    You know, what disgusts me is that the paps never give these people a freakin' break. It's like assault by camera, and it's really ridiculous. Matt gives the media plenty of sound bites, he's a great sport-- ALL of the damn the time. Why couldn't they just give the man his vacation?
    These are just PEOPLE at the end of the day. Let them have some degree of normalcy for a change for god's sake. It's a darn shame when a mother has to stick her hand up to shield her baby's face like that. If I were Matt, I would have blown my top off. You get off a long flight, you're tired, you've got your babies in tow, and some asshole, comes out of nowhere and chases you and your babies down with a camera in the middle of an airport. Give me an effing break.

    Re: Disgusting

    Agreed. There were multiple photo agencies present with photographers at the Miami airport, and the combined collection would be over 60 photos (just from one site) of essentially the same image - parents trying to protect children.

    Only certain sites will post ambush photos like those - Celebrity Baby Blog and others have policies which do not allow pictures where the paparazzi attention is obviously unwelcome.

    Re: Disgusting

    I agree. I took a look at one photo and stopped. If it was me and the paparrazi were stalking me and my family like that I would want to kill them. The whole family looked distressed. Sickening.

    On another subject, the new season of Entourage starts on ITV2 next week, looking forward to Matt's episode. When do you get it in Australia?

    Finally watched the Informant trailer, absolutely hilarious, 0014 because he's twice as good as James Bond - brilliant. Marcia

    I knew that line from the book was going to be in the Informant trailer. One of the more memorable quotes.

    The most stressed we ever see Matt and Lucy is when they're confronted at an airport by photographers. It must be one of the most difficult parts of their life, and they've got a lot of travel expected in the months ahead to promote various movies.

    Matt won't be on Entourage until the final episode of the season, so don't expect it anytime soon. I'm not sure when the next season starts in Australia (on cable), but they haven't starting promoting it yet.

    For the information of any Australians: Ponyo will be released in Australia on 27 August.

    Re: Disgusting

    I also looked at one site and stopped.
    Why would any "fan" want to see photos of people they supposedly "like" being obviously harassed? There should be legal recourse against these photographers - and the sites that pay for their pictures.

    Matt's in India

    And the non-stop travel continues. Matt has been to Delhi and now moved to Chennai, India, on behalf of OneXOne looking at water projects.
