Damon appeared on ABC News and spoke with Peter Travers about the current state of Hollywood and the cloud of sexual misconduct allegations surrounding it.

Damon's statements about the comedian Louis CK also confused Driver.
Actress Alyssa Milano also criticized Damon for his differential treatment of various forms of sexual assault.
In an interview with The Guardian on Saturday, Driver reiterated her comments about Damon, arguing that most men fail to "understand what abuse is like on a daily level".
"We're in this watershed moment and it's great but I think one thing that's not being talked about is there are a whole s--load of guys - the preponderance of men I've worked with - who don't do this kind of thing and whose lives aren't going to be affected", Damon told Business Insider while promoting his new movie, "Downsizing" (opening in theaters Friday). You know what I mean? "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". Of course he's a womanizer ... Damon said that Franken's alleged acts weren't in the "same category" as Harvey Weinstein. Ben told me, but I knew that they had come to whatever agreement or understanding they had come to. Then Damon shouted out the true heroes in this saga: the noble warriors of Hollywood who haven't committed sexual harassment or assault.
She also added: "There is no hierarchy of abuse - that if a woman is raped [it] is much worse than if woman has a penis exposed to her that she didn't want or ask for ... you can not tell those women that one is supposed to feel worse than the other".
"I mean, I wouldn't want to work with somebody who- life's too short for that".
Damon's rep has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment. "We need good intelligent men to say this is all bad across the board, condemn it all and start again".
