    Hanging out

    Great interview on Today. Very indicative of the respect people have for Matt. He got kind of emotional when Kathie Lee gave him condolences.

    It's like they hang out with the Hemsworth's 24/7. Lucy & Elsa's dresses even look like they might have come from the same designer.

    RE: Hanging out

    Elsa hangs with immediate family and inlaws in Australia since she lives there but it seems Lucy has alientated her sisters who live in Florida. Only her half brother Xuan Bozan has accompanied them in recently China and London and in Miami.

    Terry Press, pres­ident of CBS Films notes that Damon faced undeserved condemnation because he had not framed his answers with care. "Nobody in Hollywood thinks for one minute that Matt Damon is abusive or inappropriate," she says. "He is a completely upstanding, honorable person. He got into a situation where he answered truthfully but without consideration."

    Today Show

    For many reasons I feel identified with the #MeToo movement and that's why to me, Matt's statements in last December seemed very inconsiderate to the pain that many women (and men and children) had to endure throughout their lives.
    So, I really liked the apology Matt offered on Today.
    I thought he was sincere, authentic.
    Good apologies are so rare that they are always welcome.
    You did it right, Matt.
    And as a general rule, it's always wiser to talk less and listen more.

    PS: I know I'm probably the only person here who thought Matt should apologize, but good people always acknowledge their mistakes and apologize for them. And I think Matt is above all a good person.

    Re: Today Show

    It is interesting how people differently treat Matt's words. I am "MeToo", and not once. But I completely agree with his comments. And it not because I am his admirer. For example, I didn't agree with his words about gays. But in this case I don't understand that in his words was wrong? What he told everything about was reasonable. And I am very sorry that he had to apologize.
    People on the Internet were this time divided into three groups. Some approve his apologies. The other don't trust him, as usual. The third are disappointed and consider him the coward.

    And Syl.Of course, Matt Damon is good person. So many years he was good and suddenly he became bad? So doesn't happen.)

    Hemsworths & Damons

    I don't think we've seen this yet? Most extensive discussion I've yet seen from Elsa about the friendship. They apparently have adopted Matt & Lucy's 2 week rule.

    Matt Damon Film Festival Weekend

    HBO and Paramount network showed Matt films most of the weekend. It was nice to see Matt's best of the big screen represented. Contagion, Bourne series, Candelabra, Informant and Stuck on You. He has had a great career. Hope to see more. And The Martian is on FX. Nice way to close out my weekend.

    I don't know if it is legit, but I find the tweet of this little guy adorable. Ian Lee @JwleeIan "@mattdamon_ Dear Mr. Damon, I am doing a project involving a actor who has changed the world and I chose you for providing clean water in Africa and if you could contact me so you can tell me about it for my research that would be great. Love, Ian" Matt's people should check it and maybe get in touch with him. (Also, I have noticed that A LOT of people think the account @mattdamon_ really belongs to Matt.) Syl.

    Matt's people don't read a social network and if read, then inattentive. It is proved by story with Embassy of Finland.

    Yahoo - Water.org interview

    Matt and Gary are interviewed by yahoo business about water.org

    I have found this comment under article about Ben A. It is an answer to a question - Matt Damon lives in LA or in NY?

    — "Matt still is down the road from Jen I see Jen's car outside their place from time to time as I walk by the house Lucy and Jen do dancing class together in Brentwood too"

    Lucy and Jen?
