Matt Damon ignores Weinstein scandal during 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Matt Damon appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Tuesday night and made no mention of the slew of sexual misconduct claims against Harvey Weinstein.

Damon crashed Chris Hemsworth’s interview for his upcoming movie “Thor: Ragnarok” and was focused on only laughs — reliving his fake feud with Kimmel just hours after the “Good Will Hunting” star denied squashing a 2004 New York Times story about allegations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein.

Throughout the interview, Damon kept appearing, both in the green room with “Thor” director Taika Waitit and actor Mark Ruffalo, as well as on the giant screen behind the stage.

“It’s the mighty Thor not the muddy bore, so maybe take a walk!” Kimmel shouted when Damon first began talking over Ruffalo.

Hemsworth also got in on the fun, explaining that Damon just showed up at his house in Australia and he became friends with him because he felt sorry for him.

Damon was inserted into the scandal surrounding Weinstein earlier this week when a reporter for The Wrap recalled working on a New York Times story back in 2004 about similar allegations of sexual misconduct against the movie producer.

The “Jason Bourne” star denied the accusations, explaining that he did in fact call the reporter, Sharon Waxman, but to vouch for Fabrizio Lombardo, who ran Miramax’s Italian office.

“I never saw this (alleged sexual misconduct). I think a lot of actors have come out and said, everybody’s saying we all knew. That’s not true. This type of predation happens behind closed doors, and out of public view,” the father of four daughters told Deadline.

“If there was ever an event that I was at and Harvey was doing this kind of thing and I didn’t see it, then I am so deeply sorry, because I would have stopped it.”

Women who have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault

Weinstein backed Damon and Ben Affleck’s 1997 film “Good Will Hunting” and Damon and Weinstein later worked together on such films like, “Chasing Amy,” “Dogma,” “The Brothers Grimm” and “Rounders.”

Kimmel previously addressed the Weinstein scandal on Monday’s episode after Donald Trump Jr. challenged him to do so.

The late night host called out Hillary Clinton for taking money from not just one, but two, high-profile men who have been accused of sexual harassment multiple times: Weinstein and President Trump.

Kimmel also threw in his own Weinstein jab, unrelated to Trump.

“What’s the difference between Harvey Weinstein and the Pillsbury Doughboy?” he asked. “When the Pillsbury Doughboy offers you a roll, he doesn’t ask you to watch him take a shower for it.”
