True Grit premiere
  • Matt, Lucy and Alexia attended the True Grit premiere in New York on Tuesday. Photos are at PopSugar, Zimbio, Pic.app and Jezebel. Cindy Adams at the NY Post also talked to Matt and Lucy at the premiere.



  • Video from the premiere is at ET Online, Extra, PopSugar, Trailer Addict and Access Hollywood, including this quote:

    Matt: "I am luckier than I could ever say in an interview. I met an amazing woman and hit the jackpot."

    Access Hollywood
    What was Damon's worst gift? "My mother at one point said, 'Instead of giving you the gift, I gave it to someone else,'" the actor laughed. "And I was like 'Why?' She said, 'Because we need to learn how to share with the world!'"

    As for the newest addition to the Damon clan, baby Stella, the actor joked she'd have to wait a few years for Christmas gifts. "Nah, I'm not getting her anything. She doesn't know the difference. I'll make it up on her 2nd birthday."

  • Matt attended a Paul McCartney concert in Harlem on Monday.

  • Matt will present the Cecil B DeMille award to Robert DeNiro at the upcoming Golden Globes.

    DeNiro

    I am amazed that Matt will present the DeMille award to DeNiro -- I thought Dicaprio was DeNiro's protege. On the other hand, Matt was absolutely superb in The Good Shepherd!

    Colbert, TIME, etc

    Stephen Colbert gave water.org a big callout on his show yesterday. Of course, he did it by pretending to knock Matt by giving a tongue in cheek "You go to hell Matt Damon. This means I'm a bigger star than you!" (it IS after all, The Colbert Report) but it was actually a huge favor to Matt and quite funny.

    In TIME's Dec 20th "Best Movies of 2010", "inside Job" is #2 and "Green Zone" is #8. Great!

    And does it strike anybody as odd that it's Matt that's giving DeNiro this presigious award and not Leo? Hmmmmm....

    Thanks so much for all the great interviews.

    Some fun clips from Matt's interview with MTV's Josh Horowitz are now up, and include discussions on Bieber fever, working with Neill Blomkamp and We bought a zoo (the script came with music).
