Damon run down by his ex Driver.

MINNIE Driver has criticised Matt Damon over his comments on the sexual misconduct scandal engulfing Hollywood.

Damon, 47, sparked controversy when he said that there are different levels of behaviour and not all the men who have been accused should be painted with the same brush.

"I do believe that there's a spectrum of behaviour and we're going to have to figure, you know, there's a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation," he said.

"Both of those behaviours need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn't be conflated."

British actress Driver, 47, who once dated Damon, wrote on Twitter: "God God, seriously?" "It's so interesting (profoundly unsurprising) how men with all these opinions about women's differentiation between sexual misconduct, assault and rape reveal themselves to be utterly tone deaf and as a result, systemically part of the problem."
