Joel: "We're doing an adaptation of a Charles Portis novel called True Grit, which was made into a movie in the late 1960s with the late John Wayne. It's a Western and it's going to star Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin. I don't know if we’ve always wanted to make a Western. This was just a novel we both really liked, and the opportunity was there to do it."
Shakira fears she'll have to write to Matt Damon's wife and apologise for namechecking her man on her new album. The Colombian pop star pines for the movie star in the lyrics of Men In This Town and can only hope his wife isn't upset with her.
She tells Entertainment Weekly, "I know Matt and his wife. We have friends in common. I hope she's not mad at this. He's one of those good men. He's really something. Maybe I should send an apologetic note to the wife and say, 'Hey, I'm taken too, don't worry'."
Local boys-gone-Hollywood Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and John Krasinski also got shout-outs in People maggie’s annual Sexiest Man Alive issue.
