    "The toast"

    The internet needs to make that photo the meme for "friendship goals".

    I can't imagine how it must have felt, nearly 20 years on, after all their success and life changes, to return to the script that started it all for them. That photo makes me so emotional! I'm tearing up, ugh. Those Boston boys, after all these years still do it to me ... Argh, I can't even.

    Re: "The toast"

    The friendship endures: that makes me feel warm and grateful to them for weathering the many storms. Shows it can be done. And, of course, GWH is a brilliant achievement--you ask people about how they felt about that film, and many get a glisten in their eyes. It's a wonderful script further enhanced by clearly deeply felt performances. And you can't think of it without remembering Robin. It has become iconic. I guess I'm revealing how much that film and the friendship of these two guys have affected me as well. The whole thing is a monument to art and love.

    Re: "The toast"

    Hey Paula,
    I've been missing for a while, I know. I've been super busy with work, but wanted to chime in a for a moment to say HI and say how cool that Live Read must've been in NYC. Fun to see Ben and John and Matt together. Also, I love the new Omaze campaign, I've donated in the past but this time went big, and donated enough to get the Ben & Matt t'shirt "how do you like them apples" :) cannot wait to get it, but it will take 6+ weeks after the contest closes to arrive.

    Hope all is well :)

    RE: Re: "The toast"

    Hey, Gregory, great to hear from you! I had definitely noticed your absence and was a bit concerned so thanks for reassuring us that things are good with you. Of COURSE you made a big donation, 'cause you're just awesome like that! :)

    Hey, G. Glad to see you're still among the living and doing well. Love that tee shirt. Loved it when Matt used that line joshing Kimmel on the Emmys. Anyway, onwards and upwards me bucko!

    NYCC interview

    Interesting interview from NYCC with some new info about the film. Includes minor spoiler.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5tVmszTynSY

    ILM is doing the FX, which can only be a good thing.

    Because the SFX are being criticized on what is seen in the trailers.

    RE: Re: NYCC interview

    I'm pretty picky about FX and I didn't see anything to criticize. They obviously don't want to give too clear a view of the creatures in the trailer, but that doesn't mean that the FX are bad. We'll find out soon enough.

    Two nice moments with Casey. One from TIFF: https://www.instagram.com/p/BKWl6T8D8TY/ You can see how much affection Matt has for him.

    Pedro

    Matt has provided quotes for Pedro Pascal's first ever cover interview at The Rake:

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BLf7sXXjsj9/?taken-by=therakeonline

    "Pedro Pascal is the quintessential American story, and that's why we don't build walls." Matt Damon talks to The Rake about our cover star, Mr Pedro Pascal, in our latest issue on newsstands now.

    Excerpt of interview via https://likeshop.me/therakeonline but does not have any quotes from Matt or any references to Great Wall (some good photos though).

    I have found a photo of which at us wasn't.
    " Matt Damon with wife Luciana Barroso while shopping for sporting goods, checking out snowboards in Los Angeles."

    There are still other photos but on them watermarks.

    Re: New old pics

    I saw a few photos and they look good but I get warnings for malware on the site and it is blocked.

    The photos are also at this site, from 8 March.

    Shallow thought but he looks really, really good. Love the hair cut. Matt in a suit is just divine!

    Re: Cinematheque

    Many pictures are in instagram. I'm sorry, but I don't like the hair, especially hair color. I don't understand why he can't play in his natural form? Return Bourne's hairstyle, he is with it such beautiful ((

    The haircut is part of his character for a role.

    Re: Cinematheque

    If it is impossible to discuss appearance of Matt, Felicity will remove my post.

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BLkX2-YhOgo/?tagged=mattdamon

    But it is clear that he wasn't injecting botox, as Affleck. Looking at different photos after this event me seems that he is very tired or bad health.

    Re: Cinematheque

    Would delete because it is a link to a guy that steals photos, says nothing but sexual innuendo and trash, and the photo is of bad quality, but please don't make things up or speculate. He looks fine.
