When asked about the incident, the "Good Will Hunting" actor admitted that he called the writer to inform her of his working experience with the actor-producer. "So I did, and that’s what I said to her," he said. "It didn’t even make the piece that she wrote."

He went on to clarify that he was never conscripted to do anything other than share his experience with Fabrizio Lombardo. Matt Damon also denied any knowledge of Harvey Weinstein's cases of alleged sexual assault in the past.

"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," he explained.

The father of three said he feels sorry for the alleged victims of these misconducts before he commended them for having the courage to speak up on the issue.

The actor is also hoping that this revelation will help them in the process of healing.
