Matt Damon Interrupts Chris Hemsworth's Interview with Jimmy Kimmel

Matt Damon Interrupts Chris Hemsworth's Interview with Jimmy Kimmel

"I did five or six movies with Harvey".

Although the White House denies the story, Kimmel pointed to reports that chief of staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and only sticking it out to prevent Trump running rampant and driving the country off a cliff.

Jessica Chastain, with whom Damon had worked on The Martian, tweeted alongside the story about him: "This is heart shattering". Because of this, she describes herself as feeling ambivalent in light of the praise that has been showered upon The New York Times, which she believes enabled Weinstein's sickening actions. "I'm on! I made it", he celebrated.

The accusations that have now come out against Weinstein are "the kind of sexual predation that keeps me up at night", Damon said, adding that he had never seen inappropriate behaviour during time spent making films with Weinstein.

Damon has since tried to clarify the situation, explaining his side of the story to Deadline.

My recollection was that it was about a one minute phone call. Kimmel asked, to which Hemsworth responded, "I feel sorry for him".

Waxman corroborated Damon's statement, writing on Twitter, "I endorse Matt Damon's statement". So, anyway, note to DJTJ, next time you're defending your father and you think it's a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly-accused sexual predator?

She said Damon and Russell Crowe called her to vouch for the employee. "I was warned from the beginning", she wrote. "He called me briefly, wasn't informed - nor should he have been - about investigative aspect of piece".
