Matt Damon appears as George Clooney's nanny on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Matt Damon appears as George Clooney's nanny on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'”

Matt Damon says he's been asking himself whether there's anything he could have done to stop Harvey Weinstein. "Did I see something?"

"I've been reading these stories because I am racking my brain", Matt Damon told NBC in an interview that aired Tuesday on the "Today" show.

Being astounded by the sudden appearance of Damon, Jimmy said that the audiences were cheering for the babies and not Damon and asked,"Who let him in here?" Could I have known something? I never talked to Gwyneth about it.

Damon's words echo another famous man in Hollywood who admitted to knowing about specific instances of abuse - director Quentin Tarantino. Paltrow was dating Brad Pitt at the time, and Pitt evidently confronted Weinstein about this, although he continued to work with Weinstein on two movies after the alleged incident.

Just over two weeks since Rose McGowan publicly accused Matt and Ben of being aware of Harvey Weinstein's behaviour and subsequently keeping quiet about it, Matt opens up about precisely what he did know about the disgraced producer. (We can only assume Damon meant that Weinstein was respectful to Paltrow while in front of him).

Paltrow is one of over 40 women who have accused Weinstein of sexually harassment or sexually assault in a scandal spanning three decades. "They're so little", he said as reported by People Magazine. And I knew he was a womanizer. But this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on. And hey, we can also appreciate a good joke.

"He didn't do it out in the open", Damon said.
