Harvey Weinstein: Matt Damon denies 'killing' 2004 story

Harvey Weinstein: Matt Damon denies 'killing' 2004 story

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Monday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" by recapping a Twitter exchange he became involved in over the weekend with Donald Trump, Jr., referencing the Harvey Weinstein scandal playing out in Hollywood while simultaneously calling out Donald Trump. However, surprisingly, actor Matt Damon showed up to distort the peaceful environment. Soon after that, his presence became problematic for the others and even more, before Kimmel distracts the situation by playing an exclusive clip from the movie.

Hemsworth said he brought his Thor: Ragnarok co-star Mark Ruffalo and director Taika Waititi with him to the show.

Kimmel cut the feed and apologized to Hemsworth for the rude interruption, but Damon still managed to get more screen time when he "hacked" his way onto the screen behind Kimmel's desk.

"Go back stage and eat the duty potatoes that we made for you", Kimmel said, clearly bewildered by this intrusion. You know who else was there?

Lufthansa to sign deal with bankrupt Air Berlin
Lufthansa declined to say whether it was set to sign a deal, saying only it was confident it would meet the deadline for negotiations.

Last night's gag comes at a time when Damon could use some comic relief.

"What's the difference between Harvey Weinstein and the Pillsbury Doughboy?" he asked. "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".

After intense pressure from Weinstein, which included having Matt Damon and Russell Crowe call me directly to vouch for Lombardo and unknown discussions well above my head at the Times, the story was gutted. "Decades! I've learned a lot of stuff", the actor said.
