Hemsworth was talking the film up with Kimmel and as focus shifted to Mark Ruffalo and Taika Waititi in the Green Room, Damon appeared out of nowhere for a big crowd pop. Shenanigans followed, until Damon ended up on the jumbo screen behind Hemsworth and Kimmel.
Damon added: "I'm sure I mentioned to her that I didn't know anything about the rest of her piece, because I didn't".
Damon said he was not aware of the content of the story he was commenting on and affirmed he was not among the number of celebrities claiming they knew about Weinstein's actions prior to the expose by the New York Times and The New Yorker.
The Jason Bourne actor denied doing so, saying he had no idea what the article pertained to when he was asked by the movie mogul to defend Fabrizio Lombardo, the then Miramax Italy head who was alleged to have helped Harvey procure women. "We didn't ride Adam Carolla's coattails", a jab directed at the late-night host. He has nothing. I saw a friend in need, so I just made a decision to extend a handshake.he turned up at my house in Australia uninvited. Hemsworth said he has gone on vacations with Damon, but only because Damon has turned up to his house in Australia, uninvited.
But Damon wasn't going to let Kimmel bump him off his lineup again. Hemsworth explained that Damon also brings along his kids, which he doesn't mind because he "prefers them better". I hacked into the system.
The New York Times's executive editor Dean Baquet, who wasn't working for the paper in 2004, said: "It is unimaginable to me that The Times killed a story because of pressure from Harvey Weinstein, who was and is an advertiser".
Kimmel yells at Damon.
