Matt looked tired on Letterman

Poor guy looked tired. I'm sure he had to be. He took a flight from Italy to NY. I'm sure he's jet lagged. I hope the Informant does well. Its gotten such mixed reviews. I'll go see it to support him. It looks funny to me. There's a scathing user comment already at IMDB calling it the top 5 worst movie they've ever seen. Wow. That kind of broke my heart. I highly doubt its that bad, lol.

Re: Matt looked tired on Letterman

He looks even more tired in Toronto for the press junket. A full day of press, two major press conferences, lots of individual TV interviews (ET etc), a premiere in the evening followed by a party. And it all started with early morning radio appearances, including Sirius where he trashed the Yankees.

Despite all that, he was apparently at his upbeat best.

Didn't he take his daughter to school too? I just love that guy.

Re: Matt looked tired on Letterman

It must have been Alexia who started a new school in New York (apparently in the same class as Robert De Niro's son Elliott).

Greg Jacobs' mention of Matt's daughter made the Italian press assume he referred to Isabella.

Re: Matt looked tired on Letterman

Don't let a random comment like that break anything. Nine times out of ten comments like that are from trolls. See it and make up your own mind :)

Re: Matt looked tired on Letterman

Thanks. I plan on seeing it anyway. Its not really a random comment. Its on the main page with the title Worst Movie of the Decade.

Re: Matt looked tired on Letterman

There's a few of those comments around, and one mention of walkouts at a preview screening. I don't know how some people can dislike it so much, but it might be claims of smug-ness, as previously proposed. The movie has an attitude (even in its titles on screen), and that may just rub people the wrong way. (Trying not to mention anything for fear of spoilers - not that I've seen the movie.)

Anyway, the premiere audience loved it according to Sharon Waxman.

Best quote of the day's press so far from Matt:

What did his wife, Luciana Barroso, think of his weight gain?

“There was just more of me to love,” Matt joked to OK! at today’s Toronto International Film Festival conference for his new flick. “She was a good sport. We had fun. I loved parading around with my belly. My stepdaughter thought it was really funny, too, that I got all squishy.”

Re: Matt looked tired on Letterman

Soderbergh's style put some people off I fear.
