    The fundraiser auction got heated, with several guests bidding against themselves. "This must be a new San Francisco tradition, bidding against yourself," Damon quipped. "My compliments on the selection of the wine tonight." The auctioneers sold three trips to visit Damon on the set of his next movie, The Human Factor, about Nelson Mandela, which will be directed by Clint Eastwood and filmed in South Africa, for $200,000 each. "If Eastwood doesn't like the idea of having a lot of people around the set," Damon said, "I guess my trailer's going to be pretty crowded with a lot of people playing video games."

  • From an article at People:

    Damon, who's known for his charity work, said his daughters may well accompany him on some of his overseas missions.

    "The way you have to parent them is to show them the world. Explaining the world can only go so far," he said. "You can read about devastation every morning – it's on the front page of the newspaper – but when you actually go there and see it, you realize this isn't something you can turn the page on."

    Damon is the sole male in a household of four females. His wife, Luciana, gave birth to their daughter, Gia, over the summer. She joined big sisters Isabella, 2, and Alexia, 10.

    "It's great," Damon said about being outnumbered at home. "It is really great."

    Matt Damon enjoys the fruits of his labor as he hands out food at the OneXOne Feeding America charity event Thursday in San Francisco. "It is helping kids here at home and all around the world," the actor told PEOPLE about the nonprofit organization. "You can’t really argue with that."

  • Photos of Matt and family at Los Angeles Airport are at Faded Youth Blog and Growing your baby.

  • Matt is featured in the new issue of L'Uomo Vogue - details at the Washington Post:

    The November issue of L'Uomo Vogue, the men's fashion magazine that she also helms, will be dedicated to Africa. And half of all the advertising revenue will be donated to Africa-related charities, no small consideration in these financially stressed times.

    The issue includes images of Whitaker, Quincy Jones, John Legend, Matt Damon and even Michelle Obama all expressing their affection for and their personal connection to Africa.

  • Comments on the test screening process for The Informant at the Los Angeles Times:

    On the other hand, Soderbergh is no slouch -- he demands even more from himself than from his actors or crew. He's famous for self-criticism, always showing early cuts of his films to friends, eager for brutally honest advice and counsel. At a recent early test screening of "The Informant," he brought along his own personal focus group -- David Fincher and Spike Jonze. Soderbergh arrived two hours beforehand, taking the time to personally tape off the seats in the far corners and front row of the theater, so audience members would see the film from the best seats possible.

  • Matt is expected to attend Vote Fest 08 this weekend in Miami - more details here.
