"It's not something I would do, for anybody".
A spokeswoman for Weinstein told CNN there would be no comment on Tuesday's New York Times story.
McGowan also called out Damon's frequent collaborator Ben Affleck, who issued a statement via Twitter on Tuesday.
According to Damon, he only had a one-minute phone call with Waxman about an article her former editor came out to deny that eventually written about Fabrizio Lombardo, as he was told by Weinstein that the Times was doing a hit piece on Lombardo.
It may be noted that Harvey Weinstein is the man who had agreed to produce Will Hunting, the first film of Matt Damon (co-written with Ben Affleck), and that had made him a star victor. He has organized our premiere in Italy and so I knew him in a professional capacity and I'd had dinner at his house. Weinstein told him that Waxman was writing a negative piece but made no mention of any sort of allegations of sexual misconduct, Damon said. I just wouldn't do that. She was told that the Miramar Italy executive was paid $400,000 a year, but had no experience in film and his main role was to help procure women for Weinstein to enjoy while in Europe.
"That was the extent of it and so I was very surprised to see it come back". "I was never conscripted to do anything".
Some readers have asked us about a piece by Sharon Waxman, a former reporter for The New York Times who went on to found the entertainment news website The Wrap.
Don't say Love Jihad every now and then: Kerala HC
The Kerala High Court which had recently annulled a inter-faith marriage has now said that every case can not be Love Jihad . The NIA is looking into aspects whether the organisation was actively involved in conversion of unsuspecting women to Islam.
The Times ran a story under Waxman's byline concerning a court case between Miramax and Lombardo, but no mention was made of any alleged impropriety by Weinstein. "I know he has crushed a lot of people before", she said.
"But the other part of this, the part we're hearing now about eight women being paid off, I didn't hear anything about that and I don't know anyone that did", said Clooney. "I have chosen to leave my husband", she said in a statement to People. He said, "I think that people weren't looking, because in some ways, a lecherous guy with money picking up younger girls is unfortunately not a news story in our society". The story is these women and what happened to them.
The father of four daughters did address the new Weinstein scandal, stating, "Even before I was famous, I didn't abide this kind of behaviour". It included the on-the-record accounts of numerous women who were harassed by Mr. Weinstein. "Mr. Weinstein has begun counseling, has listened to the community and is pursuing a better path. Mr. Weinstein is hoping that, if he makes enough progress, he will be given a second chance".
The actor, who filmed multiple movies for producer Weinstein, insists he never saw the mogul behaving badly. "That's not true", he stated.
"This type of predation happens behind closed door, and out of public view", he added.
"If there was ever an event that I was at and Harvey was doing this kind of thing and I didn't see it, then I am so deeply sorry, because I would have stopped it", Damon said.
"I will peel my eyes back now, farther than I ever have, to look for this type of behaviour. I feel terrible for these women and it's wonderful they have this incredible courage and are standing up now". "I just wouldn't do that".
Damon said he assumed Crowe was involved in the same scope.
