Interviews, mixed media reports

  • In an interview with the Italian paper La Stampa, Matt states that he will be filming a project with George Clooney before the Liberace project, scheduled for June 2010. The Clooney project is likely to be the previously mentioned film about Osama Bin Laden's driver, and his legal challenge - reports are here and here.

    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.

  • An interesting interview with Matt is at the French magazine Gala - some translated excerpts:

    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.

  • Dave Karger of EW on his Christmas Oscar longshots:

    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.

  • And from EW's Lisa Schwarzbaum top ten movie marvels of the decade:

    10. A parting pronouncement: Matt Damon is the decade’s top under-the-radar Hollywood star, the movies’ MVP.

  • Matt's on the cover of the new issue of UK's Empire magazine, promoting another exclusive preview of Green Zone.

  • A sighting from the Miami Herald (which relates to 23 December):

    Matt Damon was spotted solo at Cafe Prima Pasta on Wednesday night, sipping a Peroni while waiting for his takeout order for two of chicken limone and gnocchi formaggi.

  • Erroneous reports from the Australian media claimed Matt was on a cruise ship off the coast of Australia and would be in Sydney for New Year's Eve. This was completely false. The Boston Herald claims Matt will be in Cambridge with family for NYE - and indeed, Matt was in Boston with his family for New Year's.

    We hear: That Matt Damon and family are in Cambridge for New Year’s weekend - perhaps we will see them at Fenway Friday?
