Damon tells U.K. chat show host Lorraine Kelly,"It would either be a six day trip (to London) or a 10 day trip. It's going to be a six day trip."
However, the actor insists he actually enjoys long-haul flights, adding, "I don't mind long flights when I'm by myself actually. I catch up on every thing that I can't do normally. I watch movies, I watch Tv shows, I read books. I actually love it. Nobody can reach me for 12 hours."
“Jason was the first person that I met at Harvard, and I literally almost turned around and went home,” Matt Damon, the Hollywood A-lister, said recently. “I thought, ‘I don’t belong here.’ He remains one of the smartest people that I’ve come across.”
Furman arrived at Harvard intent on studying math or perhaps science. Over occasional shots of bad vodka, he would hang out with Damon and Damon’s friend Ben Affleck, a year younger and still in high school. “We know where each other’s skeletons are buried,” Damon said, “but they’re not too terrible.”
Not terrible, no, but a little embarrassing, for their dorm in Matthews Hall had no shortage of 18-year-old ego. When they met, Damon told Furman he would likely be leaving Harvard later in their freshman year to star in a major Hollywood film. And when Furman came back from an economics class with a grade of 97 on a test, Damon joked, “You’re not so smart after all.” Actually, Furman replied, he didn’t miss anything. His score was reduced so that everyone else’s seemed better by comparison. “I was just ruining the curve.”
