Harvey Weinstein: Matt Damon denies 'killing' 2004 story

90

Actor Matt Damon has denied trying to "kill" a story about Harvey Weinstein's behaviour when it was investigated by a reporter 13 years ago, BBC reports.

Sharon Waxman has said she looked into rumours that an employee of Weinstein in Italy was procuring women for him.

She said Damon and Russell Crowe called her to vouch for the employee.

But Damon has said he did not know the detail of the allegations. "I would never, ever, ever try to kill a story like that," he told Deadline.

"I just wouldn't do that. It's not something I would do, for anybody."

Waxman, who then worked for the New York Times, was ultimately unable to publish any allegations relating to Weinstein's sexual behaviour.
