Weinstein was instrumental in jump-starting Damon's career when his company at the time, Miramax, distributed his and Affleck's movie, Good Will Hunting, which earned them both Oscars.
"I was there at the height of his power and what you knew back then, you had to spend about five minutes with him to know he was a bully, he was intimidating -- that was his legend," Damon recalled. "So when people say everybody knew, yeah I knew, I knew he was an a**hole. He was proud of that."
"I knew he was a womanizer. I wouldn't want to be married to the guy, but that's not my business really," he added. "But this level of criminal sexual predation is not something that I ever thought was going on. Absolutely not."
