Project Greenlight photos
  • HBO is bringing back another series of Project Green, and Matt and Ben will be involved - from Variety.

    HBO is bringing back “Project Greenlight,” the series from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck that gave a look at the challenges of a first-time director, the premium cable channel announced Wednesday. It originally ran for two seasons in 2001 and 2003 on HBO.

    Damon and Affleck will be back to exec produce, the same role they held during the show’s first run. The show follows the search for a first-time director, beginning with a digital competition, and follows the winner from pre-production and casting through principal photography and post-production.

  • A photo from the Monuments Men White House screening was posted on the official White House Flickr page.



  • Photos of Matt and Lucy with Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber at an airshow on the weekend are at the Daily Mail, Just Jared and People. A report is at the NY Post.



    Dan Friedkin and Emmy-winner Lauren Sanchez Whitesell hosted a private party at California’s Chino Airport Saturday for the Planes of Fame Air Show, where thousands witnessed aerobatic performances from Friedkin’s Horsemen Flight Team and historic war aircraft.

    Guests, some of whom helicoptered in from LA, included Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford with their daughter Kaia; Matt Damon, his wife Luciana and their four kids; William Lauder and Andy Garcia.

    Wow. Lot's of neat stuff. Thank you.

    Thanks Cindi. I've deleted a few posts questioning baselessly speculating Lucy's looks but it's good to see a positive post!

    The CNBC Meets interview should be a thorough one, and no doubt will be online shortly after it airs.

    CNBC

    It's funny, yet also sad, to see all these stories picking up on the question about Bourne. There's plenty of real news in Matt's amazing success with water.org, with a terrific human interest angle, yet here are all these stories about Matt's Bourne answer. Which is exactly the same answer he's been giving for YEARS. It's not even news!!

    Sigh. Sorry for venting, I know we all feel this way.

    Re: CNBC

    I haven't actually looked at any Bourne stories for months, and block the word on my twitter search. It's not a story. USA Today actually has a story on Matt's non-comments re Bourne, George and Ben (he's always polite but says nothing).

    A Casamigos post about the air show. Guests were helicoptered to the event from LA?

    Aflo has a few photos of Matt and Lucy walking in Brentwood on Monday (if you can get the search to work).

    Re: CNBC

    Should also mention that the CNBC interview was done at Davos, so unless there was a follow-up interview, all quotes are over three months out of date and in a different context, eg before Monuments Men was viewed to have flopped and the Robert Kennedy project had new momentum (without Matt).

    Re: Sighting

    Wow, Matt looks so handsome. Love the way he warns the paps that they're about to back into the car, says "thank you, sir" to the attendant, and briefly turns his back to the paps as he tips the guy - undoubtedly a big tip. And that smile, aaagghh!

    Seriously, how can anybody not love class like that?

    How nice! I just love seeing them with friends. I love that they manage to be dedicated to each other, family and business and philanthropy, and yet still have time for friends. Pretty amazing.

    He looks super young! I think it's the hair.

    Re: Date Night - same night as the video posted above

    I think he's lost weight. I think he lost weight then gained a small amount back while he was injured and lost it again.

    Re: Date Night - same night as the video posted above

    he looked very fit when I met him in January on LENO. I think he wears his clothes one size too big. the one of him bike riding last week he looked bigger, but he's really not.

    Re: Date Night - same night as the video posted above

    This is pure conjecture: According to my perception he was very fit on Leno and the Globes, which is the timeframe I was alluding to when I said he looked like he lost weight. I know he was injured then, but it takes a bit of time to have the weight alter. It wasn't until a few a little later that he seemed to put back on just a few pounds--or lose a little tone, and now he's back like he was on Leno. He never gained back as much as he'd lost, though. I just notice these things! But I agree about his clothes sometimes. It's probably because his weight fluctuates so he has probably two if not three different sizes in his closet. LOL.

    Note

    Any posts I delete are usually to do with speculation. I don't know what brackets are (it must be a US term), but I don't like readers speculating about things on this site we don't know are correct. Posts in the comments section on this site which may reference random tweets are regularly turned into malicious, baseless gossip on other sites.

    Re: Note

    I think brackets are dental braces. Not sure, though.
    Anyway, they look great.

    I like that you clean up the comments. I know some of mine have been deleted and I am never bothered by it. Sometimes I ramble!

    Lucy.

    Mr. Damon, if the rumors about Lucy are not true, you shouldn't feel so angry about it. Time will tell if she has any work done. You are a public figure and people is going to talk about your and your wife's looks.. Some comments are going to be positive and some negatives. If you don't want the public to talk or take pictures of you move out Hollywood. Unfortunately that comes with fame. Have a wonderful day.

    Empire mag birthday

    I'm not sure how new this is, so you may have posted it earlier. Matt (and other celebs) congratulating Empire on its 25th birthday. Matt' segment is at the end and the longest.

    Huh?

    Hitfix claims Matt and Ben are co-producing a sci-fi film, 'Sleeper'. Did I miss this somehow?
    This sound weird. There's an old Woody Allen comedy sci-fi called 'Sleeper'. Hilarious movie, by the way.

    Re: Huh?

    Announced some months ago as just a possible project at this stage. Based on a graphic novel I think.
