    Photo

    Another photo of Matt in China - hotel or restaurant? And two rings?

    I didn't need to register for the site but others did. Just Matt with a pretty local in a lobby.

    Thanks, I can see this one. Maybe the ring is an extra pony older - just in case! Ha. Paula

    Side comment: I really dislike the irresponsible reporting by the LA Times (and copied by countless other sites) that Matt was going to be at the boxing match in Vegas today. He was never going to be there and, although rumored to have been at many fights, has never gone. Thankfully.

    Re: And another pic

    Yeah, those reports ticked me off as well. Some promoter is obviously just making up that list. But wasn't he at one fight many years ago? Seems like I remember him being ringside once quite a few years ago. Maybe a Pacquiao (sp) fight?

    GWH- Tribeca Film Festival

    This is a transcription of the discussion from the Tribeca Film Festival that happened a few weeks ago:

    Scroll down after video for listening to the whole discussion.

    And if you want to play...test your Bourne's knowledges! I only failed for one answer about money.

    I missed 1 out of all questions. I thought in the first film he offers Marie $10,000 for the ride to Paris. Hmmmm
    Love the Bourne series though.

    Re: Qingdao

    tjecked that - but I can't see anything new that has Matt in it. Lots of other interesting pictures though

    And it seems that Weibo is the place to tjeck...

    Jason has removed the photo with Pascal. Maybe it showed too much of the set or characters.

    Re: Qingdao

    Too bad! For those that didn't get to see, Matt's hair looked great, smoothed back into a pony. No weird hair! Just wanted to update everyone, since about 60% of our posts lately are about his hair. :-)

    Article from the Washington Post about Andy Weir and The Martian. Contains errors, but still of worth.

    Another candid

    Another interesting shot (if we're only caring about the hair) from Weibo:

    That is an interesting shot, and matt looks like a fun guy to hang around. He seems so down to earth.

    Re: Another candid

    Matt and Lucy sure do get first class treatment when it comes to personal trainers (among man other things!). If you recall Simone (Body by Simone founder) has called Lucy her BFF and now Jason seems to be the Damon's BFF. On Jason's IG account there is another cute pic of Stella showing off her muscles.

    Completely adorable photo of Lucy and the girls. But isn't there one extra there, as in the picture with Jason the other day? Maybe it's Jason's daughter?
