    George Clooney on Matt: “I’ve done six films with him and he’s absolutely the best.

    Matt Damon: “I was to play a researcher at the Met. But George changed it so now I’m a Monuments Man curator who dropped his career to rescue art. I’m a little familiar with that because my brother’s an artist and drags me to collections. I own some pieces. Not exactly Rembrandt... my brother’s stuff.”

    I have nothing against Lucy but I hate that dress! The material is so bad

    also, if both lucy and nora were at the premiere who was watching the kids in LA?

    i thought they didnt have a nanny...

    There are babysitters in the world. It seemed liked the kids were also in NY. Nancy was also at the premiere.

    I agree...interesting choice in her dress just like the white one at the previous event - the material seems odd for both dresses. But to each their own.

    Matt just said in an interview that it's harder to travel with the kids having "their own lives now". I think that applies more to Alexia who is 15 and in high school as the other girls are barely starting school and Isabella is in 2nd grade. This current world tour is right in the middle of school days but I'm sure a private tutor is on hand. Matt and family have been in Boston/NYC area since Saturday and it seems they will be returning to LA another week from now.

    I can't access the clip in Australia, but Josh Horowitz interviews are always fun:

    Re: MTV clip, reddit

    Kind of cute... MTV proposes to the cast that Bill Murray is the sexiest man alive and they all agree.

    Great reddit AMA from Matt!

    I'm so upset, our TV hookup just crashed and we can't get it fixed until tomorrow... Grrrrr.... I'm going to miss Kimmel. :-(
    Not happy

    Find another television! That's really bad timing.

    Here's Matt receiving a sympathy Rotten Tomato award:

    Re: MTV clip

    Josh tells George that there's not one but two sexiest men alive in this movie. But he thinks Matt and Geoge's runs are over and it's time for bill murray. Josh declares Bill MTVs sexiest man alive. George advised Josh to make sure he tells bill that he's MTVs sexiest man alive because it will make Bill really happy. Josh shows Clooney the hat he will give bill. it is a baseball hat that says "the sexiest man alive" on it. George said, you'll need a bigger hat because once you give it to him his head will get bigger and explode.

    They cut to Josh telling Matt that Bill is the sexiest man alive and matt says, "I agree and by the way so does bill." Josh asked what is the sexiest thing about Bill and matt said, "his sense of humor. I mean, that's kinda the sexiest thing about anybody. and he's pretty much got the best sense of humor for kind of 4 decades running of anybody on planet earth"

    They cut to Goodman being told and he says bill is his choice for sexiest man alive too, but it's a secret he keeps from bill.

    They cut to George being asked what is Bill's sexiest feature and george's answer to bill's hands and ears.

    The cut Hugh said that the sexiest thing about Bill is his sense of style. he brings style to every set he's on by wearing his Hawaiian shorts, even when he's supposed to be in costume.

    when bill took the hat he said, thank you. i can pass this around to other peoople to wear all night. bill said of himself, "I think I'm most sexy under a cold shower. it feels just like the power in me is fighting that cold water and saying you can overcome it."

    Kelly and Michael

    Cute part of the interview when George talks about how "difficult" Matt is to work with. Ha, ha. The audience eats it up!

    George on Kelly and Michael redux

    Ha, ha, just realized I forgot to leave the link.


    Judging by twitter, the Kimmel show was a big hit.
