Save the Children, various

  • A photo of Matt and Lucy with Save the Children President and CEO Charles McCormack from the Greenwich event is here. More photos from the event are at Socialite Life.

  • A video from the event is at Access Hollywood, including Meredith Viera talking about Matt (transcript below):

    Meredith Viera
    I think he is one of the good guys, I really do. Obviously he’s a phenomenal movie star, but that doesn’t define him. He is ordinary in every good sense of the word. He is just a decent man, I think he cares so much about the world around him and the people around him, and making this a better place. And he’s a good family man. I was just talking to him and he’s got a fourth baby on the way and when he talked about his children it was very moving and I think he feels that way about the children of the world. I think that’s very genuine.

  • A partial transcript of Alec Baldwin talking about Matt from the NBC video (linked yesterday) is below:

    Alec Baldwin
    I worked with Matt. I did Good Shepherd, which Robert DeNiro directed. I admire Matt and I love Matt and he’s one of the great gentlemen in the business. He’s a doll, he’s a wonderful actor, he’s a super-smart guy and he makes… he covers both sides of the aisle film-making-wise. He does really clever… I loved the Informant, I thought he and Soderbergh made a fun movie.

  • A brief interview was at People.

    With three kids and another on the way, Matt Damon's household is about to get even busier.

    "We're bracing ourselves for our next little tornado," Damon told PEOPLE at Thursday night's Save the Children's Celebration of Hope fundraiser in Greenwich, Conn., where he was honored for his work with the organization.

    "We're excited," said the actor, 39. "But it is a lot of work."

    Responding to reports this week that he'll return to the NBC comedy next season, Damon told PEOPLE: "If they'll have me, I would love to pop in and see the gang again. I had a great time doing it. I've worked with Alec Baldwin before, and I am a big Tina Fey fan."
