Matt Damon Apologizes for Sexual Misconduct Comments: ‘I Really Wish I’d Listened’
Matt Damon apologized for his controversial remarks regarding the #MeToo movement and recent sexual misconduct revelations on the “Today” show Tuesday morning.

While discussing Damon’s upcoming Super Bowl ad, Kathie Lee Gifford asked the “Downsizing” actor about the backlash he received over comments made on ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers,” where he said sexual misconduct should be judged on a “spectrum of behavior.” “I really wish I’d listened a lot more before I weighed in on this,” Damon told Gifford. “Ultimately, what it is for me is that I don’t want to further anybody’s pain with anything that I do or say. And so for that I’m really sorry.”

“A lot of those women are my dear friends and I love them and respect them and support what they’re doing and want to be a part of that change … But I should get in the back seat and close my mouth

'Real World' Alum Jamie Chung Sounds Off on 'Bachelor' Nick Viall's Transition to Acting (Exclusive)
A successful career in film and TV didn't come easily for Jamie Chung.

The 34-year-old fought tooth and nail to become respected as an actress after starring in one of the first modern reality shows, MTV's The Real World, in 2004 -- but that doesn't mean she doesn't think others can do the same.

Et spoke with The Gifted star over the phone last week, where amid her holiday preparations with her actor husband, Bryan Greenberg -- the two have partnered with Braun this season, and plan to give out several Series 9 and Series 7 this year as gifts -- she opened up about her "unconventional" rise to fame, and gave advice to other reality stars with acting ambitions, like former Bachelor Nick Viall.

Twelve Unsinkable Facts for Titanic’s 20th AnniversaryTwelve Unsinkable Facts for Titanic’s 20th AnniversaryKurt Anthony12/19/2017 10:00:00 Am

“It’s been 84 years….”

Actually, it’s been 20 years! James Cameron’s record-breaking blockbuster Titanic celebrates its 20th anniversary today and we know you’re frozen with excitement.

A chilling tale of romantic disaster, Titanic combines the fictitious love story of Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) with the untimely fate of the R.M.S. Titanic, one of history’s most famous ships.

Originally an elaborate plan to obtain funding for deep-sea filming expeditions, Cameron has stated that he made Titanic because he wanted to dive to the real wreck. As the writer, director, co-producer, and co-editor of the film, Cameron ended up spending more time with the ship than its actual passengers.

Filmed on a production budget of $200M, Titanic was the most expensive movie ever made at the time.

Matt Damon is the latest male star to offer his two cents on the recent spate of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood, and his disparaging comments were met with lots of eye-rolls - as well as a rebuke from his former girlfriend and costar Minnie Driver. In a recent interview with ABC News, Matt was asked about the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein - whose former company, Miramax, produced many of Matt's movies - and comedian Louis C.K.; he told Peter Travers that those accused are being put into "one big bucket" and that there's a "spectrum of behavior" when it comes to sexual misconduct. "There's a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?" he said. "Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn't be conflated, right?" Matt also
