Re: Updates

What Paula said! Only thing missing is the sight of Matt in some safari gear coming out from behind some palms ;)

Re: Updates

Wow! To see those animals in the wild. That sounds like the kind of thing you'll recall on your deathbed as something you did worth doing. Good for you. Amazing.

Matt's interview

Great interview (video) of Matt on RTL. It is the one that I said it was deleted, but it's now available again. You will hear that, when alone on location, Matt studies philosophy during the evening on the Internet!

Thank you so much, B!

That was wonderful, I wish it had gone on for an hour! I love Matt's European interviews, we often get extra little tidbits.

Cate

Australian interview
http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/movies/cate-blanchett-puts-art-and-soul-into-the-monuments-men-20140307-34aom.html

Ironically, she filmed her role entirely on sound stages in Germany, at the famed 100-year-old Babelsberg Film Studio in Berlin, and worked largely with Damon in her scenes. ''It has been a long time since I worked with Matt on The Talented Mr Ripley [1999] and, during the intervening years, I've had great admiration for the choices that he has made.'' The two have talked about arranged marriages for her three boys and his three girls, Blanchett jokes, adding: ''He's a great father, but I'm also really looking forward to when he eventually gets around to directing a film, too, because I know he will be great at that."

Re: Cate

Thank you! It makes me so HAPPY when Cate speaks glowingly of Matt. I love her myself and know that Matt admires her greatly.

French radio interview

Hi Felcity, the travel is nice again?
Greg, I found your idea of "the sight of Matt in some safari gear coming out from behind some palms" very funny!! :)

Thanks for Ben and Matt's video: I like to see Matt in his every-day .

French interview available; unfortunately for english listener, the voice of the translator covers Matt's voice a lot.

http://www.europe1.fr/MediaCenter/Emissions/Nikos-Aliagas/Sons/Les-incontournables-d-Europe-1-Matt-Damon-1908633/
-Did you know this story before shooting with GC?
-Soldiers are fighting to free Europe from Nazism, and others for works of art, doesn't seem derisory during war?
-Hitler wanted that all art was destroyed in case of defeat, does this movie give you another idea of Art?
-Did Jean Dujardin teach you some French words to help you ?
-It's incredible that Ben Affleck and you both are Hollywood stars and buddies in real live?
-What represented the Oscar for you in 1998, the begining of a big aventure or a fulfilment?
-Final word: a right man!

Video

Cute video about a Norwegian journalist with a few Matt cameos.

http://www.tv2.no/play/underholdning/george-clooney-sjarmerer-norske-aud-799315.html

Monuments Men is still doing well, coming in 6th for the weekend for a total of $70 million, so it has now made back its production cost. Internationally it has now made $45 million. I think Grant Heslov said it to make $140 million before it would be in profit

I'm in Port Elizabeth on the South African coast to watch a cricket (sports) match, and it was rained out with no play possible. On next to Durban, where rain is also expected for the next game.

Matt Damon was the word of the night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. Jimmy Kimmel was the guest. There was nothing new about Matt, no new clips, but it was fun to watch a show with Matty as a big topic. Worth watching.

Oh and they took a Who Would You Rather poll--.Jimmy or Matt. The results were revealed at the end of the show. LOL.
