with Harvey". It was his legend, it was his mode of operation, like "Can you survive an encounter with Harvey?"

Ironically, the two stars gave this interview as part of their promotional tour for Suburbicon, their new film produced by the Coen brothers, directed by Clooney, and starring Damon. Also thrown into the conversation are actors Ben Affleck and #Matt Damon, who frequently collaborated with Weinstein. She was the First Lady of Miramax, and he treated her incredibly respectfully.

As the story unfolds now, Clooney said, he insisted that he wants to know "all of it".

Damon is only the fourth actor to publicly state that he was aware of at least one of the incidents of sexual allegations other than the victims.

"My wife is a very smart, very together, very accomplished human rights lawyer and she said, "There have been times in my life, in the law community, [that] I had to tell someone to knock it off, ' so it happens everywhere", George told Extra". Suburbicon star, and Kimmel's mortal enemy, Matt Damon had seemingly slipped security (Guillermo was off for the night) and made his way to the stage pushing a twin stroller.

Damon added that he believes Weinstein never engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior while in public, and also apologized if he had missed any blatant evidence of wrongdoing.

Harvey Weinstein, who just left his one-week pyschological treatment, is now under investigation by the LAPD, since more than 40 women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct and harrasment against him. We have to make it safe for people to feel that they can talk about this. I think a lot of actors have come out and said, everybody's saying we all knew.
