Weinstein had asked Damon and Crowe to call her, she told BBC Newsnight.
Jessica Chastain, with whom Damon had worked on The Martian, tweeted alongside the story about him: "This is heart shattering".
Damon even tried to chomp Kimmel's head, but the late night host put up his "emergency screensaver", a still of Damon with Michael Douglas in Behind the Candelabra.
In the article, Waxman had alleged Lombardo procured women for Weinstein and that he knew nothing about the film industry. "I would never, ever, ever try to kill a story like that", he told Deadline.
And this week, Kimmel while discussing the Las Vegas shooting, saying "it's the kind of thing that makes you want to throw up or give up" while slamming lawmakers for their response to the tragedy. I've been here for a really long time, Jimmy. As a former employee of the paper who claims she had her own Weinstein story buried and sanitized, Waxman made a decision to come forward with her claims.
"I feel sorry for him, he has nothing", Hemsworth replied. "He called me briefly, wasn't informed - nor should he have been - about investigative aspect of piece". "Decades! I've learned a lot of stuff", the actor said. That's not true. This type of predation happens behind closed doors, and out of public view.
The Times' former editors in 2004, Bill Keller and Jill Abramson, said they did not remember being pressured over Waxman's story, according to the current Times' executive editor Dean Baquet.
In a statement, Weinstein's spokeswoman Sallie Hofmeister said: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein".
