American Cinematheque Tribute to Clooney
  • As Matt was unable to attend the American Cinematheque tribute to George Clooney, he sent a video from Morocco - details at AP and the Daily News:

    During the awards ceremony, video greetings from some of Clooney's best, but physically absent, friends showed on the screen. One clip featured actor Matt Damon arguing and appeasing angry patrons outside a cinema, and doling out wads of cash. The film that was inspiring the rapid refunds: Clooney's critically maligned "Batman & Robin."

    "George Clooney: An American Cinematheque Tribute" is set to air Dec. 13 on the American Movie Classics cable channel.

    And:
    Matt Damon sent a video from Tangiers, where he was shown personally refunding disgruntled moviegoers coming out of a "Batman & Robin" showing.

  • Matt talks about working in Goa and Bollywood films here.

    LOL! That's hilarious about the 'Batman & Robin' bit. It would have been even funnier if Matt had been cast as Robin way back when auditioned for it. Then he really would have reason to pony up some dough!

    And it's not as if George doesn't make fun of his role in that movie himself. Those with access to the right TV channel will be able to see the clip later this week - hopefully someone will post it to YouTube.

    Matt in a bar

    There is a video on YouTube, which shows Matt in a bar, alone, and drinking wine while shooting Ultimatum. It felt bad as I thought he must have genuinely quit alcohol.

    Re: Matt in a bar

    Matt's never claimed or suggested that he has stopped drinking alcohol, for whatever reason.

    I think it's really depressing that someone would make a video of that and put it on YouTube.

    Re: Matt in a bar

    Oh, darlin', they'll put anything on YouTube, especially if it puts a celebrity in the worst possible light. Not even a nice guy like Matt is impervious to their slander and ridicule.

    The Star is claiming it's true but I don't think Matt could possibily have been in LA at the time. I think it's fiction.

    Just to follow up - Army Archerd reported that Jack had come through the surgery fine on October 3, so he's had the surgery in the past day or two.

    Matt was in Morocco at the time.

    Where am I when a multi-millionaire starts throwing his money around? Not fair!! Never mind. Do you think he could refund those of us who sat through another stinker of a movie made by one of his mates. I'd love to get my money back for Mr & Mrs Smith. MP

    I'd love to get my money back for Oceans 12. And Matt was in that movie.

    And enough already. Nobody seriously thinks anybody got real money, do they? Batman & Robin obviously hasn't played anywhere for years, even in Morocco.
