  • Video footage of the ceremony, and an interview with Nancy (to Matt's surprise) is at CBS, and other reports are at Access Hollywood and AP, including:

    "I can't believe I'm standing on a star with my name on it. I'm going to show my kids that," Damon beamed during the ceremony.

    "Ben and I lived in a really crappy apartment about five blocks away from here and we used to walk up and down here. It'll probably sink in when I've walked down the street in about six months and see someone peeing on my star," he laughed.

    "A few times in my life I've had these experiences that are just kind of too big to process and this looks like it's going to be one of those times," Damon said during a Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony attended by his wife, mother and a throng of screaming fans.

  • Defamer reports that Matt was congratulated in ads from Universal, Endeavour, Jimmy Kimmel and the Red Sox, as shown below - updated with the Kimmel ad.

    Kimmel writes, "Congratulations on the star and sorry we ran out of time. We'll try to squeeze you in soon." Kimmel closes the print ad by stating, "This ad cost me $8,512."
