Don’t believe everything you read about Matt Damon’s wedding.
Peculiar details have emerged about the recent nuptials of the "Ocean's Twelve" star to Lucianne Bozan at City Hall in Manhattan — but it turns out their “source” was hardly rock-solid.
Various publications around the world, as well as several Web sites, have "reported" on such bizarre tidbits as a garbageman catching the bridal bouquet, wedding guests dining on pretzels and knishes from a roadside cart, and the newlyweds trying to hail a taxi which was commandeered by a pushy Wall Streeter who told them, "I don’t give a [bleep] who you are — I’m late for a lunch."
The reports, it seems, were based on an account that originally appeared in Defamer.com — and was obviously a spoof, but was picked up without credit and repeated as fact. "Incompetent reporting at its best," groused a fan site at LiveJournal.com.
Damon’s publicist laughed it off. "This sort of thing happens all the time," she told The Scoop. "People just make things up."
