Jason Bourne filming ends
  • Matt has returned to LA after finishing filming for Jason Bourne in London. The Oscars are on Sunday.

  • From an interview with Tom Papa at the Boston Globe:

    You’re coming to perform in your pal Matt Damon’s hometown. Is he a funny guy behind the scenes?
    He’s the greatest. We’ve become really good friends and it’s mainly built on just hanging out and making each other laugh. He’s really, really funny. A lot of times, you meet actors and they are interesting, but he’s actually really funny and just a great guy. We became really tight as soon as we started working together.

    Do you think he could make it as a comedian?
    He’s one of those annoying people who could probably do anything he sets his mind to, so let’s hope he doesn’t.

    I honestly don't think Jen is one to over-share. I have yet to bear her talk about what life is with her kiddos. If anything it's Matt who over-shares life with his "I'm just a suburban dad surrounded four girls etc." intro when they ask him anything related to family or life itself. And as others have pointed out here in the past, Matt has contradicted himself in interviews regarding family life.

    I don't think Matt has, and he never says anything of any interest (just platitudes). Jennifer hasn't shut up about the almost-divorce, leaking stories to the press on a regular basis (as has Ben). Neither has respected the other, or protected the privacy of their children. And now a Vanity Fair cover story about nothing, with only a Disney movie about miracles to promote?

    Never in any interviews Matt has been over sharing. Not sure how stating he is a father of four (which is a fact everyone knows) cane be considered sharing especially comparing to Jen.

    Such strange plot. Interestingly, what movie will turn out.

    RE: Re: Downsizing

    I'm confident because Alexander Payne is one of the best directors working today. Just look at the acclaim all his films have gotten. It's got a great cast, an unusual story but it sounds very original which is something you don't see in mainstream hollywood very often. It has a Charlie Kaufman kinda vibe of a film.

    RE: Re: Downsizing

    Thank you for this!

    I love that Matt continues to use his money earning power to support these riskier projects. I can't imagine how they are going to shoot this and make it look convincing, which is kind of scary but also exciting. Payne is a great director, which (at least to me) is somebody who has a good grasp on the vagaries the human condition, and not just a visual artistic sense.
