This sounds like damage control!

Matt Damon and George Clooney appeared on GMA this morning to promote their new film Suburbicon, but talk inevitably turned to the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Damon admitted his pal Ben Affleck told him about then-girlfriend Gwyneth Paltrow's sexual harassment by the studio boss, but both actors didn't realize the severity of the problem.

“I knew the story about Gwyneth from Ben because he was with her after [her relationship with] Brad [Pitt]. I never talked to Gwyneth about it. Ben told me. But 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. And he treated her incredibly respectfully, always," Damon told host Michael Strahan.

"When people say, ‘Everybody knew,’ like yeah, I knew he was an a–hole. He was proud of that. That’s how he carried himself. I knew he was a womanizer. You know, I wouldn’t want to be married to the guy. But that’s not my business really. This level of criminal sexual predation was not something I ever thought was going on," he added.

Clooney then added that he's talked to his wife Amal about her experiences with sexual harassment in the workplace.

"She could find in her line of work … there have been plenty of instances where some guy has tried to make their move. Many, if not most, women have at some point in their life faced this kind of behavior. I think that’s a little bit of a surprise to some of us. That it’s this big. Maybe that’s something else that’s good that comes out of this, is that … we’re going to have these discussions. We’re going to have this conversation. And again we’re going to make it harder for it to happen," the Ocean's Eleven actor explained.

This all just feels so rehearsed.
