We hear: That "The Departed" director Martin Scorsese has no plans to hold a staah-studded premiere in Boston before the mob flick’s Oct. 6 release. But, of course, there will be a New York premiere and benefit bash with Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon on Oct. 3. Do we sound bitter?
Damon also used the event as an opportunity to present his clean water agenda. He and producing partner Marc Joubert are making a documentary about the lack of clean water in Africa in hopes of raising money and awareness to help remedy the situation.
Damon says since becoming a father to his newborn daughter he has become more sensitive to issues affecting children around the world.
