Now he’s saying more, and no, it isn’t trying to clarify his previous words.
Speaking to Business Insider, the actor defended the many men in Hollywood who aren’t scumbags, saying:
“We’re in this watershed moment, and it’s great, but I think one thing that’s not being talked about is there are a whole shitload of guys ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ the preponderance of men I’ve worked with ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ who don’t do this kind of thing and whose lives aren’t going to be affected.”
Um, is he really saying we should be talking about the men who aren’t sexually harassing? Giving them credit?
Or is he just trying to say that no, Hollywood isn’t the cesspool it’s being called by a great many at the moment (and failing miserably at saying it)??
He then said:
“If I have to sign a sexual-harassment thing, I don’t care, I’ll sign it. I would have signed it before. I don’t do that, and most of the people I know don’t do that.”
We’re not actually sure what that’s in reference to. If he’s talking about a contract saying he won’t sexually harass, isn’t that just standard in an employment contract or something?
We mean, there’s a reason the Weinsteins and others are getting sued like crazy right now.
Anyway, we were curious what YOU thought of Damon’s comments, Perezcious readers! Tell us:
