Men's Health article, photos
  • More photos and part of the Men's Health cover article are now online.



    Meet Matt Damon—movie star, Oscar winner, husband, father, Men's Health cover guy. For our first issue of 2014, we spoke with Damon about what a guy who has it all does next. Did we speak to him on the set of his next big movie? No. Try Kodukkur, India.

    In town after town on our India tour, it's the same story. The emcee at a welcome ceremony notes the visiting dignitaries lined up in plastic chairs in the town square. Damon's named is called, and he gives a shy wave before yielding the floor to Gary White. The two are partners in a global water, sanitation, and microfinance group called Water.org. White is a towering figure in the water realm, and Damon is the high-profile rainmaker for the cause. After White absorbs the praise and attention at these meetings, Damon follows up quietly with, "...and I'm Matt." That's all, just Matt. On this road show, he's best supporting actor. As you might expect, he's really good at it.

  • A photo of Matt supporting the Love Conquers Hate campaign and anti-LGBT laws is at the Human Rights Campaign Instagram.

    LA photos

    Photos of Matt and family in LA, and Matt has his arm in a sling (the faces of the kids are hidden, but Stella's outfit and toy is super cute). On-set injury, if he was filming in Vancouver?

    Re: LA photos

    Oh dear!

    Poor Matt. Hope it's nothing too serious. Looking at the way the sling is arranged it looks like a shoulder injury to me.

    Best wishes to Matt for a speedy recovery.

    Re: Elysium DVD

    Seasons greetings all. I'm tempted to get the Elysium Blu-Ray just to see if we can hear what led to that Matt-Sharlto hug.

    Re: Elysium DVD

    I just bought Elysium BluRay last Friday, and yes, in the extras, we can see this hug between Matt and Sharlto. It's told "when Matt met Sharlto for the first time".
    So I watched Elysium for the second time - I saw it in theater in August - and really I like this movie. Matt is awesome. I rather like it more that
    the first time.
    Thanks everybody for your wishes.

    Re: Elysium DVD

    Thanks for letting us know. I've ordered Matt's more recent videos (Promised Land & Elysium) from the local library. Just to let you know, there are over 50 people waiting to loan the DVD (x 2 weeks max each), which is really good news about people interested in seeing the movie, however it will be a couple of years before the poor people on Earth (compared to Elysium scenario) get to watch the movie for free from the library.
