Matt Damon

Matt Damon is regretting making those controversial statements while commenting on the sexual misconduct scandals rocking Hollywood.

As we reported, while speaking with ABC News' Peter Travers about the post-Harvey Weinstein era that is currently upon us, the A-lister then insisted that there is a "spectrum of behavior" and suggested that not all misconduct should be treated the same. As a result, the 47-year-old was dragged by the likes of Alyssa Milano and his ex Minnie Driver.

On Tuesday, the Downsizing star appeared on the Today show, where host Kathie Lee Gifford gave him an opportunity to explain what he's learned since the backlash.

The father of four replied:

"Boy, I really wish I'd listened a lot more before I weighed in on this … Ultimately what it is for me is that I don't want to further anybody's pain. With anything that I do or say, so for that I'm really sorry."

He continued:

"And Time's Up, a lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they're doing and want to be a part of that change and want to go along for the ride, but I should get in the back seat and close my mouth for a while."

Petition Demands Matt Damon's Cameo Be Cut Out Of Ocean's 8 Over His Sexual Harassment Comments!

no title

Based on the trailer, Ocean's 8 is looking to be one of the best movies of 2018 — but one floating diaper threatens to soil the seas of feminism the film promises to sail: Matt Damon!

The Ocean's 11-13 star will be making a cameo in the Sandra Bullock-led sequel, and fans are NOT happy about it given his recent comments on Hollywood's sexual misconduct scandal.

Fans are so against Damon's cameo, in fact, a petition has circulated demanding that producers take it out of the film!

At the time of this writing, the online petition had over 19,300 signatures calling for his removal — just a few hundred shy of the petition's 20,000 signature goal.

Referencing the actor's alleged involvement in trying to kill a 2004 story about Harvey Weinstein's predatory history, the petition claims Damon's appearance in Ocean's 8 would "trivialize the serious nature" of the allegations. The petition read:

Matt Damon Skips Out On Downsizing's Screening Following His Controversial Sexual Misconduct Comments!

Matt Damon is laying low!

Following his controversial statements while commenting on the sexual misconduct scandals rocking Hollywood, Matt Damon was noticeably not present at the Los Angeles screening of his film Downsizing on Monday!

A Paramount Pictures rep spoke on behalf of the A-lister, saying he was out of town "dealing with an ongoing family matter." It's been reported his father isn't doing well.

Regardless, his costars Laura Dern, Kristen Wiig, Hong Chau, Niecy Nash, and director Alexander Payne (above) were all in attendance (above)!

Kristen even spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the controversy:

"It's a delicate thing for everyone to talk about and I feel like we're all learning. I have friends who have just told me stories of things that happened to them that I had no idea about it. It's just been a heartbreaking thing for everybody."

And while Laura hadn't yet heard Matt's comments due to Star Wars promo, she did say, "We've got to all figure out a way to work together" and learn to not "bully [each other] on social media."

It must be so awkward for them!

But maybe it was for the best Damon wasn't there?? Although we sincerely hope his family is okay!!

What do YOU think?
