"I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben (Affleck) because he was with her after Brad (Pitt) ...", Damon said. But I knew that they had come to whatever, you know, agreement or understanding that they had come to, she had handled it. He was proud of that.

"When people say 'everybody knew (about the sex allegations)' - yeah, I knew he was an a**hole".

"But...the criminal sexual predation is not something that ever thought...was going on". Gwyneth Paltrow told The New York Times that when she was 22, Weinstein ended a work meeting by placing his hands on her and suggesting they go to his bedroom for massages.

Clooney added that Weinstein would talk to him about women he'd had affairs with, although he didn't necessarily believe the producer because to do so "would be to believe the worst of some actresses who were friends of mine". "And he treated her incredibly respectfully, always", Damon told host Michael Strahan. And I knew he was a womaniser.

The Oscar-winner said that problems of sexual assault and abuse aren't just confined to the film industry, telling ET while promoting new movie Suburbicon: "She's [Amal] faced those exact kinds of situations in law". He was signed to a three-picture deal with Miramax quickly after that but immediately knew that Weinstein wasn't someone he wanted to cross paths with again.

Klay Thompson was the only other player to score in double digits for the Warriors , tallying 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting. After the game, Curry told an ESPN reporter that he did not throw his mouthpiece directly at Wall.

George Clooney says the sexual harassment epidemic stretches far beyond Hollywood - and even his wife Amal, a human rights attorney, has been affected. "I knew he was an a--".

Both actors said they had no idea about the allegations despite Harvey Weinstein being pivotal in launching both of their careers.

"I didn't really think that they were going to have affairs with Harvey, quite honestly", Clooney said.

Also during his appearance, Clooney brought out Suburbicon star Matt Damon as part of a prank to debut the twins to the public. According to the story, Pitt, Paltrow's then-boyfriend, confronted Weinstein after the alleged incident. "Right now I feel like my kids are innocent and don't have to deal with this stuff and I'm certainly concerned that at some point we'll all have to address it together".

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.
