World Water Day
  • Matt and Gary White made a number of appearances to promote World Water Day, including a Bloomberg podcast and a Bloomberg Markets video and The Daily Show. Matt also talked about Ben's tattoo.

  • Matt also spoke about his current plans at Today:

    As for the future, Damon, who lost his dad in December to multiple myeloma, is going to play things by ear.

    “I took all of last year off to be with my dad. It didn’t feel like time off. I might just take another year and regroup. I don’t know what’s next, is the truth. Not working, for me; I’ll still be so busy with the kids and water.org that I’ll be occupied," he said. "I don’t want to sit and stew. But I don’t think I’ll have a lot of idle time. I think there’s a big recalibration.”

    Has anyone seen all the shows? There's a lady who says: "Matt calling himself a dropout movie guy". I don't understand what Matt meant?

    Re: ?

    By dropout I guess he means that he hasn't finished his higher education & don't have a barchelor's/master's degree, because further in the text it goes: "... and praising Gary White for his 3 engineering degrees".
    And movie guy is pretty obvious :)

    I'm glad Matt's taking time to heal.

    Re: little cameo

    Just saw it. Looks like he's following his uncle footsteps.
    Am I wrong or is he wearing Kent's ring?

    The inclusion rider

    Very interesting discussion of the evolution of the inclusion rider. Matt puts it particularly well here:

    “Hopefully, if you can use it as a tool to combat implicit bias, when Dr. Smith does her study again, we’ll see better inclusion in Hollywood. That’s the hope,” he told THR. “The rider itself is not the point. That’s the means to the end. The point is inclusion and hopefully this is the tool that can get us there.”

    Ben's back tattoo

    A LOT of writers are "enjoying" Ben's back tattoo.

    This from Vanity Fair:
    But thank goodness for Damon, Affleck’s friend of 37 years. While on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, the host asked him why he didn’t stop his friend from getting the tattoo. And Damon said, “It’s not one man’s job to tell another man what he can do to his back. I support him in all of his ‘artistic expression.’” Because some friends take this generous approach to friendship and say, “I love you . . . just the way you are . . . even now, with your large back mural.”

    One question remains: does Ed Sheeran have a Matt Damon? I hope so. I really do.

    Stella Artois & water.org

    There are some comments by Matt about water.org (obviously) but also the non-move to Australia & you can view a bit of the art installation. It looks very cool. I would like to have seen it, but unfortunately a trip to NY was not on our docket right now!

    Re: Stella Artois & water.org

    It did surprise me that nobody asked him about Australia.

    Ben's nice little comeback

    Ben has a pretty nice comeback about that petty & mean spirited New Yorker article.

    Re: Ben's nice little comeback

    Yes he did. I was shocked to read that piece in the NY. It read like high school gossip. Surprised it was published. What was the point,except to be snide?

    Matt In Australia Again

    First saw a pic on IG. Didn't know if it was new.

    Now there is a news article. Need to subscribe to read it but I copied the excerpt.

    Courier Mail-2 hours ago
    The Hollywood star was snapped by a local at Lennox Head near Byron Bay this morning after flying out from Los Angeles earlier this week. “The people you see,” the fan said in an Instagram post this morning. Damon previously rang in the New Year at Byron Bay with friend Chris Hemsworth, having also ...

    Spiderman sequel

    Re: Spiderman sequel

    Kind of strange to announce who passed on the role.
