Premiere photos
  • More photos of Matt, Lucy and John at the premiere are below. A report from the premiere is at People.

    By blending their Christmas traditions, the holidays pay off in a big way for Matt Damon and Luciana‘s daughters.

    “We do the Latin American Christmas Eve gift opening and we do the American Christmas morning gift opening,” the Promised Land actor, 42, told PEOPLE during the film’s premiere on Thursday in Los Angeles.

    “We have this weird fusion for Christmas, but I think it just means more gifts for the kids, so they’re into it.”

    But aside from the present palooza, Damon’s holiday plans don’t include much more than laying low with his family, including Alexia, 14, Isabella, 6, Gia, 4, and Stella, 2.

    “I’m just going to hang out with my kids,” he says. “We’ve been on the Promised Land train a little bit for the last week or so, and we’re looking forward to just settling down.”

    Monuments Men

    Monuments Men has a start date for filming of 1 March 2013 in Germany, Austria, Paris and England. It now has a release date of 20 December 2013 and a budget of $50 million (what was Matt just saying about films which have a release date before filming starts?) Fox will co-finance the picture with Sony and distribute internationally.

    It will bring together the Vanity Fair cover of earlier this year with Matt, George and Daniel Craig (that photo was a fake collage).

    Matt was photographed talking to cast member Bob Balaban at the Gotham Awards last week (before the casting announcement).

    Earlier quotes:
    “I’m excited about it,” Clooney told TheWrap at the Palm Springs Film Festival on Saturday. “It’s a fun movie because it could be big entertainment. It’s a big budget, you can’t do it small -- it’s landing in Normandy.”

    The movie will be based on the book “The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History,” by Robert M. Edsel.

    Clooney said he will co-write, direct and star in the movie, which has been set up at Sony. It will have several meaty roles for actors, though Clooney said it was too early to think about who might fill those roles.

    Here's the list of characters in the book:

    George is playing George Stout, Cate Blanchett is playing Rose and Bill Murray is Lincoln Kirstein. Dujardin would be Jacques Jaujard.

    Premiere photos & Monuments Men

    The dress she wore in that London premiere was very beautiful indeed.
    But in the LA premiere, everything was right: the dress, the hair, the make-up, the jewellery. Well done, Lucy.

    Matt looks good in suits. But I always thought that if he could, he would go to his own premieres wearing nothing but a pair of jeans, a sweater and those brown shoes he loves so much. And he would be the happiest man in earth that way... (ツ)

    Monuments Men sounds great. I share Clooney's excitement about it. (I can't help but notice that George has a fixation with the films of thieves)... LOL
    Seeing the list of characters in the book I would say that Balaban could be Major Ronald Balfour,and there are several roles that both Matt & Craig could fill very well.

    Lucy's dress is lovely and she looks really beautiful. I loathe shiny suits, and Matt does seem the type who doesn't care about dressing up to me.

    Looking forward to Promised Land, I think it will be really good. Monument Men sounds really interesting too.

    Great pictures, my favourite is Lucy and Matt looking at each other. Very nice. Marcia

    Improper Bostonian interview

    Nothing much new but a nice photo:


    Krasinski says that when Damon and Blunt had been filming The Adjustment Bureau together, “Emily had been spewing Boston knowledge. Boston fun facts and how much I was a Boston guy. Matt thought that was hilarious, that a Brit was holding the flag for our favorite city. By the time I met him, we just dove into discussing the Red Sox and the Pats and all these different places that we grew up.”

    “You have a common frame of reference,” says Damon. “You end up seeking out people from back home because they just understand you in ways other people can’t.” He laughs. “John does a good Boston accent, too.”

    Double-dates ensued. “We make plans for going out for dinner, and it always ends as much more,” says Krasinski. “Sometimes we’d get wild and go straight to karaoke.”

    Us magazine

    Part of a story in Us magazine this week (the part about being away for months is definitely incorrect - he's never away for more than 10-14 days).


    Matt Damon's wife helps him to stay normal.

    The 42-year-old actor has been married to Luciana, 36, for seven years and the 'Departed' star loves how supportive she is.

    A source said: ''He's found the trick to having the most normal life possible. Luciana lets him work and is there for him when he needs her. He loves coming home to her after months on set.''

    The couple - who raise four daughters together, Alexia, 14, Isabella, six, Gia, four, and two-year-old Stella - were planning to buy a home in New York but decided on Los Angeles in order to have more room for their family.

    The insider added to Us Weekly magazine: ''Luciana wanted more space for the kids and Matt puts family first.''
