Harvey Weinstein: Matt Damon denies 'killing' 2004 story

Over the weekend, The Wrap founder Sharon Waxman wrote that she investigated rumors of Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct for a New York Times story in 2004 but saw her story "gutted" due to heavy pressure from Weinstein, including phone calls from Matt Damon and Russell Crowe vouching for him and others in the company. He told the publication that his conversation with Waxman was a "one minute phone call" specifically about one of Weinstein's Italian associates.

In the video, which was posted on YouTube a year ago, Kimmel explains the rules to women, saying, "I've stuffed something in my trousers, and you're allowed to feel around, and you'll have 10 seconds to guess what's in my trousers".

"As I recall, her piece just said that Russell and I had called and relayed our experience with Fabrizio", said Damon.

"That was Harvey's attempt to beat the story back", she said. He said the producer asked him to "tell her that he was a professional and you had a good experience, and that was it". I was never conscripted to do anything. Trump tweeted. "Should we get Equal Time?". It didn't even make the piece that she wrote.

The accusations that have now come out against Weinstein are "the kind of sexual predation that keeps me up at night", Damon said, adding that he had never seen inappropriate behaviour during time spent making films with Weinstein.

In the same interview, the actor said that he had no prior knowledge of Weinstein's actions.

"I think a lot of actors have come out and said, "everybody's saying we all knew".

"I did five or six movies with Harvey. I feel frightful for these women and it's wonderful they have this incredible courage and are standing up now".
