Matt Damon and George Clooney were guests on Monday's "Good Morning America" when Damon admitted that "I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben because he was with her after Brad [Pitt]", Entertainment Tonight reported.

"I knew that story. I didn't really necessarily believe that because to believe that would believe bad things about actresses that I know and like, and I didn't really buy into that", he recalled. And she said. she could find, you know, in her line of work, which is human rights law. there have been plenty of instances where some guy has tried, you know, to make their move,"George Clooney stated". But this level of sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on.

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.

The Cambridge native, who has been feeling some heat because of his formerly close ties to Weinstein, asserts he had no idea about what was allegedly happening to the close to 60 women who have gone public with sexual misconduct accusations against Weinstein.

Instead, Clooney and the stars of the film, Matt Damon and Julianne Moore, commented on the ongoing fallout following claims of sexual harrassment in Hollywood. "I talked with my wife [Amal] about this".

The actor Only on March, knew the character of Harvey Weinstein as well as his taste for women, but for the rest, he fell out of the clouds: "When people say that all the world knew, yes I knew it was a hole in the c**!" "And [Weinstein] treated her incredibly respectfully, always".

Damon clarified what he knew to GMA host, Michael Strahan. #Gwyneth Paltrow also came forward, telling the New York Times that at 22 years of age, Weinstein made unwanted advances at his suite at the Peninsula Beverly Hills.

Damon first worked with Weinstein on his first movie, the critically-accailmed "Good Will Hunting", which shot Damon into stardom. He just brushed off Weinstein's lurid gossip as his own version of locker-room talk. She married Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in 2003, having ended the relationship with Affleck in 2000.

You'd never know they were the parents to four-month-old twins!

His comments come after more than 40 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment or sexual assault, with the allegations spanning decades. It's ironic because Suburbicon apparently falls into that exhausted Hollywood cliché genre that portrays suburban America - especially in the 1950s - as a seething cauldron of sexism, racism, abuse, and insanity under a deceptive veneer of prosperity and peace.

Matt Damon is backtracking on his claims he knew nothing of Harvey Weinstein's alleged behavior of sexual harassment and assault.

Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns... the flawless place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that.

George Clooney is typically one to avoid drama.

Damon continued to tell his side of the story. Thus far, critics aren't terribly impressed either.
