World Water Day
An interview with Matt for World Water Day is at People, including:
http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20796927,00.html

Matt Damon wants his daughters to be proud of his work - especially his efforts to make the world a better place.

"I have four girls of my own and I want them to be proud of the impact I’m making in the world,” Damon said. The film star co-founded Water.org, a nonprofit that helps supply poor communities with safe water, and he spoke with the magazine ahead of World Water Day March 22.

“I’m looking forward to sharing the work with my family. I think it’s a really valuable opportunity to learn and curate your own passions for giving back at an early age.”

Photos of Matt and Lucy out in LA are at the Daily Mail.

If anyone is interested there was a 4.4 earthquake at 6:30am March 17th in the Santa Monica mountains, which is essentially the Pacific Palisades. There were no reports of any type of damage-- a 4.4, even when you're in the epicenter, which Matt and family were, is not big enough for damage. I don 't know if they're at home, but if they are, you can bet they all felt it! Thought some folks might like to know. I felt it but I was miles away in Orange County. It was big enough to wake me, but not big enough for me to open my eyes. I don't know if the Matt and family are as used to earthquakes, like I am as a native. Might have scared them. It's possible Lucy is used them from being native to Argentina.

Earthquake

Thanks for the report about it. I also wondered if this might shake the family up a bit. (Sorry, bad pun).

Matt and Lucy might have ended up with a bed full of scared little girls again!

Update

Hi all. Heard about the earthquake yesterday in Zambia and hoped all was ok. Was staying at the Victoria Falls and did a day trip to a game park in Botswana, near the borders of Zimbabwe and Namibia. Now back to Johannesburg for a night ahead of the trip home tomorrow. And still so quiet for Matt news! Nothing going on.

Re: Update

Be safe. We'll be happy to have you back. I hope you took pics of neato far away places. And animals!

Re: Update

Our lives have been so similar the last few days... While you were staying at Victoria Falls and day tripping to the game park near Zimbabwe I was getting my nose cauterized by an ENT and trimming my mom's rose bushes.

You see, virtually identical. ;-)

Seriously, you must be having a fantastic time and it's great to hear about it! Put up some pictures!

It's characteristically gracious of Matt not to do anything interesting while you have been gone. I'm sure he'll be relieved when you're back. Then he can leave the house again.

Re: Update

Did you see that George Clooney and girlfriend Amal were in Tanzania last week in a ridiculous tourist safari outfit? Very posed fake pic.

Re: Update

When you say posed fake, do you mean, not an authentic moment on a real trip or that they were only there to take publicity pics?

Re: Update

Don't know. It's clearly a posed pic with new girlfriend and authorised shots, but the outfit is ridiculous. A donation most likely has been made to George or a charity, because they certainly weren't coincidental. Maybe the trip was real, but he clearly wanted it publicised and shown to the world via People.

Re: Update

It also coincides with the announcement last week of George's ex Stacy Keibler getting married and possibly being pregnant, think that has alot to do with pictures being released and timing.

Magazine Covers

Hey all, have you seen the Russian cover of MEN'S HEALTH? there's a different photo of Matt than the US version had and also the French cover of PREMIERE magazine has a photo with Matt, George and Jean.

Re: Magazine Covers

here is the pic:

It isn't the best pic of Matt. They are better inside the magazine. You can see the scan of the article on the site of the "Frenchies" but have to scroll down to the second page because it was posted a few weeks ago (I post the link in that time)
