Town and Country interview
  • Matt is interviewed for the new issue of Town and Country magazine to discuss his work with Gary White and water.org. The interview is available online here. Photos and excerpts are at the Daily Mail.

    Image and video hosting by TinyPic

    One of the reasons Damon and White get along so well is that they are smart, cerebral men; for them solving the water crisis is a highly intellectual exercise. But I'm curious about the emotional impact. Has Damon ever felt joy in this work?

    "That's a funny thing," he says. "There are fewer moments than if I was doing something much more specific at a local level. For me Water.org was always about maximizing impact. But I also have four daughters, and this is an issue for girls. And the people I talk to are girls, and sometimes the same age as my kids. So there is obviously going to be a connection there."

  • Matt and Frank Marshall will return to Boise on 20 July for the Jason Bourne premiere.

    Cannes?

    Can anyone confirm if Matt and family will be attending this year?

    Re: Cannes?

    Unlikely. He's got nothing to promote that is showing at Cannes, and he's filming in Toronto.

    Gossipy article

    An indiscrete article on a NY shop references Lucy (and says a lot of things they shouldn't be discussing):

    http://ny.racked.com/2016/5/11/11659784/scoop-nyc-closing-essay

    My first big sale — north of $5,000 — was a pretty dark-haired mom who told me her husband was taking her on vacation to Hawaii, and she needed some new clothes. We spent at least one hour pulling her outfits together before I realized this nice lady's husband was Matt Damon.

    OMAZE

    Did they ever announce who won the OMAZE Red contest for Matt Damon. Where they were supposed to sit in the Green Room at the Jimmy Kimmel show with him?

    It seemed like they filmed it months ago and it will be released during the Bourne promotion. There were some instagram pics with Omaze tags.

    The article didn't seem to be correct, or the translation didn't work well. I thought Xuan is Lucy's brother.

    Old pics but nice to see the evolution of the character. There are many of them on the Net but I find this one pleasant.

    Alexander Payne

    This article (clearly about Alexander Payne, George Parra and the making of Election) is doing the rounds, but hasn't been publicly denied or hit major outlets yet. Payne is usually described as a good guy in the business.

    RE: Suburbicon

    Wow, this cast is insane! It must be a strongly written ensemble piece to attract this many terrific actors. Which, in a shortsighted way is too bad, because all these actors means that Matt's screen time will inevitably be less than it otherwise would be in a movie in which he's "the star". But, hey, if the movie's good, I'll live with it!

    Bar fight rumours

    No idea if Matt is even anywhere near Regina at the moment when he should be filming in Toronto, but these rumors are now airing of a bar fight in Regina (could be from a fake news site):

    http://gettopical.com/matt-damon/7cabab53841727db4797875bca909cd8

    REGINA, Saskatchewan – Local news reports out of Regina, Saskatchewan are reporting that Hollywood actor Matt Damon was involved in a bar fight in Regina late last night. One man who allegedly attacked Damon was arrested and is being held on assault charges. According to patrons in the bar at the time of the incident, two men who appeared to recognize Damon began to verbally attack him for no apparent reason. Damon then stood up and said something back to the men when one of the men lunged toward him. Other bar patrons immediately intervened and restrained the man until police arrived. Damon was not injured. (etc)

    Re: Bar fight rumours

    It is interesting. If this is true, it will appear in other news.
    P.S. And anyway, he was often to go to bars. Where is his family?)
    from the comments to the article: Worst city in Canada, look at the stats.

    Google tells me it takes almost 3hrs to fly from Toronto to Regina. Doubt how many percentage of the "news" is true.
    From: (Anonymous) Date: May 18th, 2016 10:01 pm (UTC) (Link)

    RE: Bar fight rumours

    I don't think it is true. This is a spam article like the one a while ago about Matt buying house in some weird location. Apparently, there were almost identical articles about RDJ several days ago except it happened somewhere in California.
