Matt Damon

Wiki info

In October and December 2017, Damon made headlines when he made a series of comments regarding a large movement of backlash against sexual harassment and misconduct. On October 10th, Sharon Waxman, a reporter for TheWrap, mentioned that Damon, along with Russell Crowe, made direct phone calls to her to vouch for the head of Miramax Italy, Fabrizio Lombardo. In her report, she suspected Lombardo of facilitating incidents of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misconduct in Europe. [106][107][108] However, Damon clarified later that the calls were solely to reassure of her of Lombardo's professional qualifications in the film industry. Waxman endorsed Damon’s statement on Twitter hours later. [109] Also during this time, Damon revealed that he had heard a story from Ben Affleck that Weinstein had sexually harassed a co-worker on a feature film of his, Gwyneth Paltrow, in 1996. However, he decided not to disclose the story publicly, because he had not heard it first-hand, Weinstein's relationship with Paltrow seemed professional at the time, and reports indicated that they "handled it".
