How would you describe your star, Matt Damon?
I'm biased, but I think he was great. I'm extremely happy with Matt and what he did. I couldn't have asked for a better performance, contribution and support. Across the board, he was just great.
"He's great," says Trinette Faint , the Cambridge-bred actor's personal assistant between '99 and '02. "Matt's very easy going. I was lucky because I didn't work for someone who was a tyrant or crazy."
MATT DAMON has praised ROBERT DE NIRO's directing abilities insisting he's a much better actor after working with his idol on new movie THE GOOD SHEPHERD. Damon admits the experience of taking guidance from De Niro made him realise how many actors are rewarded for overacting - because the CAPE FEAR star insists on keeping everything simple. Damon says, "That stuff gets rewarded a lot of the time. People stand up and cheer for so and so in this performance, and you're just going, 'What the f**k was that?' "That's why you have to just be thinking about the process... You can tell somebody how to win an award... (but) that can't be why you're doing it. "It was a great experience with De Niro because this performance was like the opposite of all of those things. I'm a much better actor for having gone through that process with him."
