POPCORN WITH PETER TRAVERS & MATT DAMON


Matt Damon On Popcorn With Peter Travers





During a taping of ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers,” Matt Damon opened up in a wide-ranging discussion about Harvey Weinstein and others inside and outside the entertainment world who have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct this year. His full interview will be available to watch beginning Wednesday, December 27, on ABCNews.com/popcorn, the ABC News apps and on streaming platforms including AppleTV, Roku, Xbox One and Hulu.






Matt Damon opens up about Harvey Weinstein, sexual harassment and confidentiality agreements.



Matt Damon addressed the sexual allegations against Harvey Weinstein, saying, “I knew I wouldn’t want him married to anyone close to me.”



“But that was the extent of what we knew. I mean, and that wasn’t a surprise to anybody. So when you hear Harvey this, Harvey that — I mean, look at the guy. Of course he’s a womanizer,” Damon continued in an interview for ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers.”



Damon, who stars in the upcoming film “Downsizing,” worked with Weinstein on his Oscar-winning film “Good Will Hunting,” which was produced by Weinstein’s production company Miramax.



In the past year, several women have publicly accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct. Weinstein has acknowledged inappropriate behavior but has denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.



“Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. Mr. Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances,” his spokesman previously said.



In a wide-ranging discussion with Travers on Tuesday, Damon opened up about Weinstein and others inside and outside the entertainment world who have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct this year.



Read part of Damon’s conversation with Travers below.



Peter Travers: We live now in a different age, in a political age. There’s a lot of dissidence that goes on in the world that could affect you as an actor. We’re also in the age of people charged with sexual misconduct. This is everywhere. How do you react to that? Especially you, as the father of four girls.



Matt Damon: I think we’re in this watershed moment. I think it’s great. I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories, and it’s totally necessary … I do believe that there’s a spectrum of behavior, right? And we’re going to have to figure — you know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right? You know, we see somebody like Al Franken, right? — I personally would have preferred if they had an Ethics Committee investigation, you know what I mean? It’s like at what point — you know, we’re so energized to kind of get retribution, I think.



And we live in this culture of outrage and injury, and, you know, that we’re going to have to correct enough to kind of go, “Wait a minute. None of us came here perfect.” You know what I mean? … The Louis C.K. thing, I don’t know all the details. I don’t do deep dives on this, but I did see his statement, which kind of, which [was] arresting to me. When he came out and said, “I did this. I did these things. These women are all telling the truth.” And I just remember thinking, “Well, that’s the sign of somebody who — well, we can work with that” … Like, when I’m raising my kids, this constant personal responsibility is as important as anything else they learn before they go off in the world.



And the fear for me is that right now, we’re in this moment where at the moment — and I hope it doesn’t stay this way — the clearer signal to men and to younger people is, deny it. Because if you take responsibility for what you did, your life’s going to get ruined …



I mean, look, as I said, all of that behavior needs to be confronted, but there is a continuum. And on this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that’s prison. Right? And that’s what needs to happen. OK? And then we can talk about rehabilitation and everything else. That’s criminal behavior, and it needs to be dealt with that way. The other stuff is just kind of shameful and gross, and I just think … I don’t know Louis C.K.. I’ve never met him. I’m a fan of his, but I don’t imagine he’s going to do those things again. You know what I mean? I imagine the price that he’s paid at this point is so beyond anything that he — I just think that we have to kind of start delineating between what these behaviors are.



PT: It’s harder, isn’t it, though, when you actually know someone who gets accused? We both know Harvey Weinstein. I’ve worked with him. But I didn’t see any of this.



MD: When you see Al Franken taking a picture putting his hands on that woman’s flak jacket and mugging for the camera, going like that, you know, that is just like a terrible joke, and it’s not funny. It’s wrong, and he shouldn’t have done that … But when you talk about Harvey and what he’s accused of, there are no pictures of that. He knew he was up to no good. There’s no witnesses. There’s no pictures. There’s no braggadocio … So they don’t belong in the same category.



PT: I think it becomes for all of us, too, that are in any way around it, even though we’re not seeing it, is, what’s our responsibility to make sure it doesn’t happen?



MD: A lot of people said, ‘Well, Harvey — everybody knew.’ As you were saying, that’s not true. Everybody knew what kind of guy he was in the sense that if you took a meeting with him, you knew that he was tough and he was a bully, and that was his reputation. And he enjoyed that reputation, because he was making the best movies out there …



[With regard to the rape allegations,] nobody who made movies for him knew … Any human being would have put a stop to that, no matter who he was. They would’ve said absolutely no. You know what I mean? … I knew I wouldn’t want him married to anyone close to me. But that was the extent of what we knew, you know? And that wasn’t a surprise to anybody. So when you hear Harvey this, Harvey that — I mean, look at the guy. Of course he’s a womanizer … I mean, I don’t hang out with him.


PT: But you can’t live his life for him. Or be responsible for his life.



MD: Right. So the question is, at what point does somebody’s behavior that you have a professional relationship with … away from the profession bother enough that you don’t want to work with them? For me, I’ve always kind of, you know, as long as nobody’s committing a crime — well, that’s your life, and you go live it. I don’t need to be spending time with you, away from my professional life, at least.

ASHLEY JUDD & KRISH VIGNARAJAH HARASSMENT PLAN

Ashley Judd



Yesterday, Ashley Judd helped Krish Vignarajah, formerly First Lady Michelle Obama’s policy director who is now running for Maryland Governor, release a bold plan to combat sexual harassment and violence by taking aim at government, businesses, and schools.



“Sexual predators exploit a culture of silence and impunity driven by differences in power and status,” said Ashley Judd, actor and humanitarian. “Krish’s policy will both help shed light on rampant sexual harassment and create concrete solutions that improve gender norms.”



Under the proposal, for the first time ever, all individuals seeking public office or state funding in Maryland would be required to disclose if they have engaged in sexual harassment or violence. The policy will also address sexual harassment in schools and create the first dedicated Office of Sexual Assault to investigate reports and support survivors.



Ashley is an advisor to Krish and played an integral part in the development of this strategy.



PRESS RELEASE



BALTIMORE, Maryland – Gubernatorial Candidate Krish Vignarajah released a comprehensive, first-in-the-nation plan to combat sexual harassment and sexual violence in Maryland. Committed to ending the culture of misogyny and its toxic effects in business and government and on school and college campuses, Krish announced a bold proposal to (1) create an Office of Sexual Harassment and Violence charged with incentivizing independent audits of harassment in government and business workplaces, certifying gold-standard employers, ensuring wraparound services for survivors, and supporting law enforcement to end the rape kit backlog; (2) require disclosure to confirm those seeking public employment or state business have no history of sexual harassment and violence; and (3) ensure that all college, high school and middle school students—not just men—are educated early and often about robust concepts of consent.

DONNA KARAN DEFENDS DEFENSE OF HARVEY WEINSTEIN

****
DIRTY HARVEY
****



Donna Karan Is Sorry





Fashion designer Donna Karan said the comments she made in the immediate aftermath of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal that suggested women were "asking for it" by how they dressed were a "huge mistake."



"I want to say how sorry I am," Karan said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Robin Roberts. "What I said is so wrong and not who I am."



When asked what she meant by her comments at the time, Karan said simply that she "made a huge, huge mistake."


This month, dozens of women have spoken out against Weinstein, 65, accusing the Hollywood producer of sexual misconduct, and in some cases even assault and rape.



Weinstein's spokesman has previously said in a statement "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied" by the former head of the Weinstein Company.



At an event shortly after the news first broke, Karan responded to the headlines by telling a reporter, on camera, that women may be asking for "trouble" by how they dressed.



"How do we display ourselves, how do we present ourselves as women, what are we asking? Are we asking for it, you know, by presenting all the sensuality and all the sexuality?" she said.



She continued: "It's not Harvey Weinstein. You look at everything all over the world today, you know, and how women are dressing and, you know, what they're asking by just presenting themselves the way they do. What are they asking for? Trouble."


Her comments soon drew a firestorm of backlash online.



Actress Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of rape, slammed the fashion designer as "deplorable" in a tweet, saying that "aiding and abetting is a moral crime."



Karan told Roberts that she supports and cares about other women, and considers herself a champion of women's rights.


"I love women. I absolutely adore women," Karan added. "I care about them. I'm a mother, I'm a grandmother. You know, and I've never done this before, and I will never, ever do it again."



When asked if she thought women bear any responsibility for the allegations that they have made, Karan responded with "it is against women's rights."



"As a woman, for women, I want to bring out who that woman is. I mean, that's my passion. I still do this for over 40 years, as we know. I want women to feel like women, and have that right."


Karan said she was "exhausted" when she made her Weinstein comments that soon became embroiled in controversy.


"I had just ... come from a 14-hour plane trip," she said. "I walked into a situation that I wasn't prepared for in any circumstances whatsoever."


Karan added that she did not know the full extent of the accusations against the Hollywood producer when she initially commented on the news.


"I had been away for a month and a half," she said. "I heard a whisper, but there were whispers all over. ... It wasn't till a day and a half after that I truly heard about it. That's my honest truth. I didn't know."


In the aftermath of Karan's comments on Weinstein, some have responded on social media saying that they will no longer wear her fashion designs. Actress Mia Farrow said in a tweet that was liked more than 10,000 times, "No more Donna Karan for me."


In addition, the stock price of G-III, which owns Donna Karan's fashion company, dropped shortly after her remarks, according to The Associated Press.



Karan said that she is not apologizing simply to save her brand.



"It's not about my brand," she said. "I started Urban Zen because I did not want to just be a designer. It was about dressing and addressing the issues at hand, in healthcare, in education, in culture.
"I want to bring us all together as a team to face the world that we're faced with today," she added.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN WANTED TO BE A ROLLING STONE

****
 DIRTY HARVEY !
 
New York Post “Page Six” Editor, Emily Smith, reveals Harvey Weinstein tried to buy Rolling Stone on yesterdays episode of “Page Six TV.”
****
Harvey Weinstein



Before his sexual harassment scandal broke, Harvey Weinstein was trying to put together a deal to buy the legendary Rolling Stone magazine, Page Six has exclusively learned.



With Weinstein now out of the way in rehab, “Page Six TV” revealed that bidders for Jann Wenner’s venerable publication now include famed former Live Nation Entertainment executive chairman and Eagles manager Irving Azoff who’s putting together a $30 million plus offer backed by Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan.



Sources tell us there are around 30 bidders, including Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge, Variety owner Jay Penske and American Media, Inc. boss David Pecker. Though a source said, “The Wenners really don’t want to give Rolling Stone to AMI even though Pecker bought Us Weekly from them.”



While recent reports said disgraced Weinstein landed a $4 million crisis mortgage on his $15 million Manhattan townhouse to fund his brewing legal battles — sources tell us that the money was actually arranged months before his scandal hit as he was putting together funds and a consortium to buy Rolling Stone.



But the Weinstein Rolling Stone bid was dropped once accusations against him started piling up after the bombshell pieces in the New York Times and New Yorker. Azoff — also known as the uber-connected manager of Christina Aguilera — already has a joint venture with Dolan, Azoff MSG Entertainment, which they launched in 2013.



Wenner started Rolling Stone in 1967 and announced he was putting it up for sale last month after his son Gus Wenner, 27, succeeded him as president/COO. Wenner’s already sold a 49-percent stake in the mag to BandLab for a reported $40 million and sources say that bids for the controlling interest were due on Thursday for between $20 million and $40 million, but Wenner sources say the valuation is “significantly higher.”


Vanity Fair reported at the time the sale was announced that a Wenner Media financial document seen by the magazine “suggest Rolling Stone will sell for a fraction of what the magazine might have commanded in its heyday.”


Reps for Rolling Stone, Weinstein and Azoff didn’t comment.

DIRTY HARVEY WEINSTEIN NOT TAKING CLAIMS SERIOUSLY

****
DIRTY HARVEY!
****

Harvey Weinstein With Wife Georgina Chapman




Harvey Weinstein is receiving both inpatient and outpatient treatment amid the numerous sexual assault and harassment allegations against him, E! News has learned.



A spokesperson for the producer confirmed the news to E! News on Saturday, following recent reports that he was seeking treatment.



"Mr. Weinstein is receiving inpatient as well as outpatient medical treatment for the next month or so," the spokesperson said.



No further details were given and the producer's whereabouts were not made known.



Over the past couple of week, at least 50 women have accused the produce of sexual misconduct and six of them, including Rose McGowan and Italian star and xXx cast member Asia Argento, say he raped her. Weinstein has apologized for past treatment of colleagues but denies allegations of non-consensual sex.



Police in Los Angeles, New York and London are investigating several sexual misconduct allegations. Weinstein has not been charged with a crime. The controversy has cost his him job, his marriage and many of his honors.



Last week, after reports say Weinstein was headed to rehab, paparazzi encountered him outside the Los Angeles home of one of his daughters.



"I'm hanging in, I'm trying my best," he said at the time. "Guys, I'm not doing OK but I'm trying."



"I gotta get help, guys," he said, as seen in a video posted on TMZ. "You know what, we all make mistakes, second chance I hope."



A day later, Weinstein was spotted in Arizona, dining with friends.



On Friday, a source told E! News that the producer was still in the state and "going to an outpatient center during the day" and staying at a hotel, adding, "He isn't taking things seriously at all and is more concerned about business and his next moves. He is just going through the motions with counseling and doesn't seem concerned at all about what's to come."



Weinstein has not commented.



TMZ reported that day that Weinstein had completed a one-week outpatient program to treat psychological issues and was leaving the state.



News of Weinstein undergoing inpatient treatment also comes a week after TMZ reported that authorities responded to a 911 call made by his daughter Remy to "say her dad was suicidal." Police told E! News they had arrived at the house in response to a "family disturbance" but could not confirm the call was about Weinstein.



A friend of Weinstein told Page Six that the producer is not suicidal, but "his heart is breaking for his kids."

STATEMENT ON HARVEY WEINSTEIN BY ANNA WILDING

DIRTY HARVEY

Anna Wilding





Actress Anna Wilding released the following statement about allegations on Harvey Weinstein today.



Dirty Harvey Weinstein
Everyone knew about Harvey. I myself had several occasions dealing with Miramax.One year at Cannes Film Festival 2 male colleagues stepped in and physically shielded me from Harvey when we were about to go up on an elevator together. I was one of the women who stood up and said No to men for this kind of behavior. I walked away from it, from major contracts. It disgusts me to read the lengths Harvey went to. Assault is reprehensible. Harvey is not alone in his behavior. There were and are others. And everyone knew and knows. Sadly some girls Were complicit, or worse assaulted. If you are one of those who said No like me You suffered. Saying No cost me my acting career, income  and denied me opportunities.I have been assaulted before. It's not pleasant.

LEGEND HARVEY WEINSTEIN IS COMING OUT SWINGING

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G. H. HARDING
****
Harvey Weinstein



Mitchell Hospitalized --- Joni Mitchell has been treated in an intensive care unit at a Los Angeles hospital. The Grammy award-winning folk singer is in “fair condition,” said authorities after paramedics were called to her Bel Air home. Her website, jonimitchell.com, released the following statement: “Joni was found unconscious in her home this afternoon. She regained consciousness on the ambulance ride to an LA area hospital. She is currently in intensive care undergoing tests and is awake and in good spirits. More updates to come as we hear them. Light a candle and sing a song, let’s all send good wishes her way.”



Mitchell, 71, was found by paramedics around 2.30pm Pacific Time on Tuesday after an emergency call from her house.



In 2014, Mitchell released a career-spanning four-disc box set and appeared at Clive Davis’s annual pre-Grammy party in February.



She has received eight Grammy awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.



The singer-songwriter told Billboard magazine in December 2014 that she has a rare skin condition that prevents her from performing live.



Mitchell is a towering figure in music history, and still stands as a major force. From her song “Woodstock” to her exemplary music and painting over the years, she remains a major light. All the best.



HARVEY SCISSORHANDS? --- This story going ’round that movie mogul Harvey Weinstein had some sort of inappropriate encounter with a girl is pure, allegedly pure hogwash. 



Everyone’s written about it, but perhaps the best and most detailed account comes from our colleague (and burgeoning rock star) Roger Friedman yesterday in his “must-read” Showbiz 411 column.



Turns out that this pretty young thing was also involved in the Silvio Berlusconi brouhaha over in Italy . . . which was ultimately overturned in his favor.



Word of advice to the pretty young thing: You definitely picked the wrong one here. I predict that Harvey will not only go after her, but have her banished 4-ever!



I’m not a fan of the man, but he does have taste and a scandal like this is so far away from what he would or could do. He'll make an example of her.



I almost feel sorry for her (almost!).



NINE LIVES “EXCLUSIVE” --- Christopher Walken is joining Kevin Spacey in a high-concept comedy Nine Lives, to be directed by Barry (Men in Black) Sonnenfeld.



In the pic, a workaholic businessman (Spacey) must figure out how to redeem himself after a terrible accident leaves him trapped in the body of his family’s cat. Walken plays Felix Grant, the owner of a mystical pet shop, who assists the businessman during his feline time of stress.



This is the first time that Walken and Spacey have worked together onscreen in a feature film (in fact, Spacey is known for his killer Walken impersonation) . . . and I predict we will see that impersonation in the final cut of the film.



CLOSING NOTES --- Madonna’s “Ghosttown,” which she performed on Sunday’s iHeart Music Awards show, was simply terrific. With Taylor Swift on guitar, this is the track I liked the most from the one-time Material Girl’s new album. Just sensational. Btw: She and Swift make quite the duo. No kissing, just pure music. Actually, theirs was the best performance on what was an otherwise somewhat dreadful show. Aside from Madonna and Swift, that awards show made the Oscars look like pure gold by comparison . . .



Am loving the Ringo Starr cover story in the current issue of Rolling Stone. Stephen Rodrick did a stellar job. Not quite the questions I would have asked, but most enjoyable. His new album was promised by his PR-people last week; still haven't received, though . . .



Listening party next week for actress-turned-songstress Gloria Reuben at the Metropolitan Room and her new album, Perchance to Dream (MCG Records). Expected guests include Jersey Boys’ Donnie Kehr and Robert Funaro from The Sopranos ...



Two-time Oscar winning director Ang Lee is one busy man these days . . . having written an enthusiastic Foreword to writer/humorist Elliot Tiber’s just-published and already-well-received memoir, After Woodstock (in which Lee explains how he came to direct his 2009 film of Tiber’s first book, Taking Woodstock), Lee is now gearing up to direct a 3-D film adaptation of Ben Fountain’s Iraq War-themed novel Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. The film has just added the one and only Steve Martin to its cast, and early talk is that this may be one of the most interesting and thought-provoking war-themed films ever made. Of course, this is not the first time Ang has made a film featuring a warrior named “Billy.” In Taking Woodstock, actor Emile Hirsch played a young Vietnam war vet named “Billy.” Mere coincidence or part of this masterful filmmaker’s master plan? We’ll see…

HARVEY WEINSTEIN LOVES LINDSAY LOHAN

Lindsay Lohan's acting career has been given a boost by movie tycoon Harvey Weinstein. Weinstein, who worked with the 'Mean Girls' actress on 'Bobby', believes Lindsay is "wonderful talent" and insists he would be happy to hire her after she leaves rehab.When asked if her would hire Lindsay - who is currently staying at Utah's Cirque Lodge detox centre - again, Weinstein replied: "Of course. She's a wonderful actress. She did a great job in 'Bobby'. Lindsay is a wonderful talent."I just hope that Lindsay is fine. She's a good lady."The producer also believes that 21-year-old Lindsay will grow out of her problems.He added: "You know, we keep forgetting they're kids. They're making mistakes. Hopefully, they'll clean it up and somebody will kick their butts."Last week, Lindsay admitted she is addicted to drugs and alcohol.The actress admitted she is "ashamed" of her recent behaviour and accepts she is out of control.She said: "It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs. Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed."The star made the statement shortly after reaching a plea deal for two counts of DUI (driving under the influence), two counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance and a reckless driving charge on Thursday.
