Matt Damon, Ben Affleck's company will use inclusion riders on future projects

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck's company will use inclusion riders on future projects

And now, his decision has directly inspired a few more big stars: Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. "There has always been available, to everybody that does a negotiation on a film, an inclusion rider, which means that you can ask for and or demand at least 50 percent diversity in not only the casting but also the crew", the 60-year-old actress said at the time.

Jordan announced last week that he would add an inclusion rider on all projects produced under his Outlier Society Productions banner.

The inclusion rider agreement will be adopted by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in production deals they plan to make in the future through their company.

In a speech at the Oscars, Frances McDormand made mention of the inclusion rider.

Jordan, everyone's favorite Black Panther sweetie, announced his production company would be adopting the riders as well.

Affleck - who won a best picture Oscar as a producer of "Argo" (2015) and shared an original-screenplay Oscar with Damon for writing "Good Will Hunting" (1997) - has not commented publicly. Actress Hilarie Burton and makeup artist Annamarie Tendler have said that Affleck has groped them, while Rose McGowan has said that Affleck was lying about not knowing about what she says Harvey Weinstein did to her.

After the scandal broke, Affleck said: "I knew he was sleazy and kind of a bully, but unfortunately that wasn't uncommon".

Meanwhile, Damon came under fire previously for seeming to suggest that there was a difference between sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. And sexuality is a huge part of that.

As for the comments about gay actors, he tried to clarify things with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, according to The Guardian, telling her: "I was just trying to say actors are more effective when they're a mystery".
