  • Matt pre-recorded a segment with Michael Douglas for the Stand Up To Cancer telethon. The text of Matt's statement to camera was at the Huffington Post.

    "Cancer tried to take my dad, a man who runs marathons, sails boats, loves his grand kids, tolerates his kids. It tried, so far it failed, and tonight, I am so proud to be standing up to cancer for my dad." --Matt Damon

    Matt looks great in these photos! Good to see him and Ben and John & Emily hanging out together too! The couples really make a nice group of friends.
    I like Matt's glass frames much better than the brown ones he was wearing a year ago. He's looking healthy and fit too!

    Love Lucy's short dress/shoes combo with the long necklace. She looks hot!

    Quite a compliment to Matt to appear first when so many stars were on the show - Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, etc.

    I never saw Lucy in a mini-dress or black fishnet tights before but, she looks hot!

    - TIFF -

    Nice pics! Mrs. Affleck was not there?

    Argo has rave reviews. Looks like a really good movie.


    PS: Ben sounded a bit jealous of the kiss between Matt and Michael Douglas in the interview he gave to the NYT the other day...LOL :)

    Re: - TIFF -

    Jennifer Garner was there.

    Matt has apparently already left Toronto for NY.

    Interview with Ben confirming Matt's move to LA:

    Another positive in Affleck's family life is the recent move to LA of his best friend, collaborator and fellow Oscar winner, Matt Damon. Damon had resisted moving to California from the US east coast (both grew up in Boston), but Affleck's excitement at having his best friend close by again after so long is palpable. "I've been hounding him and hounding him to live here so our kids can know each other and go to the same schools and hang out the way we did," Affleck says, "and finally he caved."

    Since Damon, his wife Luciana and daughters Alexia (Luciana's daughter from a previous relationship), Isabella, Gia and Stella have moved to LA, the pair have been as inseparable as ever. "Maybe Matt sacrificed all his principles, but that's much less important to me than having him across the street," he laughs. "It's like we're regressing to high school but it's really fun and their kids are over all day.

    "When we grew up we were about three blocks apart and we don't live much further apart than that now. It's cool, especially because for years we were both so busy and for a long time we never got to see each other except on vacation."

    Re: Various

    I can kick myself because someone on twitter did post Matt's pic from vanity fair. He's in character lounging by the pool laughing. Now I can't find it and I don't know why I didn't link to it. If by chance I can find it I will be definitely link.

    I have mixed feelings about Matt & fam moving to la. I don't think the decision was made lightly but I think they did try hard to find a place in ny. (they seem to be staying in Matt's bachelor pad for the school year). I don't want them to get hounded but they seem to have done a good job while they were there this summer.

    Have a question. In the series of popsugar pics there is one pic of Ben & Jen where they are standing with a blond woman. I saw her before at the contagion premiere and you could see her and lucy talking in the.background while Matt was doing press. Who is she?

    Re: Various

    Thanks for the heads-up - here's the post/pic:

    Nic Martin‏@BellaNichola
    Damon & Douglas. Liberace. Can't wait. http://pic.twitter.com/atVpHt8m

    The blond woman is a WB rep/publicist. She was with Matt on a lot of the Contagion press stops.

    That pic is freaking hilarious.

    Re: Various

    It's Jennifer Allen, she's Matt's publicist and is always in the background of premiere pics either on the side or chatting with Luciana while Matt is being photographed in co-stars only pics.

    Re: Various

    That's not Jennifer Allen. Jennifer has blond frizzy hair and only attends major appearances (not Regis and Kelly visits).

    Re: Various

    Nope not talking about Jennifer Allen.


    I hope this link works but this is the woman I'm talking about. I found a video recently from the informant premiere I think and I see her in the background wiith Lucy and kyle. Probably is some connection with the studio. No big deal. Just wondering who it was. Should have linked to it in the first place.

    Re: Various

    I still say WB publicist/staffer. Matt and Lucy went home from Toronto on a WB jet.
