Hollywood Reporter interview

  • Matt, Jamie Foxx, Denzel Washington, Richard Gere, Alan Arkin and John Hawkes were interviewed for a Hollywood Reporter Actors roundtable - full and short videos are available here, with photos here. Selected quotes are below.

    "I would try to steer my daughters away from acting," Damon tells THR, "Women are in a different business than we are. It is just brutal for women. For us, the roles get really good at 40 and beyond. And that’s really when you start doing your best work."

    THR asks whether the actors worried about their career and Damon reponds with "Always. I mean, every single one of us started out getting rejected repeatedly, and I don’t think that ever leaves you. I took a lot of jobs earlier on; had I taken my foot off the gas a little bit, I could have been better. I just didn’t want to stop working, partly out of that classic actor insecurity."

  • Matt will appear in an undisclosed role in a new climate change documentary produced by Jerry Weintraub and James Cameron.

  • announced a new partnership with continues to partner, promote, explore, and launch ideas that engage supporters of the water crisis online. As a result of this partnership, will have the opportunity to engage with players of Farmville 2 (which today has more than 8 million daily active users and 60 million monthly active users) to gather ever increasing support for solving the water crisis in our lifetime.

And next week will launch its online campaign for Toilet Day, inviting supporters to "Talk sh_t" for the week of November 19th on their social media channels.
