It was the easiest phone call to make," said Matt Damon of enlisting his friends to be photographed at the In Style/Diesel lounge in Toronto and chat about their festival projects. The portraits will be auctioned off to benefit the children's charity One X One, so "I didn't have to sell them on anything," as Damon put it.
