Jessica Chastain Defends Matt Damon Amid Weinstein Controversy

Jessica Chastain is speaking out to defend her friend and former The Martian co-star Matt Damon after it was alleged that he helped disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein cover up a story about his alleged misconduct.

The Oscar-nominated actress tweeted out an article in which Matt denied trying to kill the story and she voiced her support for the actor.

“I believe that Matt was manipulated. I’ve spent time with him on The Martian and he’s a really good guy,” Jessica tweeted.

Matt has admitted that he was asked by Weinstein to talk to a reporter about a negative story, but that he was not aware it had to do with the producer’s alleged misconduct.

Jessica has been outspoken about the Weinstein scandal and her support for the women who have come forward. “I was warned from the beginning. The stories were everywhere. To deny that is to create an environment for it to happen again,” she tweeted on Monday.

    This ˆ. Right on. She is an insufferable retard.

  • tom

    she tries to fool everybody with her feminist liberal agenda, but never succeeds

  • calafeast

    If DC casts this retard as a superhero or whatever (she is sooo thirsty for it), then I’m done with them. She must be the most off putting brainless hollywood bimbo there is.

    Idiots like this cum bucket is why people do not take women seriously when they talk. She needs to be silenced by someone.

    From Sharon Waxman

    One other thing: Matt Damon gave an interview on Tuesday in which he explained the call he made to me at Weinstein’s behest about Lombardo.

    The actor and I do not disagree on this. It was a brief call and I did not tell him what my story was about, since it did not concern him. My point was that Harvey Weinstein was using any tool he could — including getting his celebrity friends to vouch for Lombardo — to get me to back off the story.

    It did not work and Matt Damon is not responsible in any way for how the story turned out. So let’s just leave him alone, please.
