The Martian

  • Interviews from The Martian's press day: People, including includes quotes from an interview at Entertainment Tonight, E Online, Access Hollywood and Extra.

    JoBlo's report on the NASA JPL visit; a similar report at Yahoo; an audio commentary by Matt on the trailer at Yahoo.

    During the interview, Matt opened up about life at home with wife Luciana Barroso. He gushed, “I have an incredible wife… so she takes all the pressure off me.”

    The two have been happily married for almost 10 years, and are also workout buddies who hit the gym together. "I have to get in shape for this ‘Bourne’ movie coming up. I've done yoga. I cannot touch my toes. So I would not say we do couples yoga, no. She does yoga and I've tried to do it a few times and it's sad.”

    Matt also set the record straight on rumors that he was invited to meet the Pope when the Pontiff visits the US. He said, “Oh, I think he's amazing. He's also Argentinian, so everybody on my wife's side of the family obviously thinks he's amazing.”

  • There's a good video at Coming Soon which includes highlights of the Q&A at NASA JPL and video of Matt placing his handprints in cement for the 'Mars Yard' (and talking to journos). Thanks to Gregory.

  • Matt and family were at Disneyland on Thursday for Gia's seventh birthday. Photos are at the Huffington Post and Zimbio:
