Benefit, various

  • Matt confirmed to Cindy Adams that he will be filming a movie in New York in the fall (Father-Daughter Time?)

    Fellow awardee Matt Damon: "I'm making another film this fall in New York." I said, enough already with you. Every movie I see seems to star Matt Damon. You have to live in Bulgaria to find a picture Matt's not in. "Not my fault," he grinned. "I'm a poor man. Give me a break. I have to work. Four kids to feed."

  • Another report on the Made in New York Awards is at the New York Times. A photo of Matt and award winners with Michael Bloomberg is from the NYC Mayor's Office Twitter. A photo of Matt and Mayor Mike Bloomberg is at DNAinfo. A video of Matt talking about working in NY and receiving the honor is at NYC Media.



  • Elle Fanning discussed her role in We Bought A Zoo at the LA Times:

    Elle: And another movie I did with Cameron Crowe called “We Bought a Zoo.” That’s with Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson and I play Scarlett Johansson’s cousin and we both work at a zoo and the story is based in a zoo. Matt Damon’s family buys the zoo and he comes in and tries to get it back to what it used to be.

  • An article at the Huffington Post praises Matt's performance in True Grit and his career.
