We had a feeling that Matt Damon’s recent comments were going to come back and haunt him.
Minnie Driver explained that she “desperately” felt the need to speak out against former Good Will Hunting co-star Matt Damon, following his recent comments on sexual assault that caused controversy all across social media.
“God God, SERIOUSLY?” Minnie Driver Tweeted on Friday, with a link to the offending article.
“There are so many men I love who do NOT frame the differentiation between sexual misconduct, assault and rape as an excuse or worse – our problem,” she added on Twitter.
And a few days later, the 47-year-old actress revealed that she has no regrets about slamming Matt Damon on social media, as she felt that he had no place expressing his thoughts on sexual assault…
“I felt I desperately needed to say something,” Minnie Driver told The Guardian.
“I’ve realized that most men, good men, the men that I love, there is a cut-off. They simply cannot understand what abuse is like on a daily level.
“I honestly think that until we get on the same page, you can’t tell a woman about their abuse. A man cannot do that. No one can.
“It is so individual and so personal, it’s galling when a powerful man steps up and starts dictating the terms, whether he intends it or not.”
We definitely think a lot of women are going to side with Minnie Driver on this topic.
