Question: What's in your future?
Matt: From next month I'll be back to work with Clint in Hereafter. Then I'll make a film with the Coen brothers, True Grit, with Jeff Bridges. Then another movie with Clooney and then again with Soderbergh. I'm very lucky.
Gala: What is your recurring nightmare?
MD: I'm riding my bike in the middle of a deserted road and I can not stop pedaling. Like I'm being forced. Just mentioning it, I'm shaking!
Gala: What do you think in the morning when you look in the mirror?
MD: That I am simply the luckiest man in the world. I have an exciting job, a career that I love and a really great family.
Gala: What stresses you most?
MD: I am an eternal worrier, so everything stresses me. Most recently, when I realized that the handle of my refrigerator was scratched. I was sick!
Gala: What can prevent you from sleeping?
MD : I can not stand to see children suffering. For me it is unbearable. Even more so since I have become a father.
Best Actor: Matt Damon, The Informant!
At this point, Damon seems like a good bet for a supporting nod for Invictus. And that’s fine. But his more impressive work was as the world’s worst whistle-blower in Steven Soderbergh’s out-there comedy. Bonus points for Damon’s impeccable voice-over work in the film.
10. A parting pronouncement: Matt Damon is the decade’s top under-the-radar Hollywood star, the movies’ MVP.
