George Clooney Speaks Out Against Harvey Weinstein Assault Allegations: 'It's Indefensible'

George Clooney is the latest star to release a statement about Harvey Weinstein, who was recently accused of decades of sexual harassment by multiple women.

The 56-year-old actor, who has been friends with Harvey for 20 years, explained that he had heard rumors of women sleeping with Harvey for roles but brushed it off as people trying to belittle the talent of the actresses.

“The part we’re hearing now about eight women being paid off, I didn’t hear anything about that and I don’t know anyone that did. That’s a whole other level and there’s no way you can reconcile that. There’s nothing to say except that it’s indefensible,” George said in a statement to Variety.

He added, “I’ve known Harvey for twenty years. We’ve had dinners, we’ve been on location together, we’ve had arguments. But I can tell you that I’ve never seen any of this behavior – ever.”

“Maybe that’s what good will come out of this: that not just in Hollywood, although Hollywood is now the focus, but in all of these cases the victims will feel that they will be listened to, and that they don’t need to be afraid,” George concluded.

    George knows everything that goes on in Hollywood and he’s lying.

    I only have one question: If Matt Damon tried to bury this Weinstein’s sexual harrassment news back in 2004, Clooney still claimed that he knew nothing about that?

  • persononhere

    that’s a lukewarm statement at best. sounds like he’s still being a friend.

  • Loather

    Of course Clooney “never seen” it because he is not Weinstein’s type.

    Look at faggot shortass George Clooney leaning onto Weinstein in photo above… Serviced Joel Schumacher’s queer saggy ass to cast him as Batman. Would do anything for the pig Weinstein.
    Diseased closetted alcoholic scum George Clooney has made 6 film flops in a row. This Suburbicon crap got panned by critics. Check Rotten Tomatoes & imdb.
    He faked a marriage & fatherhood to beastly ugly Islamist Arab deformity Amal Alamuddin. For media coverage publicity. Instead, his popularity plummeted.
    Lying scum whose PR network run his fake public image for stealth marketing revenue & deception..
    He’s not even a biological father.
    Apparently the twin publicity props are born to a surrogate with disfigured hump nosed, bug eyed ugly Amal’s sister Tala’s eggs & her moocher gigolo 2nd husband Nico.
    Clooney is using them for attention & then a false flag story. will “eliminate” them. Beastly ugly Amal was never pregnant. Wore a prosthetic until March l & then hid from public.
    Clooney is bisexual mostly gay. Has never slept with ugly Amal. Waldo Sanchez is his main partner. A little misogynist abusive creep is deranged scum George Clooney.
