I knew he was an a**hole.

Damon opened up to Michael Strahan about his history with Weinstein and said everyone knew he was a "bully".

"You had to spend five minutes with him to know he was a bully, he was intimidating".

"I never talked to Gwyneth about it but Ben told me that whatever or agreement they had come to there was an understanding. and he treated her incredibly respectfully", he continued.

Paltrow is one of dozens of actresses who've come forward in recent weeks with stories of sexual misconduct involving Weinstein. "That was his whole M.O". Back then she was 22 and was dating Brad Pitt.

The Martian star landed his big break with Weinstein and his former production company, Miramax, after they picked up the rights to Good Will Hunting, the Oscar-winning 1997 drama Damon had co-written with his longtime pal Ben Affleck.

Shakespeare in Love star Gwyneth Paltrow recently came forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein, third from left, of making an unwanted sexual advance toward her early in her career. "Always", Damon said on the show. "I thought it was interesting to talk about things like building walls and scapegoating minorities". "That's not true. This type of predation happens behind closed doors, and out of public view".

According to Paltrow, Weinstein met her at a hotel just before she started shooting for the 1996 film adaptation of Jane Austen's "Extra". "And I knew he was a womanizer".
