We bought a zoo, photos
  • Cameron Crowe discussed the music of We bought a zoo at The Uncool, including:

    Crowe: It started on the first day. I wasn’t going to play music during the actual takes. I usually do that a lot. But I’m standing out there for a scene in a junior high hallway with Matt Damon and Colin Ford. The way Matt was looking, I kept thinking about the Tom Petty song, “Don’t Come Around Here No More”. I just said, “I’ve got to play it!” (laughs) So I played the song during the next take. Matt Damon immediately soaked it up and turned to me and said, “That was amazing. You’ve got to play that again. And what else do you have?” I don’t think he’d ever acted with music playing during the take.

  • Photos of Matt and family cycling around Stanley Park in Vancouver are at Punkd Images, Zimbio and Lainey Gossip. Matt's mother Nancy and her husband Doug are also in the photos.

  • Comments by Matt about Brad Pitt's and Angelina Jolie's intrusive life with the paparazzi originate from the February Adjustment Bureau press junket, and recently surfaced in a German magazine as part of an interview to promote the DVD release. The comments were definitely not made in a German TV program, as claimed by People, and accepted by every other publication that took up the story. People's article was also clearly incorrect in stating that Matt and Lucy married in March 2003, when they were yet to meet.

    People magazine

    They have now revised the marriage claim in the article (but not the German tv claim).

    Fun to see pictures of Matt and family, though its almost too bad because they were enjoying such quiet in Van at first. I miss his hair, but Matt looks amazing(ly buff)!!

    Re: People magazine

    Matt's been in Vancouver since 26 June, so he's done well not to be photographed, and barely sighted, up til now.

    Bigger photos at Lainey:

    I love the pictures of Matt and his family in Vancouver. He looks very good, very fit. And totally bald! (Very Eurotrip) =)

    Re: Vancouver

    He has a tattoo on his right arm?

    Re: Vancouver

    I think so - must be for the role or early production photos. (Because he's not already hitting every cliche as an ex-convict character.)

    He's apparently in the gym twice a day at the moment and running the Grouse Mountain (Grouse Grind) regularly.

    ETA: in close-ups, the tattoo looks like a gun. Ah, prison tattoos.

    I hate that the family now has to deal with photographers, but aren't the girls just getting more and more beautiful!

    Gia's always been very serious, but she's certainly gorgeous.

    A fake poster at Comicon appears to be for Elysium. It links to a fake recruitment video on the website.

    Re: Elysium

    Sharlto Copley has posted a link to the Armadyne site on his Facebook page (and provided no additional comment):

    He's also appearing a meet and greet at a South African store in Vancouver next week.

    And Sharlto has now taken the post down.

    Steven Soderbergh talked about how Matt is as 'discrete as a 14 year old girl' in discussing his retirement plans at Comic-Con:

    Soderbergh, however, confirmed Matt's comments in subsequent interviews.
