Hardball transcript, junket TV interviews

  • A transcript of the Hardball appearance is here, along with some video excerpts.

  • The junket interviews with TV shows were delayed until today (to allow GMA and 20/20 to have their 'exclusive' last week). Some excerpts from Extra and Entertainment Tonight are below, with videos also available at each site.

    "He’s a great friend," Angelina said of Matt. "Nobody has a bad thing to say about him. He’s nice. He’s a great father; nothing dark about Matt."

    Matt’s real-life persona is a far cry from his mysterious role in this new flick, directed by Robert De Niro.

    "We all know him as such a lovely person, so it is a big transition for him to do this," Jolie said of Damon’s on-screen portrayal.

    "We're friends, and our families are friends, and our kids are now friends, and it's just, for all of those reasons, it's just inappropriate," agrees Angelina with a smile. "I think we just laughed about it. We talked about how neither of the people in our lives cared, because they know us."

    Speaking of home, Matt and Angelina had plenty to talk about on the set of the ROBERT DE NIRO-directed drama, because her due date was exactly the same as Matt's wife, LUCIANA. Ultimately, Angelina had baby SHILOH earlier than ISABELLA made her debut in the world this past summer.

    "Yeah, we saw it on the Internet, too, that they had their baby," says Matt, "and we were like, 'Can we please [have this child already]?' At that point we were dying to get it going, you know?"

    "I've met all three women in his life," says Angelina of Matt's new baby, his wife Luciana, and Luciana's older daughter, ALEXIA (from a previous relationship), "and they're all really great people, and very nice to be with and spend time with. They're fun and they're happy, so obviously someone's loving them and looking after them well."
