George Clooney didn't shy away from addressing the Harvey Weinstein scandal on the red carpet for his latest film Suburbicon saying he hopes this is a "moment" which changes society.

Since The New York Times published an explosive article on the disgraced movie mogul which contained [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], more victims of sexual harassment have been encouraged to share their stories.

Clooney told reporters at the Los Angeles premiere that he hopes the Weinstein controversy will continue to shine a light on sexual abuse and harassment.



"This isn't a Hollywood problem, this exists in all kinds of other arenas we all know and we've all seen", he said. "I think we're all going to have to get to the point where women feel safe to talk about this, where they feel believed and where the men that do this don't feel safe.



"That seems to be the secret to this, it has to be that they can't think they can get away with this anymore. We've got to get to that point. "Maybe this is a moment. If it's not a moment then it's just gonna be stupid Harvey Weinstein jokes in about three months and nothing really gets moved forward. So I hope it is.

"If we can get to that point then we actually succeeded. This thing won't end up just being Harvey Weinstein jokes in three months."

Clooney, who directed and executive produced the crime comedy Suburbicon, attended the premiere with his wife Amal, with whom he shares twin babies Ella and Alexander. The 56-year-old Hollywood star said having children is not necessary to fully understand the horror of the Weinstein scandal.

"You don't need to have children to think, in terms of how Harvey Weinstein and people treated women, to think how terrible that is", Clooney said. "I feel like right now my kids are innocent and don't have to deal with any of this stuff and I'm certainly concerned that at some point we're all going to have to address it together."

Meanwhile, Clooney's close friend and Suburbicon star Matt Damon said he was optimistic that these stories can bring change and added that the fact that former Hollywood heavyweight [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is a step in the right direction.

"The fact that one of the most powerful people I’ve ever seen in Hollywood has been banished basically is a shot across the bow to any man in this industry who would leverage and use their power to mistreat a woman," said Damon. "I think they’re on notice. You know? If it can happen to someone as powerful as Harvey, it can happen to anybody. Hopefully that's a step in the right direction."

Damon's Suburbicon co-star Julianne Moore said that sexual abuse and harassment is not just an issue in Hollywood and says that women need to be encouraged to speak out against abusers.

"It's not endemic only to Hollywood, it's all over the world and I don't know if we want to reach a conclusion, what we want to do is empower women to speak out about what's going on and let them know that they're not alone, that this is behaviour that should not be acceptable", she said.

Moore added that the issue of abuse in Hollywood needs to be tackled on a practical level, saying: "There are some lawyers in New York right now working on eradicating non disclosure agreements in the case of sexual harassment and I think this is absolutely the right way to go."

[size=46]George Clooney Talks Positives of Weinstein Aftermath, Says Amal Has Faced Similar Situations (Exclusive)[/size]

By Rachel McRady‍ 2:27 AM PDT, October 23, 2017






George Clooney wants to lend his voice to preventing a future Harvey Weinstein situation from happening again.
The 56-year-old spoke with ET’s Carly Steel at a press junket for his new film Suburbicon on Saturday where he opened up about the aftermath of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Weinstein scandal.
“We have to, moving forward, we have to make sure that now there has to be something good that’s gonna come out of all of this. And the thing that’s good that could come out of this is that women feel safer in talking about these situations, and in doing so, that it makes it much harder for men who would behave like this to do it, [knowing] that they'll get outed… they could lose their job or even go to jail if it goes that far. I think it’s important that that's gotta be the step forward from this. There has to be something good that comes out of it.”
Clooney is also devoted to finding others responsible in allowing Weinstein’s behavior to continue.

“Harvey would talk about women that he'd, you know, gone out with. I didn't really necessarily believe that ‘cause to believe that would believe bad things about actresses that I know and like, and I didn't really buy into that,” Clooney said. “But I will say that somebody knew and if there was a reporter that sat on a story for years and didn't write it, I want to know why because I would have liked to know to these stories. And if there was a newspaper or a website that had this information that investigated it, I'd like to see how much ad money they got from Miramax or from the Weinstein Company.”
He added, “I want to know who took women up to a hotel room and then left them there for Harvey. I want to know who did that. Harvey's gonna get his and deserves it. But there's other people involved in this and the whole culture of this is gonna have to stop.” 
The Oscar winner was quick to note that it’s not just show business where these issues of sexual harassment and assault are taking place. In fact, Clooney also talked about how the news has affected his wife, Amal, who is a top human rights lawyer.

“She's faced those exact kinds of situations in law,” he said. “It’s everywhere and so it needs to be addressed as if it’s a problem for all of us. And we have to take it on full force ‘cause the kind of assault that we're talking about now is – it’s so infuriating that this was allowed to go on as long as it did."
Clooney brought Amal and his mother-in-law, Baria Alamuddin, as his dates to Sunday’s premiere of his new film in Los Angeles.
