Default Julianna Margulies defends Matt Damon after backlash over his #MeToo comments

Julianna Margulies has defended Matt Damon after he faced a backlash over his #MeToo comments.

Earlier this year, the Good Will Hunting actor weighed in on the movement against sexual harassment and abuse in the entertainment industry, bemoaning the fact that most men in Hollywood, like himself, aren't predators.

Damon later apologized amid a furious backlash as critics accused him of dismissing victims' experiences.

Now, months later, The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies has spoken out saying that she didn't believe he had anything to apologize for.

'I didn't think that was right,' she told Katie Couric in a podcast episode on Thursday.

'I understood what he was saying. He was completely compassionate about what was going with people who are raping, but it's not the same as what's going on with people who are joking around on a set.'

The Dietland star continued: 'You have to differentiate between what's acceptable and what's not acceptable.

'The dialogue has been opened, finally, after all these years. The reason the pendulum swung so far was that women, it's been bubbling under the surface and this tiny little opening happened, and we all just ran out of that one ripped seam.'

'I think what's important to remember is that there is also women who abuse their power. This whole movement, I feel, has been bubbling under the surface for years It's just the beginning.'

Margulies said she has personally experienced sexual harassment in the industry, including disgraced former producer Harvey Weinstein who she accused of luring her to a hotel room in her 20s. She has accused an allegedly gun-toting Steven Seagal of a similar incident.
