Time interview, Ben as godparent?
  • There's a new interview in Time with Matt, George, Brad and Ellen Barkin here. Some excerpts:

    DAMON: I'm an Obama guy too. I think a lot of the problems in the world would be mitigated if he were the face of our country. I haven't ever met him or talked to him, but he's the first person in a long time who I've been inspired by.

    BARKIN: Think about it. Do we know anything about Robert Redford's children? Does he even have any?
    DAMON: I worked with him, and I don't know.
    PITT: I have four, if you haven't heard.

    What other leading men do you like?
    CLOONEY: I like Clive Owen a lot. Did you see Children of Men?
    DAMON: That was my favorite movie last year.
    CLOONEY: Me too.
    DAMON: One of the most underrated actors right now as a leading man is Christian Bale. He turned in two great performances last year. He was great in The Prestige, and he was great in this movie called Harsh Times.

  • In an interview with The Insider Matt suggests that Ben may be a godparent to Isabella, but it could all be in jest - here:

    But does George feel a little left out given that Brad's a dad and Matt's on diaper patrol?

    "Yeah, deserters! That's what I call them," the sexy single star says with mock seriousness. "I'm the godfather to a bunch of kids, but a lot of my other friends, they didn't ask. It hurts a little bit."

    To which Matt replies: "Well, with the godfather, you basically find the richest person you know and you make them the godfather. So I went with Ben Affleck."

    "I had a bad year," says George, laughing.

    I just read the whole TIME interview with these guys and it was pretty funny. I really liked George saying that he (and Matt) tosses Brad out to the paparazzi so they can have a clear getaway. I thot Brad liked the adulation. Guess he doesn't.

    Adulation 24/7/365 must be pretty nigh impossible to take.

    Did you like the Bourne crack? Or was it just a jab at all DVDs? Not very subtle...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, Felicity, but I think that's the first confirmation we've gotten that Ben is Isabella's godfather, and I'm fairly sure Matt is Violet's. That's very sweet.

    Or, it could be jest like you suggested, but if so, it's a very odd jest to make
