  • Photos of Matt jogging in Miami from Mavrix:

  • Martin Scorsese won the Director's Guild award - photos of the ceremony at Just Jared.

  • A new book by a former Democratic fund-raiser includes references to Matt and Ben here:

    There are, however, six and a half pages on a memorable trip to Camp David with Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (there’s bowling!)...

  • An interview with Matt at the UK Telegraph is here. Thanks to Jan.

    But Hollywood A-listers will do that to secure Damon's services. That is where his career is at right now. He's a proper power-player – he makes movies happen. Not that he has the swagger to match: he insists his ego isn't bruised by knowing that someone else may have been attached to a project before him.

    'That's the way it works,' he says evenly. 'Every script has someone else's fingerprints on it. For years Tom Cruise's fingerprints were on every script. I don't think I was even the second choice for the [Good Shepherd] part. I was probably somewhere down the line. But to me, you want to just be on that list. And try to stay on that list. And not be comparing yourself to other people on that list.

    ...'It's not the running that wears me down,' he announces to the crew as he hops down from the treadmill, 'it's the overacting.'

    Matt Damon is wholesome and smart, and ridiculously fit and healthy. But he is too buzzingly enthused to be dull or worthy. He is a great conversationalist and thoroughly friendly. He likes a beer and boxing; he and Mark Wahlberg are planning a film about two real-life fighters from Massachusetts. He is excited that the upcoming Ocean's 13 film is launching with a splash at Cannes; he has never been. He is equally thrilled by his cameo roles in Coppola's next film Youth Without Youth, and in Margaret by the writer-director Kenneth Lonergan, in whose play This Is Our Youth he appeared on the London stage in 2002.

  • Another interview is at the Adelaide Advertiser here, including:

    Luciana also has a daughter, Alexa, from a previous relationship. "The personal joy that comes from having a child is indescribable," Damon said. "It's like trying to explain a perfect guitar chord - there aren't really words for how great it is." Smiling, he admits his wife's previous experience as a mother has been helpful, but she also has forced him to find his own way. "For the first few months I kept handing the baby over saying: 'Why is she crying?'"My wife would say: 'I don't know. Just because you've raised one child doesn't mean you have all the answers. You have to figure it out, too.' "But the marriage has been great, better than I ever thought, I have to say. She is a great mother and partner and she's perfect for me in every way. It just keeps getting better."

    Thank you Jan for finding that great interview in the Daily Telegraph, it's not a newspaper I usually read so I would never have seen it. I love that his parents pushed him and his brother to pursue their dreams, and they're both happy and successful in what they do. We all have to make a living, but it's so much easier when we can do something that we love and inspires us as well.

    I know that I'm very fortunate to do a job that I love and I work with fantastic people, it makes such a difference I can't describe it. I literally go to work with a smile on my face each day, (most of the time). MP

    Damon and Wahlberg as a couple of down and dirty pugilest? Now that's a movie I'd love to see! Far more than any Matt and Ben movie. I hope it gets made

    'Tales of Matt & Ben at Summer "Camp"'...I must admit, I may seek out that book just to read about that!

    I have to say, I love those pics of Matt jogging. I love them so much, including some of the ones that came before them and the video footage there is, that I've begun jogging around my neighborhood. It's just such a down-to-earth exercise for such a down-to-earth guy, and it's no doubt better for the body and mind than most other forms of exercise. Call me crazy, but knowing Matt likes to jog is making me into a jogger! I always knew I wanted to emulate him as an actress, but I never thought jogging would go into the mix!

    I've seen a picture of Matt in the Berlin train station. His hands are a mess, like they've been stepped on or in a vice, very bruised and bloody not nice at all, and he's holding what look to me like a pair of flip flops in his hands! He looks very tired though. MP

    I saw the hands, too, and I was thinking that perhaps this was Jason Bourne seen immediately after the end of the Supremacy, ie: shot, bleeding, etc. He was wearing that same coat we saw at the end scene in Russia (post meeting the Neski girl). We'll have to wait and see.
