Interview, various
  • A new French interview with Matt about sport is at Sport and Style, including Matt praising Francois Pienaar, rugby, synchronised swimming and early dreams of being a fencing champion to be more like Luke Skywalker.

  • Photos of Matt at the gym on Wednesday, and at a school and coffee run on Thursday are at the Daily Mail.



  • President Bill Clinton praised Matt's knowledge about water issues during an interview with ET on Wednesday.

  • From an interview with Chris Hemsworth:

    Q: You have been quoted as saying that Matt Damon gave you the advice to be boring.
    Hemsworth: (He laughs.) Yeah, we were talking about fame and whatever and avoiding tabloids and paparazzi and that sort of thing. I said, “You do a good job at it, how do you?” and he said, “Some people are just a target and others aren’t.” If you’re not falling out of a club at 4 a.m. with various women on your arms and you lead a pretty boring lifestyle, from a magazine point of view, you can skip some of it. It’s not something you can fake, anyway. I think you either are that type of person or you’re not. Both of us tend to be very family-oriented, and it keeps us out of trouble.

  • Another Emmys photo from InStyle.

    Bulger movie

    Deadline is reporting that Warner's has hired Aaron Stockard to work on the Bulger movie so that project is still moving forward.

    Re: Bulger movie

    I still hope it falls apart and is never made. Aaron, of course, is an old school friend of Matt and Ben's.

    Re: Bulger movie

    Felicity why? I like the concepts for Race to the South Pole and Father Daughter Time. I have mixed feelings about The Foreigner as his directorial debut.

    Re: Bulger movie

    It's going to be just another movie which glorifies a violent crime figure and I don't think we need any more of those. Find a positive local hero.

    Re: Pic, Miami

    Yes - Matt is with his whole family, including father Kent with his wife, Nancy and Kyle. It must be a special event to have both Nancy and Kent there (which only happened before at the vow renewal?)

    Re: Pic, Miami

    Ha, ha, that is an ... interesting ... outfit Kent has on. Lol. Cute to see him playing with his grand daughter (Stella?) in the pool.

    I wonder what could be going on? Maybe somebody in the extended family is getting married.

    Re: Pic, Miami

    I think it's Stella in the pool. Nancy and Kent's original anniversary?

    Isopix has some more photos and the Daily Mail updated with a few new photos, including a super cute one of Kent and Stella:

    Why would his parent's celebrate their originial anniversary if they have been for over decades each been with their significant others? You don't see Ish (the interesting step nephew at the reunion even though he lives in Miami) and also I don't see Alexia in any of the pics. Maybe the paps didn't capture her or she'll appear in other pics. But remember her father lives in Miami and he is actively involved in her life so maybe this was also a trip for her to visit Arbelio.

    Remember the stories of Nancy and Kent celebrating a milestone anniversary together with Matt and Kyle although they had been divorced for years (they now must be close to 50 years)? Celeste and Doug aren't in these photos, and we can only see Kyle's kids in one.

    Family near pool in Miami

    I looked at some these photos of Stella and she is Matt's female mini-me because Stella looks exactly like her daddy! I mean spitting image of him!

    Too many pics of kids!

    There are nice pics but I find this very too intrusive; it's a private party, Matt's relatives aren't celebrities and it's a shame to post so many pics of the kids: they are minors and it's forbidden to take a photo of a minor without authorisation. You wrote a few days ago that there is now a law in California to protect stars's children, I think in Europe there is also one for all the kids, apparently not in Florida! (However the most shocking set is the one of PurePeople,an european site!)

    Nora's birthday

    The rest of the weekend was private - it may have been for Nora's birthday.

    http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/09/30/3661247/matt-damon-family-live-large-at.html

    Matt Damon and his family (26 people total!) enjoyed a leisurely lunch at Saturday at La Cote, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach’s seaside Mediterranean restaurant, where they seemed to have a swell time. And why wouldn’t they? The staff created a private section for them on the upper level. Our moles say they are pretty certain the celebration was in honor of his mother-in-law’s birthday although there was no cake, so who knows. The group was “extremely kind to the staff” who made special runs to the resort’s casual poolside eatery for special milkshakes for all the kids. Ah, the A-list.

    Washington

    Matt went to Washington after leaving Miami (maybe for the documentary, education reforms or water.org), but is on a flight back to LA with Nancy.

    All of the 'Matt and Lucy PDA' photos at the pool are now up at newscom.com.
