George Clooney Dishes on Twins' Personalities, and Has Strong Words on Weinstein Scandal

Absolutely not. I knew the story about Gwyneth [Paltrow] from Ben [Affleck] because he was with her after Brad [Pitt]. "Ben told me, 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, yeah, I knew that he was an asshole", the actor continued. It's all over the world and I don't think we want to reach a conclusion, what we want to do is empower women to speak out about what's going on and let them know that they're not alone and this is behaviour that should not be acceptable.

George Clooney is appalled no one came forward with the truth about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assault and harassment stories years ago.

Clooney says Weinstein had boosted about his affairs with other actress but he never believed him. "That was his whole M.O. Like, could you survive a meeting with Harvey?"

"When Amal and I met and when we got married it became really clear we were lucky..." And I knew he was a womaniser.

The two movie stars addressed the sexual abuse allegations against the producer while promoting their movie Suburbicon.

"The fact that the story is coming out now and the more it comes out, I want to know all of it", he said on GMA.

Weinstein, who has issued an apology for his actions, is also facing an investigation by the New York Police Department into an allegation of sexual assault in 2004.

However, he already knew about Weinstein's sexual harassment of Paltrow by this time.

Earlier in the interview, Damon mentioned that Weinstein's reputation for strong-arming those in the industry was well-known. He later confronted Weinstein, who then when back to Paltrow and told her never to tell anyone what happened between them again. He was intimidating. That was part of who he was. "They are who we all should be thinking about". "And in doing that, I think that'll scare away that kind of behavior", Clooney said.

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.
