    Berlin preview

    Here's the full interview from the Berlin screening, including Matt defending Jeremy Renner's performance in Bourne - excerpt:

    http://www.filmstarts.de/nachrichten/18477982.html

    uestion: What was it like working with the other actors? What you doing after work? Do you sometimes go for a beer?

    Matt Damon: We're sorry but while this film does not drink much beer, we had to stay in shape. Sharlto not even drink the way he is by nature so crazy! However, I was fishing with him a few times and my family was with me in Vancouver. So we were walking and often did such things.

    Question: Where did mention that with the beer - we have just seen this one scene where you look really toned and fit. (Applause from the audience.) How did you bring yourself into this form?

    Matt Damon: It was much harder than it was 15 years ago! But seriously, I had to build all these muscles yes, I ate so accordingly and then propped weights in the weight room. I'm often running and boxing, weights but I had not actually been braced for years. Neill wanted this guy with a shaved head, tattoos and muscles and all that stuff - and when I accepted the role, it was clear: Okay, now I have to look like this guy! Although this is quite a challenge, but look at it this way: When you have otherwise ever get the chance to do such a thing? And with four kids makes me my wife certainly not to the gym four hours a day, except when I say favorite, I get paid for it. This is my job!

    Question: Did she liked the result?

    Matt Damon: Yes, she has enjoyed living together for a few months with this guy - but then I came back ... (laughs)

    Re: Berlin preview

    Thanks for that. I'll have to get on my other device before I can translate it, but seeing the trailer in German was good fun all by itself.

    So now we should take a poll. Ripped vengeful bald He-man Matt or Adonis boy-toy bleach blond Matt? Personally I can't yet decide but it's lots of fun mulling it over :-). (I kid, that would be too shallow)

    Ben on Behind the Candelabra

    http://au.eonline.com/news/406574/ben-affleck-quot-jealous-quot-of-matt-damon-kissing-michael-douglas-quot-i-can-t-stand-it-quot

    Remember, Damon does refer to Affleck as his "hetero life mate."

    "I saw Behind the Candelabra," Affleck said last night. "I don't know about the hetero part anymore."

    Candelabra, directed by steven soderbergh, is the real-life story of Liberace and his very tumultuous relationship his much younger lover Scott Thorson.

    "I've seen it," Affleck said. "It's spectacular to see. Matt is amazing. Michael Douglas is amazing. [Steven] Soderbergh's brilliant."

    While the film is "light" and "fun," Affleck said, "It's also quite resonate."

    Re: Ben on Behind the Candelabra/vow renewal

    The film screened for UK long-lead film critics yesterday to positive reviews. And they tried to make it a festive occasion with drinks and pigs-in-blankets canapes:

    Ben's comment to E News when asked about Matt's vow renewals this weekend:
    "I'm going to take the 5th on that one otherwise I won't be able to show my face."

    (So he actually did say yes. There are rumors of no-fly zones around the island and numerous people have written online they have had their holidays cut short as they have been kicked out out of the resort/nearby areas. The tactless work by the resort is clearly leading to disgruntled guests.)

    Re: Ben on Behind the Candelabra/vow renewal

    Very unprofessional of the resort indeed. I'm still surprised by that.

    Btw matt and family appear to be in lucia already arriving Wednesday.

    Re: Ben on Behind the Candelabra/vow renewal

    by Ben do you mean Affleck?? where did you find that quote? did he say anything else about the ceremony and did he confirm his attendance?

    Re: Ben on Behind the Candelabra/vow renewal

    It was Ben Affleck on E News at the 'To the wonder' premiere. He didn't say anything else.

    Re: Ben on Behind the Candelabra/vow renewal

    Why would Ben take the 5th and not simply say "congratulations, I'm happy for them."?

    Re: Ben on Behind the Candelabra/vow renewal

    you do know that by taking the 5th ben is saying he's not going to answer the question because he was given instructions not to.
