Alyssa Milano slams Matt Damon

Alyssa Milano slams Matt Damon

Matt Damon has been heavily criticised after suggesting that the sexual misconduct scandal in Hollywood reveals a "culture of outrage" that has gone too far.

Alyssa Milano and Minnie Driver have spoken out against Matt Damon's controversial comments about sexual misconduct, in which he said that not all allegations should be handled the same way. We are outraged because we were made to feel this was normal. "We are outraged because we have been gaslighted", the Mistresses actress continued. "We are outraged because we were silenced for so long".

"The Louis C.K. thing".

Damon received serious backlash over the interview after people were quick to notice he did not understand the #MeToo movement. "There's a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?" he continued. I don't know Louis C.K.

Driver - who dated Damon after they starred in 1997's Good Will Hunting together - also responded to her ex's comments by retweeting a post that highlighted his comments, writing, "God God, seriously?"

Another user wrote, "The problem with responses like the ones Tom Hanks & Matt Damon gave today is that men are taught their opinion is important even if it's about an issue they don't know much about, while women are taught to apologise for their opinions even when they're well versed in the topic".

The two stars were just a couple of many women - and men - to speak out about Damon's comments. Minnie concluded her Twitter rant by stating: "Look, weather (sic) you're joking or not - women being anxious about weather (sic) powerful men in my industry will still give them work if they speak up is part of the bloody problem".

Another added, "So disappointed at Matt Damon's remarks".

Six women filed a federal lawsuit against Weinstein on Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, claiming that the movie mogul's actions to cover up assaults amounted to civil racketeering.

The "Great Wall" star still argued that Louis CK, one of the men named and shamed in recent sexual misconduct exposes, probably shouldn't have lost work or been professionally ruined as a result.

He continues to stand by the fact that he had no idea Weinstein behaved this way and while he knew the film producer was a "womanizer", he thought his encounters were consensual. "I'm a fan of his, but I don't imagine he's going to do those things again", Damon said.

"They would've said absolutely no".

"On this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that's prison". So when you hear, 'Harvey this, Harvey that, ' I mean, look at the guy. "And that wasn't a surprise to anybody".
