Matt Damon says he knew that Weinstein harassed Patrow

Image
Hollywood star Matt Damon has revealed that he knew that media mogul Harvey Weinstein had sexually harassed Gwyneth Paltrow.

The 47-year-old star had initially dismissed the reports that he knew about the disgraced producer's misconduct towards women when the scandal first broke out.
In an appearance on "Good Morning America", Damon said that he learned Weinstein had abused Paltrow from his friend Ben Affleck, who was in a relationship with her.


"I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben because he was with her after Brad, so I knew that story. But I was working with Gwyneth with Harvey on 'Ripley'. I never talked to Gwyneth about it. Ben told me.
"I knew that they had come to whatever agreement or understanding that they had come to. She had handled it and she was the first lady of Miramax. He treated her incredibly respectfully. Always," the actor said.


Damon, however, said that Weinstein's womanising nature was known to the industry.

Washington (CNN)Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks on Saturday night urged the importance of understanding and learning from history, especially for those troubled by the current state of affairs.

"People are upset about what's going on today. They're furious, they're frustrated, they're worked up," Hanks said. "If you're concerned about what's going on today, read history and figure out what to do because it's all right there."

Hanks was honored by the National Archives Foundation with the "Records of Achievement Award" at their annual gala in Washington.

"We had a read-through last week in fact, so I know everything now," Harington said, poking fun at his character famously being told "You know nothing", in an episode. "I cried at the end. You have to remember that eight years of it - no one really cares about it more than us."

Film Review: Pixar’s ‘Coco’

Conceived as a vibrant celebration of Mexican culture, writer-director Lee Unkrich’s “Coco” is the 19th feature from Pixar Animation Studios and the first to seriously deal with the deficit of nonwhite characters in its films — so far limited to super-sidekick Frozone in “The Incredibles,” tagalong Russell in “Up” and Mindy Kaling’s green-skinned Disgust in “Inside Out.” It’s a point worth making from the outset, not so much for political reasons (although they matter) but to indicate how this effective yet hardly exceptional addition to the oeuvre finds at least one significant front on which to innovate, even while coloring comfortably within the lines on practically everything else.

Like Remy, the rodent hero of “Ratatouille” who dreamed of working in a French restaurant, 12-year-old Miguel Rivera (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez) has just one passion in life: He wants to play the guitar. Unfortunately for him, Miguel belongs to a family of humble shoemakers where music has been forbidde…
