The 47-year-old actor sparked a conversation on Friday following his controversial comments on sexual misconduct during a Thursday interview with ABC News' Peter Travers.
Damon didn't hold back while giving his opinions on several of the latest sexual harassment and assault scandals, explaining that he believes "there's a spectrum of behavior... [and] there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated, right?”
“All of that behavior needs to be confronted, but there is a continuum. And on this end of the continuum where you have rape and child molestation or whatever, you know, that’s prison. Right? And that’s what needs to happen. Ok? And then we can talk about rehabilitation and everything else," he continued. "That’s criminal behavior, and it needs to
“I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories and it’s totally necessary,” Damon, 47, explained in a preview clip of an upcoming edition of ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers released Thursday. “I do believe there’s a spectrum of behavior… There’s a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated.
“A phone call would have been nice,” said Scott, already a Best Director Golden Globe nominee for the film. “At first I was disappointed. Then I was mad.”

The actress was just nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance as Gail Getty in the gripping thriller about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III. In the clip above, the actress pleads with her son’s kidnappers to set him free.
“My son Paul must be very frightened right now, I know I’m frightened for him,” she says as Gail. “So to the people who took him: I don’t care why you did this, but I ask, as a mother,

All The Money In The World
Of course, everyone is going to have their favorites, and with several critics groups already announcing their lists/awards, there is always something that has to be left out, but a lot of people have to be surprised by some of the nominations, especially since Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World recently had to change stars, and kicked out indie darling Greta Gerwig from a spot in the Director noms.
Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think.
Best Motion Picture – Drama
“All the Money in the World”
Music by Daniel Pemberton
For Ridley Scott’s film about the 1973 kidnapping of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty’s grandson, now completing post-production after the last-minute replacement of lead Kevin Spacey by Christopher Plummer, English composer Pemberton made a bold choice: voices of many kinds, from operatic to Italian folk singers.
“Getty sees himself as this grand figure,” Pemberton explains. “We have medieval voices, which refer back to his belief that he was descended from [Roman emperor] Hadrian; and the more grand operatic music, which was a slight reflection of Rome [where much of the film was shot] but also Getty’s own vision of self-identity.”
For the kidnappers, whose world is “grubby, rural, coarse and out in the middle of nowhere
We kid. Kind of…
The international journalists group nominated Ridley Scott’s embattled film for a whopping three prizes Monday morning. Those included a best director nom for Scott himself, who rallied his team back together for 10 days of reshoots following star Kevin Spacey’s abrupt fall from grace amid sexual assault and harassment allegations.
As Variety exclusively reported, the Sony film was screened in a rough for for the group a week ago, just four days after production wrapped for a second time with actor Christopher Plummer replacing Spacey as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty. Plummer was also nominated, for supporting actor, while Michelle Williams picked up a lead actress, drama, nomination.

Considering what a strong year it was for women and minority directors like Greta Gerwig, Jordan Peele, Dee Rees, and Patty Jenkins, it’s especially unfortunate how male-dominated the race is this year. Del Toro is the only minority nominated in what many people agree should’ve been a banner year for an inclusive Best Director race.

Although 2017 has been called the year of the woman, the Globes managed to overlook two of the biggest female-led hits of the year: “Beauty and the Beast,” the most successful movie of 2017 so far, was snubbed in the musical/comedy category, and “Wonder Woman” was shut out for any awards. Other surprises: Jordan Peele didn’t get a nomination for writing or directing “Get Out,” although his movie did receive two nominations (for best picture and actor).
Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape of Water,” a love story between a lonely woman and a monster, led all movies with seven nominations.
