  • Matt praises Cate Blanchett ahead of the Oscars - at news.com.au

    The American star told News Corp Australia that Blanchett is in a class alongside only Meryl Streep.

    “There aren’t very many male or female actors in that stratosphere,” Damon said.

    “It’s a very special thing to see. I remember being 27 years old and seeing it: she walked out after shooting something with us and (director) Anthony Minghella and I just looked at each other, shook our heads and went, ‘What the hell was that?’

    “Now, she’s the same actress except with 16 more years of experience. Her range, which I didn’t see an end to back then, has only expanded. She’s a really special person.”

  • Matt and Lucy attended the Night Before Oscars benefit.  A photo off Matt with Snoop Dogg is at his Instagram.  Matt is not expected to attend the Oscars.

  • A photo of Matt and Lucy earlier in the week in LA was at People.

    Another pic from the Night Before party

    Lots of other pics on this twitter account

    Twitter site for the Night Before benefit

    The Graham Norton show aired in Australia on Sunday night. Sorry for the lack of notice, but it should be available on Channel 10's site.

    Photos of Matt and Isabella (I think) in a car park outside a mall are at isopix.

    The French TV program has aired. Were there any highlights?

    Re: Updates

    Yeah! It was great. More serious and less funny than Graham, of course, but very interesting! Drucker presented each actor and each character, obviously talked about the meeting Jean Dujardin-George. George introduced Matt as "Brad Pitt that everyone knows!" They talked about Cate Blanchett (She wasn't on set, supposed to be at the Oscar...though it was pre-taped!!)and Rose Valland, with a report about the real Rose. Matt was asked about his character, Clooney as a director and the relationship between his character and Cate's character. He said"if it was the war,I would certainly spend the night with her!)There was a few trailers, some I didn't see before. The most intense moment was the tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman (when emission was recorded it was just after his death). Matt was very moved, he said it was the first time since his death that he saw a extract of Philipp 's movie (The Ides Of March, and a pic from Ripley) and talked about drug that takes the best of us. Bill and Bob spoke French, even though Jean said to Bob "speak English!!" . Harry was there too. My hubby was very interested and wants to watch the movie!! Bingo!

    Matt appeared on the Kimmel post Oscars show with Sweet Brown (no idea who that is, but she seems to be well known - from an ad?)

    Pre oscars party

    Matt and Lucy were at a pre Oscars party at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Sat night.



    “The party last night at the Beverly Hills hotel was amazing,” she said.
    “Everybody was there, it was just crazy.
    “Ben Affleck was in front of me. Matt Damon, Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx were lining up.”

    Here's the pretty bad Kimmel clip

    French TV emission

    Matt and the cast of TMM on French TV on Sunday 03.02.14:

    (Scroll down for the second video)


    "A collective invitation which was in the heart of the actor; he wanted that nobody was putted on a different level than the others"

    Nice pics and the scan of French magazine "Premiere" by The Frenchies Fans de G.C:

    Another article and a pic of the cast: (from FFGC)


    You Tube videos with a very very bad quality (links of the others parts on the first page)- Maybay better in a few days.

    Re: French TV emission

    The emission will be replayed on TV5Monde (search your country and program here : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TV5Monde )

    A new You tube extract:

    Thank you to "The Frenchies Fans of George Clooney"
    (Have a look at this site, there are some others videos mostly about George and Jean. This one about Matt is unhappily deleted)
